A tender and moist apple fritter recipe that will make your friends think you are a master baker.
1 cup apple (diced)
1 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3 Tablespoons granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg (beaten)
2/3 cup milk
vegetable oil , enough to have 2 inches in your cooking pot
3-4 Tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
Makes 12 small fritters.
Peel, core and cut the apple into very small
pieces, place into a small bowl and set aside.
Stir the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt together in a bowl.
In a large mixing bowl, beat the egg and milk together.
Slowly add and mix in the dry ingredients.
Stir in the diced apples.
Place a medium size, heavy bottom, deep sided sauce pan on the stovetop.
Pour in enough cooking oil to measure 2 inches deep.
Warm the oil over medium-high heat and bring to 350F. on a thermometer.
Make about 3 or 4 fritters at a time by dropping rounded teaspoonfuls of the batter into the hot oil. Use long tongs to flip them over once or twice and cook about 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown in color.
Work in small batches so they do not burn.
Line a plate with paper towels or brown paper and use tongs to remove the cooked fritters from oil to drain.
Combine milk and vanilla in a small sauce pan
and place over low heat until warm.
Stir the confectioners' sugar into milk mixture.
Whisk slowly, until well combined.
Dip doughnuts into the glaze,1 at a time, and set on a cooling rack to drain.
