Apple Fritters

A "quick fix" for the next time you are craving something sweet.

Moe was looking for something sweet.

So I went looking for something quick to make.
Found just what I was looking for on Seemingly Greek.

Not only are these little fritters tasty, but they
 take less than 30 minutes to make from start to finish.
 

Apple Fritters

Source: Seemingly Greek

1 heaping cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
dash salt
1 - 2 tsp. cinnamon (depending on how much you love cinnamon)
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 T. butter, melted
1 egg
1/3 cup milk + plus more if needed
1 - 1 1/2 cups chopped apple, your favorite kind for eating, peanut sized or smaller
oil for frying - 350° F to 375°F

Glaze
1 tablespoon melted butter,
1 cup powdered sugar
vanilla extract
and enough milk to cream to make a glaze.

Mix all dry ingredients together, slowly add the wet ingredients minus the apple. Carefully mix until well combined but not overly beat,gently fold in apple pieces. The batter should be the consistency of a light cake mix. Once the oil is ready (when a test drop of dough floats to the top of the oil) then using a cookie scooper or soup spoon, place a few balls of dough into the oil. Be careful not to overcrowd and watch carefully for the underside to turn golden brown, then gently flip over and continue frying until done. I cooked mine about 45 seconds per side, but they were the size of golf balls - adjust cooking times based on size of fritters and temperature of your oil. It is always a good idea to test one to ensure it comes out like you are expecting.
