Apple Fritters

Apple Fritters are luscious deep fried donuts filled with apples, cinnamon and drizzled with an easy three ingredient glaze. You can have these scrumptious treats in your hot hands in less than thirty minutes. Make sure you stash a couple for yourself or you might blink your eyes and they will be gone.

These are one of my grandkids favorite goodies.  They just can not get enough of them!

Fritters:

2 Cups All-Purpose Flour

½ Cup White Sugar

2¼ Tsp Baking Powder

1¼ Tsp Salt

1 Tsp Cinnamon

2 Large Eggs

¾ Cup Whole Milk

1 Tsp Vanilla

3 Tbsp Butter, Melted and Cooled Slightly

1½ – 2 Cups Fresh Blueberries

Glaze:

2 Cups Confectioners/Icing Sugar

1½ Tsp Light Corn Syrup (or Golden Syrup)

¼ Tsp Salt

¼ Tsp Vanilla

1 Tbsp White Sugar

1/3 Cup Water

Vegetable Oil for Deep Frying (or Similar Oil)

Instructions:

Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl. Whisk to combine.

In a medium bowl, combine the eggs, milk, vanilla and melted/slightly cooled butter. Whisk to combine.

Make a well in the dry ingredients and add the wet ingredients. Stir just until combined.

Now add the blueberries and fold in.

Get a cooling rack and set over a non-stick baking mat.

Using a deep fryer or heavy, deep pot, heat 2-3 inches of oil to 375° F. Tip: If you don’t have a thermometer, test the oil heat by dropping a bit of batter in. It should float, sizzle immediately, and turn golden within a minute or so.

Drop fritters by the spoonful in to the hot oil. Cook until the underside is deep golden brown. Flip over and cook the other side.
