Apple Fritters

Want your home to smell like a snow-covered log cabin deep in a pine forest with a herd of deer nuzzling each other nearby? Deep fried apples and cinnamon will do the trick! This is a quick, simple recipe that is great for breakfast, brunch, or dessert.

2 cups all-purpose flour

3 tsp baking powder

1/4 cup granulated sugar

2 tsp cinnamon

3/4 cup milk

2 whole eggs

2 tbs melted butter

2 cups finely diced apples

1/4 cup powdered sugar

Mix flour, baking powder, sugar and cinnamon together in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, mix milk, eggs, butter. Add to dry ingredients, mix lightly. Fold in apples.

Use a small scooper to scoop out rounds balls and drop into heated oil. Cook 4-5 fritters at a time.

Fry in oil 350-355 degrees. Cook 4-5 minutes until fritters are golden brown. Test one to make certain the fritter is cooked through.

Drain on a baking rack. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Enjoy!
