Apple Fritters!

A quick recipe to throw together, a bit tedious to fry, but upon tasting these bad boys I instantly realized I had something truly amazing. These homemade apple doughnut balls are ridiculously good. Totally worth the time standing over the frying pot. The first batch tasted much better than they looked…

Recipe:

1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
dash salt
3 tsp. cinnamon 
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 tbspn butter, melted
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1 – 1 1/2 cups chopped apple

Add dry, add wet, add apple, drop into at least 4 inches of 350 degree oil and turn after 1 minute, pull when brown and cool on wire rack.

Icing: Mix powdered sugar and milk into a paste.

The second time I made these, I used a small cookie scoop and the result was a much more appealing ball shape.

  1. Have you ever determined a method of storage that keeps them from getting soggy? I am running into the problem myself…going to try a paper sack next…just wondering if you ever came to a conclusion or better option? THANKS!
