Apple Fritters
Today we have a fun and
delicious recipe to share with you.

These apple fritters turned out great!
Light, delicious and really easy to make..
but not at all like the apple fritters you can buy at the bakery.....
which is a good thing for me because I absolutely love the apple fritters found at the bakery...
This recipe,  is very reminiscent of the sugar donuts that I ate as a kid.
