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.
1 3/4 cup
tart cooking apple, finely chopped
ground nutmeg or cinnamon
- In a large bowl, stir together the flour, cornmeal, 2 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. In a medium bowl, combine egg whites, apple, and milk. Add to flour mixture all at once and stir just until combined.
- In a deep, 12-inch cast iron skillet, heat 1 inch vegetable oil over moderate high heat, to 375º or until a 1-inch cube of bread browns in 30 seconds.
- Carefully drop the batter by heaping tablespoons, several at a time, into hot oil. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until golden brown, turning once. Using a slotted spoon or wire mesh ladle, remove and drain on paper towels.
- In a paper bag, combine 1/3 cup sugar and nutmeg. Add the hot fritters, several at a time, and shake to coat.
