Apple Fritters


Here's a delicious recipe we enjoy in the fall that I make using my dad's fresh apple cider. So good!!

2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and sliced into 1/4" pieces
1/2 cup cornstarch
2 cups flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
3/4 cup apple cider
2 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons butter, melted
3-4 cups canola oil for frying

Glaze:
2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup apple cider
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

In medium bowl, sprinkle cornstarch over sliced apples to coat. Set aside. In large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Add apple cider, eggs, and melted butter. Whisk together until moistened. Fold in apples. 

Heat oil in Dutch oven to 350 degrees. Using a large serving spoon, heap portions of batter into hot oil. Press batter lightly with the back of spoon to flatten. Fry, keeping oil temperature between 325-350 degrees. Cook until a deep golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer fritters to wire rack. Repeat for remaining batter. 

For the glaze, in medium bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, apple cider, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Top each fritter with a spoonful of glaze while still warm. Makes about 8 fritters.
