Apple Fritters

1 cup all purpose flour
1-½ teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
⅓ cup milk
1 egg
1-½ cups chopped apples
2 Tablespoons sugar and ¼ teaspoon cinnamon mixed
Powdered sugar

Heat a couple of inches of canola oil in a saucepan over medium-low heat. You can also use a fryer that has a set temperature gauge.  I had mine at about 350 degrees.  If your oil is too hot the outside will be brown before the inside gets done.

Peel and chop your apples. I used Granny Smith but feel free to substitute in your favorite.

Mix together the flour, baking powder and salt. Add in milk and eggs. Mix just until combined. Fold in the apples. It will be a very thick batter.

Before you cook you need to decide the size you want them. I used both a 1-½ tablespoon scoop and a 3 tablespoon sized scoop. The smaller one makes a fritter you can pop the whole thing into your mouth. The other makes one that takes a couple bites. Drop batter into the heated oil. Fry until golden brown, 4 to 6 minutes turning once during cooking.

Remove to a paper towel lined plate for just a moment. Then roll in cinnamon and sugar or dust with powdered sugar. Either way makes for a delicious apple fritter!
