Apple Fritters

Standard

I love apple fritters, but the ones available at the local donut shop tend make my tummy a little upset.  Something about the oil they use.  So here’s my homemade version.

1 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/3 cup milk
1 egg
1 cup peeled apple chopped into small bits
Coconut Oil

Glaze:

2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons milk

Sift together flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg.  Whisk together milk and egg and stir into dry ingredients until just combined.  Fold in apple.  Pour about 1 1/2 inches of oil into skillet.  Heat oil on medium high heat.   Use a big spoon and kind of dribble batter into hot oil until you get the size of fritter you want, they puff up a bit in the hot oil.  Cook until brown, then flip and cook the other side.  Transfer to cooling rack placed on top of sheet pan and glaze.

Make glaze by stirring milk and powdered sugar together in a small bowl.  Drizzle over apple fritters.  Wait approximately 3 minutes for glaze to harden, then flip fritters and drizzle glaze over the other side.
