As the days cool and coats are pulled out of closets, my mind starts to warm up. My fingers itch for creative and exciting things to do. With little time and energy, due to an education, I am thoroughly enjoying, I haven’t had the chance to make my abstract ideas into a concrete reality. I’m hoping with my break in a month new things can come for my blog. Right now, I’m soaking up every bit of instruction I’m given.
I’ve found small windows of downtime to create things. Most recipes I’ve been wanting to try. The latest was apple fritters. Can I eat this every day? Please? An apple sliced, dipped in a batter, and then fried in oil. How can that taste bad? It can’t.
I’m torn between saying it tastes like a doughnut or an apple pie. Maybe you can decide. The recipe is simple and fast. Give it a try.
- Apples (Granny Smiths are best)
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 t cinnamon
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 T vegetable oil
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 cup flour
- 1 t baking powder
- 1/4 t salt
Start by peeling your apples and slicing them thinly. Core the slices with a small cookie cutter or a knife. Mix together your batter (all the ingredients except for the apples).Dip apples in the thin batter. It’s okay if there are lumps.Fry in hot vegetable oil until golden brown. Place the golden apple fritter rings on a paper towel to soak up any excess oil while you fry up the next batch. Sprinkle the warm apple fritters with powdered sugar. Eat while warm.
