Apple Fritters Recipe

Saturday, January 31, 2009

Straight from Grandma Hepworth's kitchen...good old fashioned apple goodness! These are soft and light and have just the right amount of flavor. Our family eats up a plate of these in no time flat!

The ingredients:

1 cup buttermilk
2 eggs, separated
1 teaspoon sugar
pinch of salt
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 cups flour (I used part whole wheat)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1-1/2 cups finely diced tart apples (about 2 medium)
Vegetable oil
for frying

Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg together.
 (because I used whole wheat flour, the batter is a little darker
than it would be if I had used all-purpose white flour)

Blend buttermilk and egg yolks with flour mixture. Beat  until well combined. Set aside.

Beat egg whites until stiff, then fold egg whites and chopped apple into buttermilk and flour mixture.

 (after the egg whites and apples are folded in)

Heat oil in heavy pan, then drop batter by tablespoonfuls into hot oil.

Cook until golden brown, then roll over with a fork and cook the other side until golden also.
 (My kids thought they looked a little like chicken nuggets before we glazed them)

Remove from pan and roll in sugar or drizzle with orange-butter glaze. Serve hot with fresh fruit.

My favorite!! Can't find good ones in the store anymore so I stopped even trying years ago. I will definitely bookmark and have to try these!

I tried it and they were good. I think I made the apple chunks too small and I mixed the batter too much. Next time, I will do better.
