Southern Apple Fritters
Because these aren't as heavy and doughy as doughnuts, these fritters are really delicious. They are wonderful for a rather sinful breakfast..
2 cups all-purpose flour
¼ cup white sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
4 large apples, peeled and cored
2 Tbsps. cooking oil,OR Cooking spray
½ cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons Watkins cinnamon
½ cup confectioners' sugar (if desired)
1. In a medium bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg and salt. In a separate bowl, beat together eggs and milk. Stir milk mixture into flour mixture until smooth.
2. Heat regular size skillet with 2 Tbsps of cooling oil, or Spray with PAM cooking spray.
3. Slice apples into ½ inch rings. Dip apple slices in batter and fry, a few at a time, turning once, until golden. Drain on paper towels.
4. Mix granulated sugar with cinnamon in bowl. Dip fritters in this mixture and serve (or dust with confectioners' sugar instead if preferred).
Now,put the coffee pot on, and share with your best friend...ENJOY!
