Easy Whole Wheat Apple Fritters
I made these for breakfast one Sunday morning, and my kids asked for them all week long. They were incredibly easy to make and tasted amazing.
1¼ cup whole wheat flour (I use fresh-ground soft white wheat)
⅓ cup sugar
1 tsp aluminum-free baking powder
¼ tsp Kosher salt
1½ tsp ground cinnamon
¼ tsp. nutmeg
½ tsp. vanilla extract
1 TBS butter
⅓ cup whole milk
1½ cups chopped apple
1 cup powdered sugar
2 TBS whole milk
oil for frying (I use grapeseed oil or organic canola oil)
Large bowl & spoon
Sharp knife/cutting board
Paper towel lined plate
Small bowl & spoon
Peel and chop the apples.
Melt the butter.
Fill skillet with about 1-inch oil. Heat oil in skillet to 375° F (190° C)
Mix the powdered sugar and the 2 TBS milk in a small bowl. Set aside.
Mix the dry ingredients in the large bowl. Make a well in the center. Add the milk, egg, melted butter, and vanilla.
Stir until just mixed (do not use a whisk – the dough is really thick). Gently stir in the apples. (There is going to seem as much apples as there is dough – this is a good thing).
Test the oil by dropping a single water drop into the oil. If it skitters on the top, it’s ready.
Place a spoonful of the batter in the oil (about the size of a golf ball). Add spoonfuls until you have 4 or 5 fritters in the oil. Don’t overcrowd the oil.
Let cook for about a minute. Using the slotted spoon, carefully turn the fritters, and let them cook 45-6o seconds more.
Using the slotted spoon, carefully remove the fritters to the paper towel.
After a minute or two, roll each fritter in the powdered sugar.
Place on the wire rack to cool and dry.
about 16 fritters – about 8 servings
