I am not a morning person.
I need a warning label that says, "Do not attempt interaction between the hours of 5 a.m. to 10 a.m. OR until thoroughly caffeinated."
Which is why in this household, breakfast pastries are made and served at a decent hour...as dessert.
But these apple studded fritters were so quick and easy to make it had me channeling my inner, peppy, happy morning person to wake up early the next day and make again!
We should totally make these together at the ungodly hour of dawn. Are you with me?
Here's what you'll need...
Glazed Apple Fritters
adapted from Family Kitchen
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 medium Fuji, Gala or Golden Delicious apples
1 cup powdered sugar
2-3 tablespoons milk
oil for frying
In a saucepan or electric skillet, heat 1/2 in. of oil to 375 degrees F.
Mix together dry ingredients in a bowl. In a separate bowl mix, whisk eggs, melted butter, milk and vanilla together. Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until almost combined.
Add the diced apples and mix thoroughly.
Drop batter by tablespoons in the hot oil. Fry until golden brown on both sides (a total of 3-4 minutes).
Take out of oil and let cool for 5 minutes before glazing.
Spoon, drizzle, or dunk warm fritters in the milky glaze.
