Doughnut Shop Style Apple Fritters

*Grocery Cart Challenge Recipe Swap Friday*

This is my very own recipe, that I somehow managed to write down, so I truly hope you enjoy it as much as my family does. :)

*Apple Fritters*

3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
4 tsp baking powder
5 tbsp melted butter or margarine
1 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs-beaten
1 (12 ounce) can evaporated milk
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tbsp flour
2-3 gala apples


1/2 cup (1 stick) melted butter of margarine
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3-5 tbsp hot water

~To make glaze~

Place powdered sugar, melted margarine/butter, and vanilla in medium bowl.

Notice my lovely new whisk?

Whisk until smooth.

Slowly add hot water 1 tablespoon at a time, until your desired consistency is reached.

~To make fritters~

Preheat vegetable oil on medium heat. Make sure you do not fill the frying pan more than halfway. *I really wish I knew the exact temperature, but I do not have a probe.* You will know the oil is the right temperature when you place the dough in and it rises to the top.

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg in large mixing bowl. Add eggs, melted margarine, vanilla and evaporated milk, stir until fully incorporated.

Notice how extremely neat I am when adding dry ingredients!:)

After peeling and coring, cut apples into small chunks and place in separate bowl. Sprinkle with lemon juice and toss, then sprinkle with 1 tablespoon flour and toss again, making sure to coat all pieces.

Gently fold apples into mixture.

Drop by the large spoonful into hot oil.

Fry until golden brown on each side, turning once. I didn't time this so you'll just have to watch!
Drain off excess oil, then place into shallow baking dish and drizzle with glaze.

Set on cookie rack to cool, and to allow any excess glaze drip to off.

Mmmmm... these look so yummy!

When we go to Pigeon Forge, we always eat at least one meal at Applewood Farmhouse... they have their own apple orchard and make their own apple butter, apple fritters, apple julep, etc... Its one of our favorite places. My hubby says it may even be his favorite restaurant ever! Too bad its two hours away!

Along with the imaginary weight that others also gained, I think I may have ruined my keyboard forever because of drool.
