100 year old Apple Fritter Recipe, quick and easy apple fritter recipe,

Jimmy has a new Kinect.  And all the guys in the neighborhood have been hanging out at my house to play it.
A few days ago I turned to Ida for a simple snack to feed them while they were Javelin throwing in my living room. I came across a fritter recipe .  Like all of Idas recipes, this one is very flexible.   It is also uber easy and fast.
After they were all exhausted and ready for their afternoon nap,  Jimmy said  "thanks for the fritters.... could you add more apples next time?".  So, the recipe below is the one I made.... but the next time I will add 2 cups of apples to make it even more ...... apple-y.

100 year Old  Apple Fritter Recipe

1 3/4 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/3 tsp salt
1/2 cupful milk
2 eggs
1 tsp oil or butter
3 tbsp sugar
1 cup diced apple

Beat eggs extremely well (until fluffy).  In a bowl, put your dry ingredients and mix them well, then add milk, butter/oil, eggs......Mix well until you have  a thick batter, then add your apples.
Heat your cooking oil to 350 degrees and  drop batter by spoonfuls into the oil.  (Don't make them too big or they will not be done in  the middle.  Watch them closely  and do not walk away while frying.  1-3 minutes on each side.  Remove from oil and lay on a paper towel or brown paper to absorb excess oil. 
They are ready to eat plain but you can sprinkle them with powdered sugar.
Also ... if you like you may add 1/4 Tsp  cinnamon to the recipe.

  1. These sound delicious and not overly sweet like the ones sold at the major donut shop. They would make a nice treat for my better half.
