Here is a recipe for a treat, that will definitely be welcomed by your family or your friends anytime! You can serve fritters hot for breakfast, brunch, snack or dessert with vanilla ice cream on side. Sprinkled with cinnamon or drizzled with caramel sauce….. I am thinking I should just go and make some right now – don’t you? They are very easy to make and don’t take too much time to cook. Chances are that they will get eaten as fast as you can make them!
1-1/2 cups of flour
2 teaspoons of baking powder
3/4 teaspoon of salt
3/4 cups of milk
1 tablespoons of sugar
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
Mix all ingredients together and beat gently until smooth.
Pick nice firm apples, peel them, core and slice into round circles about 1/2: but no more than 3/4″ thick. Using tongues (or fork), dip each slice into batter mixture and drop into hot oil. You will need to turn the fritter over once one side turns golden brown and rise to the top of your oil. When they are cooked on both sides, gently lift them from hot oil and place on absorbent paper that will soak up excess grease. You can then either put them into a mixture of sugar and cinnamon or sprinkle them with icing sugar mixed with a bit of vanilla sugar of just place them plain on a serving plate.
Also try: Banana Fritters by pealing firm bananas and cutting them into rounds about 1/2″ thick. Sprinkle pieces with about 2 tablespoons of sugar and about 1 tablespoon of orange juice, let stand for 20 minutes. Dip banana rounds into the batter, making sure it coat the entire piece. Drop one by one into hot oil and fry same as Apple Fritters.
