Ingredients for Big Apple Fritters

To make Big Apple Fritters, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 cup finely chopped apples (about 1 large apple)
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • Powdered sugar, for dusting

Step-by-Step Instructions for Big Apple Fritters

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together the milk, beaten egg, and melted butter.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
  4. Fold in the chopped apples.
  5. In a large, deep skillet, heat about 1 inch of vegetable oil over medium-high heat until it reaches 350°F.
  6. Use a cookie scoop or spoon to drop the batter into the hot oil, a few tablespoons at a time. Cook for 2-3 minutes per side, or until golden brown and cooked through.
  7. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the fritters to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.
  8. Dust the fritters with powdered sugar and serve immediately.

Tips for Making Perfect Big Apple Fritters

  • Use a firm apple variety, such as Granny Smith, for the best texture and flavor.
  • Don’t overmix the batter – just stir until the ingredients are combined.
  • Be sure to use a thermometer to monitor the oil temperature, as the fritters will cook best at 350°F.
  • Use a cookie scoop or spoon to drop the batter into the oil for uniform-sized fritters.
  • Serve the fritters immediately after cooking for the best flavor and texture.

Serving Suggestions for Big Apple Fritters

Big Apple Fritters are delicious on their own, but here are a few ideas for serving them:

  • Drizzle with caramel sauce for a decadent dessert.
  • Serve with a dollop of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
  • Add chopped nuts, such as pecans or walnuts, to the batter for a crunchy twist.
  • Pair with a cup of coffee or tea for a delightful breakfast or brunch treat.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

  1. Can I make the batter ahead of time?
