Amish Apple Fritter Recipe Yummy


ingredients

for fritters
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
3 large eggs
1 cup all purpose flour
3 tsp baking powder
½ tsp cinnamon
½ tsp salt
¼ cup milk
3 tsp fresh lemon juice
3-4 cups peeled cored and chopped granny smith or gravenstein apples - firm pie apples -
vegetable oil for deep-frying - approx. 3 - 4 cups- enough to come halfway up sides of pan or skillet -
for glaze
1¼ cups powdered sugar
¼ tsp vanilla
3-4 tsp warm water - thin enough to make the glaze - paintable -

directions

in a large bowl - or the bowl to a stand mixer - cream the sugar and eggs for 1-32 minutes with a mixer
to this add the flour baking powder cinnamon salt and milk mix these ingredients well
in a separate bowl mix the chopped apples with the lemon juice using a spoon add the apple mixture to the batter and stir well to combine
heat vegetable oil to 370 degrees - use a deep - fry thermometer or use an electric skillet with a temperature control - It is very important to make sure the temperature is hot enough to fry the fritters correctly
once the oil is at 370 degrees scoop out really large tablespoonfuls of the fritter batter - as big as you can get ’em - and carefully and gently slide the fritter into the hot oil
when they get to a true golden brown color carefully turn the fritters over to the other side - I used two spoons to carefully flip them - and continue cooking - this should take approx 3-4 minutes on each side -
when the fritters become brown on both sides - you might have to flip them over again to make sure both sides are brown - then you know they will be ready and cooked through
using a slotted spoon remove the fritters one at a time to a paper towel lined - several thicknesses - plate to drain and cool
to make a glaze for the tops of the fritters mix together the powdered sugar vanilla and water in a small bowl until you have a nice - paintable - glaze
using a pastry brush brush this glaze over the entire top of the fritter let glaze harden slightly turn it over and - paint - the glaze on the bottom place glazed fritters on wire rack- let glaze harden then serve
