Apple Fritters

It all began with the Quick Trip's apple fritters and with my curiosity as to what happens when you play with recipes. HERE is the link to Quick Trip Kitchens. You can spot the apple fritter in the back somewhere, between the donut and the cinnamon roll.
I was hopeful, but soft of knew it would not be exactly the same thing.
It can't be unless you have the store's recipe. Makes sense, right?
Ok, so I had everything in the house and started to play with ingredients:

For the Apples:
2 large or 3 small apples
2 TBSP sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
For the Batter:
1 and 1/2 cups flour
1/4 + 2 TBSP sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
3/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon oil
oil for frying
powder sugar for garnish

Peel apples and slice/cube and toss with sugar and cinnamon and set aside.
Combine the dry ingredients for the batter and then the wet ingredients and mix together.
Then carefully fold the apples in.
Heat the oil in a deep fryer or deep skillet until it sizzles and scooping 1/4 cup for one apple fritter, drop it and fry until bottom turns brown.
Turn fritter over and fry other side until edges are crisp.
Drain the fritters on paper towels and while still hot / warm, powder with sugar.
The oil needs to be really hot, so try with 1 teaspoon of batter before you begin frying the full size fritter.
Enjoy !
