I made these apple fritters for the night of the super bowl, but I’m only getting around to posting the recipe now! It’s been a busy few weeks. These were really delicious – I had to get the leftovers out of the house immediately to keep me from eating all of them.
for the fritters…
4 ¼ cups all purpose flour
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 egg, room temperature
1 cup milk
Combine 2 cups of the flour, baking powder, and cinnamon in a bowl. Set aside. In a separate bowl, whisk together the sugar, butter, and egg. Set aside.
Peel, core, and dice the apples. Add the prepared dry ingredients and the apples to the wet ingredients, and stir to combine.
Alternate adding the remaining 2 ¼ cups of flour and milk, stirring just to combine.
On a floured surface, roll the dough into a log that is ~24 inches long. Let rest for 30 minutes.
Preheat deep fryer to 350F. Prepare the glaze by whisking all ingredients together (except for the walnuts). Transfer the glaze to a squeezy bottle and set aside.
Cut the dough-log into 24 equal pieces. Fry 6 fritters at a time, about 2 to 3 minutes per side until golden. Remove from oil and dry on paper towels.
Drizzle with the glaze, sprinkle with walnuts, and dig in!
