Ingredients
Apple fritters

  • 2 cups diced apple
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • 2 eggs

Directions
1 Combine the apples and cinnamon in a medium bowl.

2 Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the apple mixture and sauté until softened. Stir in the sugar and heat until dissolved. Continue cooking, stirring frequently, until the liquid is reduced to a golden syrup; set aside to cool.

3 Heat three inches of vegetable oil in a large pot over medium-high heat until a candy or deep-fryer thermometer inserted into the oil registers 325°F.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk; stir in the bread cubes and cooled apples until combined. Stir in the flour, baking powder and salt until a doughy consistency is reached (the batter should be sticky and hold together in a clump when spooned).

5 Carefully drop 1/4 cup of the batter into the oil, four or five at a time, and fry to a dark golden brown, flipping once. Drain the fritters on pieces of paper towel.

6 To make the glaze, whisk together the icing sugar, milk and vanilla in a small bowl. Dip each fritter into the glaze and let sit on a cooling rack to set before serving.
