Apple Fritters

Prep: 30 mins
Total: 45 mins
Makes about 3 dozen

Directions

  • 1In a large bowl, whisk together flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt. In another bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, butter, and vanilla. Gently fold milk mixture into flour mixture until just combined. Fold in apples.
  • 2Meanwhile, heat 2 inches of oil in a medium heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high heat until a thermometer registers 350º. Set a wire rack in a rimmed baking sheet.
  • 3Working in batches, drop heaping tablespoons of dough into oil. (A small ice cream scoop works especially well for creating uniform-size fritters.) Cook, turning once, until puffed and golden, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to rack with a slotted spoon. Let cool slightly, dust with confectioners’ sugar, and serve.
