- Instead of making the glaze, try dusting with powered sugar while still very hot and it will great it's own "glaze".
- The dough fries up a little darker than donuts, don't think that you are burning every batch. They are burned when they are black, not brown.
1/4 cup sugar1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup apple, diced
2-3 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
In a medium skillet, add enough oil so that it is approximately 2 inches deep. Heat oil on med-high heat to about 320 degrees. Add dough in small batches, very carefully to oil in heaping tablespoons. Cook until brown and slightly puffed, about 1 minute, then flip. Cook for another 1-2 minutes, until both sides are browned. Transfer to a paper towel to absorb excess oil (if not using glaze, dust both sides with powdered sugar immediately). Drizzle both sides of fritter with glaze (directions below) while still hot. Allow glaze to set up, about 3-5 minutes and serve warm.
In a medium mixing bowl, add milk one tablespoon at a time to powdered sugar. Stir in vanilla and continue stirring or whisking until smooth.
