It's Too Yummy Tuesday!
On select Tuesdays I share delicious recipes either inspired by my books or that are just plain delicious!
Today's recipe I hit on when I was looking for ways to use up some apples.
1 3/4 c. flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 slightly beaten egg
1 c. milk
1 tbsp. melted shortening
2 cups peeled apples, chopped into small pieces (though I've done this without peeling them first and it works)
Oil for frying
Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Whisk together egg, milk and shortening, then pour onto flour mixture. Blend just until smooth, don't over beat. Fold in apples. Heat oil 1" deep in large pan or use deep fryer. Drop batter by spoonfuls into hot oil. Fry until browned on each side,
Some suggestions for serving:
As a side dish, serve with chicken, ham, or mac and cheese
As a snack or dessert:
Dip in maple syrup, honey, or caramel sauce
Toss with powdered sugar while still warm
Toss with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar while still warm
Makes a couple dozen fritters, depending on the size of your spoonfuls,
