PREP TIME: 16 MINUTES

TOTAL TIME: 2 MINUTE
FOR THE FRITTERS:
- 1 ½ tsp. Cinnamon
- 1 ½ C. Flour
- ⅓ C. Milk
- ¼ C. Sugar
- 2 Large eggs
- 2 tsp. Baking powder
- 3 Tbsp. Applesauce
- ½ tsp. Salt

FOR THE GLAZE:
- ½ tsp Vanilla
- 2 C. Powdered sugar
- ¼ C. Milk
- Mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.
- Add in the applesauce, eggs and milk, and stir until just combined.
- Stir in the apples.
- Heat several inches of oil in a deep sided pot or skillet on the stove until the oil reaches 375 degrees.
- Drop ¼ cup of the batter into the oil, and fry for 2-3 minutes per side until golden brown and cooked through. Drain the fritters on a paper towel lined plate or rack.
- Blend together the ingredients for the glaze until smooth.
- Dip the fritters into the glaze, and allow to rest to set before serving.
RECIPE NOTES AND HELPFUL TIPS
- Don’t over-mix the batter, as it may make the fritters tough.
- Don’t overcrowd the pan when frying so the donuts cook better, and the oil temperature is easier to maintain.
- Use a candy thermometer to track the temperature of the oil.
- A Dutch oven or heavy pot helps the oil hold its temperature.
- Try to maintain a constant temperature of 375 degrees. When you add the batter, the temperature will drop, so you must increase the heat a tad. Likewise, when you remove the fritters from the oil, the temperature will increase, so you need to turn the heat down a tad.
- Remove the fried fritters to paper towels to drain.
- Store the cooled cooked fritters wrapped loosely in paper towels in a brown paper bag.
