APPLE FRITTERS
Ingredients:

Vegetable oil (for frying) 1/4 cup sugar

2 tablespoons sugar 2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 cup flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/3 cup milk

1 egg, slightly beaten

1 cup apples, chopped

1 tablespoon butter, melted

Topping:

1/4 cup sugar

2 teaspoons cinnamon

Directions

Heat oil (about 1 inch deep) to 375 degrees. Meanwhile, in medium bowl, mix together sugar, flour, salt, and baking powder. Combine milk and egg; add to dry ingredients. Stir until well mixed. Add apples and butter, stirring until well blended. Drop teaspoonfuls of dough into hot oil; fry about 30 seconds on each side, until golden brown. Drain on paper towel. While fritters are warm, toss them in mixture of sugar and cinnamon.

Hint: Drop dough into center of fryer; fritters will drift to the side and turn over when starting to turn golden. Do not puncture them while in fryer. Use slotted spoon to remove fritters.
