Made a few slight changes when making these, but nothing big ~ I used Fuji apples (love the taste of 'em), dark raising without the rum, & only dipped the finished fritters in the sugar so that about half of each was powdered! Like I said, nothing big! However, the taste of these WAS BIG, ABSOLUTELY GREAT! These will certainly be made again & again in my kitchen! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe!
