good and easy
Oh Karen, these were wonderful! I used to have them all the time while my sister and I were growing up. I used Splenda Sugar Substitute and we sprinkled them with confectioner's sugar, Thanks for the memories, Diane :)
These were fun and different. I made a half recipe on a night my DH and DS were not home, for just DD and myself. She just loves anything apple, so of course she just loved these. I did put a lot more oil in my pan than suggested...basically made sure that I had about 1/4 inch of hot oil in the pan. I only baked them in the oven for 20 minutes, and they seemed quite soft and done.
I didn't want to rate, as I had trouble with this, and it may be just me. When I flipped them over to brown on the second side, the coating would slide right off! I used Granny Smith apples and probably should have used Mac's or something like that, as the G.S. were a bit tart for this. I probably wouldn't do again, just bcz of the browning and my ineptability (but I'm sure it wouldn't be a problem for others.) Made for 123 Tag.
I made these for Sunday breakfast using Splenda and 1% milk to make them a bit healthier. Great breakfast treat.
Loved it.. never had apple fritters before and so this was a very pleasant surprise! Made a minor change though - I used 1 egg instead of 2. I sprinkled some more of the cinnamon-sugar icing after taking them out of the oven and served them with caramel fudge and vanilla ice cream for dessert!! Next time I shall try with bramley or granny smith apples. Thank you, Karen, for sharing your lovely recipe.
Wonderful, wonderful! Don't every recall having eaten apple fritters, but after making this recipe, they'll definitely be on my dinner table time & again! Great tasting & a very nice addition to any menu! I look forward to trying a variety of apples in the future! Many thanks!
