I grew up eating these apple fritters. They are shaped like a pancake and sprinkled in cinnamon-sugar. We always had this with dinner as a side dish. They are also easy to make for a crowd since you can fry them up in advance and then pop them into the oven just before dinner.

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.
