Big Apple Fritters


Apple bread is one of my favorite sweet breads around the world.

Yes, I'm bias towards banana & pumpkin loaves, too, but there's only something especial about sweet big apple bread that making my heart beat. Perphas because it reminds me of apple orchard I used to go to when I was a little girl. The applesauce and cinnamon scones were fragrant. Do you have any childhood memories that food evokes?

Once I got older, married, and had a few young children, I would take my kids to the same apple orchard.

My son, when he was three, would wipe the apple and take small bites from it before I could stop it. Fortunately, I knew the owner and she was always laughing. I was going to buy my apple and we'd go home to bake this bread. Happy memories ! 

* Ingredients :

° 3 cups all-purpose flour
° 1½ cups sugar
° 3 teaspoons baking powder
° Half a teaspoon of salt
° teaspoon apple pie spice
° 2 large eggs
° 1 cup milk
° 1 teaspoon vanilla
° 2 tablespoons soft butter
° 1½ cups peeled and sliced ​​apples
° frying oil
° confectioner's sugar

* Directions : 

Pour the oil into a deep skillet or Dutch oven to a depth of about 3 inches. Heated to 375 degrees. Sift the flour, sugar, salt, and apple pie spice into a large mixing bowl. Put the eggs in a separate bowl and beat them gently. Add milk and vanilla. Making a well in center of dried ingredients & cast in milk mixture. Adding butter and whisk with a mixer on low speed for most people, about half a minute.

Scrape sides of bowl and increase speed to medium for 2 minutes longer. Fold in the apple. Using a ½ cup measuring cup, drop it into the hot oil. Be careful not to spray the oil on yourself. If the pan is not too large at the top, you may be able to cook only one pancake at a time. When the pancakes are cooked, they will rise to the top. When browned on the first side, carefully flip it with a spoon

Build the second side. Drain on paper towels and sprinkle immediately, generously, with confectioners' sugar or glaze, I prefer the glaze. To making glaze sugar, milk OR water, beat joint also become warm.

Enjoy !
