No Beer Pairing Today
I can feel you guys peering into my soul right now. I swear I can feel it. I think it may have been about 6 months ago when I may have mentioned that I was giving up frying foods for a while. I even made Zach throw out the deep fryer because he forgets that after you USE the fryer, you have to CLEAN the fryer. When we began building our house, I think he may have even asked if we could build a deep fryer into the kitchen.
The answer, for obvious reasons, was immediately a big, fat “no.”
I half take back what I said. No, I didn’t go buy another deep fryer, but let’s be honest…I can’t give up frying foods forever. These glazed cinnamon apple fritters were enough to make me see the light again. I mean IT IS almost apple season after all, and fritters are right there at the top of my list of all time favorite apple dishes.
Oh sure, I could have gone down the apple pie route, but you guys know what a terrible pie baker I am. A cake would have been DEEEE-lightful, but who has that kind of time at the end of summer, with school beginning and all?!
These glazed cinnamon apple fritters are the perfect, quick, simple and delicious apple snack to curb those apple cravings. You know you have them. I certainly have them.
These glazed cinnamon apple fritters are my ode to apple season. Apple season is upon us and I can not get over all of the delicious varieties I’ve seen popping up literally all over the place! While I love all apples in their own way, my favorite for baking, cooking and frying has to be the Granny Smith apple. These fritters highlight this most perfect ingredient.
A simple fritter batter is made up of the essentials: flour, baking powder, sugar and warm spices. Mixed using your KitchenAid Stand Mixer with your typical combination of wet ingredients: eggs, milk, butter and vanilla extract, the perfect fritter batter is born. Diced Granny Smith apples are tossed with cinnamon and sugar and then folded into the fritter batter. Dropped in hot oil and browned to perfection, these cinnamon apple fritters are dipped in a simple glaze and then set aside to harden just slightly. Perfect with a glass of milk or a cup of coffee, these glazed cinnamon apple fritters are the true definition of autumn!
