Apple Cinnamon Fritters

Cinammon Sugar

1/2 cup sugar

2 tbsp. cinnamon

 

Fritters

1 cup buttermilk

2 eggs

2 cup flour

2 tsp baking powder

1 Tbsp cinnamon

½ cup brown sugar

½ tsp salt

2 green apples, unpeeled, finely diced

 

1. Whisk the cinnamon and sugar together in a small bowl and set aside.
2.Pour the butter milk into your blender and crack in the eggs. Pulse once or twice, just enough to combine thoroughly without needlessly aerating the works. Add the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, sugar and salt and blend until a smooth batter forms, scraping the sides once or twice with a rubber spatula. Rest the batter for 15 minutes giving the gluten strands formed with the flour a chance to relax and tenderize.

3. Pour a one-inch deep puddle of oil into a large skillet or deeper pot and heat over medium high heat until the oil is 375ºF. Carefully drop a heaping tablespoon of the batter into the skillet, repeating, turning and frying until the fritters are golden brown and delicious, 2 to 3 minutes. All the while, keep an eye on the oil temperature striving to keep it between 365ºF and 375ºF. Toss the fritters in the cinnamon sugar as they emerge from the hot oil. Serve and share as is, hot and delicious or if you like with cinnamon applesauce.
