Apple Fritters

Stephenson’s Apple Fritters

This time of the year screams Apple Fritters to me. One of my favorite items from Stephenson’s apple farm here in the Kansas City area was their apple fritters. I looked for them in their cookbook, but the nearest I could find was their fresh peach fritters, so I’ll make the proper alterations in the recipe for apple fritters.

Apple Fritters
1 cup unsifted flour
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon each ginger, nutmeg and allspice
1 egg
1/3 cup canned pumpkin
2 tablespoons each of milk, melted butter, and molasses
1/3 cup diced apples
Powdered sugar

Mix dry ingredients. Stir in rest of ingredients except apples and powdered sugar, just until smooth. Fold in apples. Drop from a teaspoon* into deep hot fat and fry at 350 degrees about 2 minutes, or until crisp and brown. Drain on paper towels. Roll in powdered sugar. Serve immediately.
Makes 18
*Dip spoon into the hot fat between fritters. This makes the batter slip easily off the spoon.

2 eggs
1 3/4 cups sugar
2 heaping teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 cup oil
6 medium Gala or Fuji or Honey Crisp apples
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, mix the eggs, sugar, cinnamon and oil. Peel and slice the apples and add to mixture in bowl (coating as you go to keep apples from turning brown.) Mix together the baking soda and flour and add to the ingredients in the bowl. Mix well (best with a fork) until all of the flour is absorbed by the wet ingredients. Pour mixture into a greased one 9×13 or two 9″ round pans. Bake for approximately 55 minutes.
