Apple fritters

IMG_9408

Apple fritters were the last thing in my mind until I saw these in Vaishali’s blog. I wanted to try a batch immediately, but as it always happens, procrastination somehow found its way in.

When I did try, I knew I didn’t want to try the round and sliced apple fritters. I could almost see the fritters ending up with two separate layers : one would be the apple and the other would be the batter. Trust me, it’s happened before. So I tried one that seemed more appropriate for my modest deep-frying skills.

These fritters got over fast, but I found them lacking in sweetness. Since I skipped sprinkling with confectioners sugar or rolling in the cinnamon sugar part, I should have increased the sugar to at least 1/4 cup. So in case you have tart apples and want to use them up this way, adjust the sugar according to your taste preference.
