I have made regular ole glazed doughnuts, which turned out wonderfully. Honestly, there is nothing like eating a doughnut that is still warm. Making yeast doughnuts are not something you can whip-up on a whim however, you need to wait for them to raise before you can fry them. All the waiting is well worth it, I promise.
The other weekend we were low on grocery supplies, and I was craving something doughnutty. I still have a small surplus of apples from my great grandma’s tree that needed to be used. Like a light bulb going off in my head it came to me, APPLE FRITTERS!
This fall at the farmer’s market I had an apple fritter that was as large as my head. It was a perfect combination of crispy outside and soft inside. It was delicious. I have never had homemade apple fritters before and wondered how difficult it would be to make at home. I found my recipe at the appropriately named The Picky Apple blog, after searching for a recipe that included chopped apples, not fried apple rings. I did try to make an apple fritter as big as my head, like the ones at the farmer’s market. I failed miserably. The outside was super crunchy (which I like), but the inside was not cooked. I did not have enough oil to adequately fill my dutch oven to fry such a giant fritter. I settled with doughnut hole size fritters, and enjoyed the applely deliciousness. These are so easy to make. You must try this recipe!
Head on over to The Picky Apple get the recipe. ENJOY (I know I did)!
