Apple Fritters


Vegetable oil,
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon cardamon
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
2 large eggs
3/4 cup whole milk
2 tablespoons melted butter
2 teaspoons homemade vanilla extract
2 apples, cored and cut into small dice ( I use granny smiths )
Powdered sugar, for dusting


Heat 3 inches of  oil in  Dutch oven or deep fryer  until  thermometer inserted in the oil registers 340 degrees F.

In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, cardamon  and salt. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs with a fork, then add the milk, melted butter and vanilla. Gently fold the dry and wet ingredients together until just combined (don't over mix). Fold in the apples

Drop heaping tablespoons of batter into the hot oil, 6  at a time. ( Don't make them to thick or they will not cook all the way thru ) Fry until golden brown, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove and drain on paper towels. Dust with powdered sugar.
Cardamon is optional. These are still really good with out it,but the spice really puts them over the top.
