Southington Apple Fritters

6 Cortland Apples

2 Tbs. Sugar

2 2/3 Cup Flour

1 1/2 Cup Milk

1/4 Cup Cinnamon Sugar

2 Eggs

1/2 tsp. Salt

4 tsp. Baking Powder

Crisco (for deep frying)


Peel and core apples; cut each apple into 8 parts. Mix eggs, sugar, salt, flour, baking powder, and milk to the consistency of thick pancake batter. In a deep fryer or cast iron fry pan, heat enough shortening for frying (about 2" deep). Dip apples into batter until well coated, and fry to a golden brown. Fry only a few at a time so that the oil stays hot. Drain on paper towels. Drop into a paper bag filled with cinnamon sugar to coat.

Makes 48 fritters
