How To Make Warm Apple Fritters

If you’re yearning for the indulgence of a classic southern dessert, try your hand at warm apple fritters. This fried dessert is similar to a donut, but with a cake-like texture chock full of apples. To make the fritters, sift the dry ingredients to remove any clumps then combine the wet ingredients and blend the dough together by hand. Add as many apples as you please to intensify the apple flavor or make it more subtle. Be careful when deep frying the fritter. Spitting hot oil can quickly burn skin, so drop the batter into the oil in close proximity to avoid a splash. The fritters will cook quickly, so turn them frequently to get an even golden brown color all over. When the fritters are ready, use a slotted spoon or fryer basket to remove them from the oil. Place them on paper towels to drain the excess oil. When the oil has drained, cover the fritters in powdered sugar and serve warm. In this video, Chef Susie will show you how to make warm apple fritters. For more great cooking demonstration videos, subscribe to the LearnToCookOnline YouTube channel.
