These are okay - if you don't mind burnt apple pieces, etc., but there are various reasons I'll go back to my recipe. Fresh orange juice & orange rind are, IMHO, what makes taking the time for apple fritters worthwhile (my recipe below). Fruit fritters should be sweet. Various approaches to 'sweetness' work, but IMHO, using way less sugar on the inside, but plenty of powdered sugar on the outside is ideal, that said, IMHO this is too little sugar. IMHO, this recipe wastes baking powder w/no good impact(fritters should be plenty dense though still light in my book), all that salt isn't needed - no one misses it in mine - not even me, and I'm often given salt shakers as gifts......., All that egg is unnecessary as well. Intrigued by one reviewers using applesauce for oil - which would be less butter in my recipe, but haven't tried it yet//Here's my recipe: 3 C flour (whole wheat works very well if ground well), 2 t baking powder, 1/2 t salt, 1/2 C sugar, 1/2 C sugar (raw sugar is a great compliment to whole wheat if that's what you use), Add: 1/4 C melted butter, 1 egg, 1 C milk, 1 t vanilla, juice&rind of 1 orange, 1 C apple chopped. Fry as for fritters. Drain. Dust with powdered sugar.
