2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 medium apples, peeled and diced
Vegetable oil, for frying
Confectioners’ sugar, for dusting
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, and vanilla extract.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
Gently fold in the diced apples.
Heat about 2 inches of vegetable oil in a large saucepan or Dutch oven over medium-high heat until a deep-fry thermometer reads 375°F (190°C).
Drop spoonfuls of the fritter batter into the hot oil, being careful not to overcrowd the pan.
Cook the fritters for 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown.
Using a slotted spoon, transfer the fritters to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
Dust the fritters with confectioners’ sugar and serve while still warm.
