Apple Fritters are the kind of treat that you make after a family outing when every one is hungry for something that fills their tummies and tastes just yummy. You want it delicious, but not too junky or sweet. The fritter, and this particular rendition of the Apple Fritter, fits the bill to perfection. So when you come home in late January from an outside skating rink chilled to the bone, and hot chocolate is in the offing, treat your family to this recipe for Apple Fritters. Or, in the summer time, when every one is sun kissed and tired from the water and the heat of the day, serve them up some Apple Fritters with fresh squeezed lemonade. The trick to these bready, slightly sweet, deliciously crunchy treats is to serve them warm and fresh, almost right from the oil, while they are still very warm to the touch. Once the Apple Fritters have drained and cooled just a bit, let every one dip their own in dips and sauces that are quick and easy to make. For example, you can create dry mixes such as cinnamon sugar or even just plain icing sugar, or create light glazes that are made from lemon and icing sugar or just a bit of cream blended with icing sugar. You can think of endless ways to prepare toppings for these Apple Fritters, and get some help from the family, too. Each of them can think up a simple topping, sauce, or spread, and perhaps even make it up for every one else to try.
Fritters seem to be a food found in almost every culture. They are, broadly, a bready creation, often stuffed with some thing. They can be stuffed with meat, vegetables, fruits and/or cheese, to mention only a few options. The possibilities seem endless, and I am always surprised at some new fritter filling or method of preparation. But that is beauty of the fritter, its versatility. What all fritters seem to share, right across various cultures, is that the are deep fried. And perhaps that is the appeal. There is some thing about the flavor of a quick bread (or yeast bread) deep fried and served up golden brown that is limitlessly appealing, crosses cultural divides, and all genders and ages. Simply put, every body loves deep fried food, no matter who you are, or where you live.
These apple fritters do take a bit of skill in mastering how thick or thin the batter should be, or when the temperature is right for deep frying these apple fritters to perfection. But do not be intimidated by these challenges. The only way to learn to cook or bake is, well, to cook and bake. And even if you think you might go wrong some where along the way, believe that you will have plenty of family members willing to test taste your product and help you to improve (so let them peel and prepare the apples for this rendition of fritters!). Try these apple fritters when you have time and energy to spend on them. Thanks to the Mrs.Happy Homemaker for this wonderful apple fritter recipe. Enjoy.
