- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoons powdered cinnamon
- 1/3 cup milk
- 2 eggs
- 2 large Pink Lady apples
- Neutral High Heat oil for frying
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Make a well in the center and add 1/3 cup milk, eggs, and applesauce. Stir just to combine. Fold in apples.
Heat 1 1/2 inches of oil in a heavy skillet, Dutch oven, or deep fryer to 350 degrees. Drop about 1/4 cup of batter per fritter into hot oil; spread it out as you drop. Cook each side until golden brown; approximately 2 minutes per side. Place on a wire rack to drain.
Whisk together 1/4 cup milk, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Drizzle each fritter with the glaze turning over to make sure both sides are coated. Place on wire racks to air dry and drip.
Serve at once.
