Serving Size: 18 Prep Time: 15 mins Total Time: 30 mins
1 cup apple cider
½ cup grated, peeled apple
¼ cup + 2 Tbsp. granulated sugar, divided
1 large egg
1 tsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp + 1 tsp. ground cinnamon, divided
½ tsp vanilla extract
2 cup all purpose flour
2 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 cup canola oil, for frying
Heat apple cider over high heat until it has reduced to 1/2 cup; then allow to cool slightly.
In a bowl, combine the grated apple, 2 tbsp. sugar, egg, lemon juice, 1 tsp. cinnamon, vanilla, and apple cider. Mix well.
Add the flour, baking powder and salt to the apple mixture. Mix well.
Combine 1/4 cup sugar and 1 tbsp. sugar in a small bowl; set aside.
Heat oil until it reaches 375 degrees. (If you are using a pot on the stove versus a fryer, make sure you can submerge the fritters in the oil).
Slowly drop a heaping tablespoon of the batter into the hot oil and allow the fritter to fry for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. You will have to do this in batches depending on the size of your fryer/pot.
Remove the fritters and drain on paper towels to remove excess oil; then coat in the cinnamon and sugar mixture. Best when eaten warm.
