|Sooo good sprinkled with powdered sugar and a bit of cinnamon|
Amish Apple Fritters
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 cup milk
1 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 to 3 cups sliced apples
Cream together sugar and eggs, add flour and baking powder, then milk. Mix and add lemon juice and apples. Drop by teaspoonfuls into hot shortening or make into little cakes and fry in a pan like pancakes. Sprinkle powdered sugar and cinnamon over them when finished frying.
I most often use self rising flour, which simplifies the recipe, taking less time, etc. You simply omit the baking powder and salt.
This is an easy recipe and a very, very good one ... (one where you don't have to run all over the state to buy the ingredients), great with our morning coffee, perhaps not the best thing in the world, health authorities will tell you, to start off the day, but I can guarantee it will start your day off with a warm and comfortable feeling ... isn't that in itself laying a foundation for good health?
I am a mere great grandma ... what the heck am I doing, pretending I know the slightest thing about what is and is not good for your health! This I do know, a warm apple fritter for breakfast sure gets you off to a good start, ready to take on what the rest of the day sends your way!
