Fritter:

2 cups flour

1/2 cup sugar

1 1/2 tsp salt

3 tsp. baking powder

2 tsp. cinnamon

zest from 1 orange

2/3 cup half and half

2 eggs

3 cups apples, peeled and diced small

Glaze:

4 cups powdered sugar

3-4 tablespoons fresh orange juice

zest from 1 orange

Heat oil to 375 degrees.

Combine the dry ingredients for the fritter with the orange zest and whisk until well combined. Whisk the eggs and half and half together and stir into dry ingredients. Fold in diced apple.  Using a small ice cream scoop carefully place in hot oil and fry until cooked through and golden. Remove and drain on paper towels. Meanwhile combine all the glaze ingredients adding just enough orange juice to create the correct consistency for dipping, mix well until well combined. With each fritter place into glaze and shake off excess. Place on wire rack set into baking sheet to catch the excess glaze. Allow the glaze to hardened and enjoy.

  1. Ah ha–here they are. Thanks. Are these pretty much the same as what is usually found in most bakeries? (plus a hint of orange) I think I gained five (10?) pounds just scrolling through to find these. You bake A LOT! And you do beautiful work:-)
