Fritters are a fried food that, depending on the ingredients used, can be sweet or savory.
These sweet Hungarian fritters use apples sliced in rings, which are then dipped in a batter and fried.
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2/3 cups milk
Salad Oil for deep frying
3 large golden delicious apples
In medium bowl combine 1 cup flour, the granulated sugar and salt. In the small bowl whisk milk and egg, then gradually whisk into dry ingredients until smooth. Set aside.
In large bowl combine remaining 1/4 cup flour and 1/4 cup confectioner's sugar; set aside.
In heavy skillet, heat 1 inch oil to 375 degrees. Peel and core apples. Cut each apple into 6 equal round slices about 1/2 inch thick. Toss 3 apple slices in flour-sugar mixture, then in batter, shaking off excess. Fry 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, turning once, until golden. Drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining apples. Sprinkle with additional confectioner's sugar. Serve immediately. Makes 4 serving.
