Glazed Apple Fritters

There are some dessert recipes we never tire of, it doesn't matter how many times we try them we keep going back to them again and again. For my youngest son, "Glazed Apple Fritters," or glazed apple donuts are the one recipe that keeps him coming back for more. Apple fritters are a great recipe to make and a very affordable treat as well. A fritter, is basically anything that is coated in a bread batter and fried up. There are many different kinds of fritter, like the apple fritter, of course, there are also corn fritters, pineapple fritters, pea fritters, and potato fritters. Sometimes fritters can even have meat like spam or some fish in them. In Burmese culture, fritters are called a-kyaw, which has gourd, chickpea batter, potatoes, green leafy vegetables, and tofu. So theirs would be more of a savoury fritter. There are also similar types of fritters in China, Malaysia, and Indonesia. In Japan, there is tempura, which is made with a crispy batter of panko bread crumbs over cooked vegetables like sweet potato, squash and yam.

These sweet apple fritters look super delicious! They are really not to difficult to make either. This glazed apple fritters recipe, was inspired by the creator trying her friends apple fritter when she was in her third trimester of pregnancy, her friend warmed the apple fritter making it smell and taste even better. That apple fritter recipe stuck with her, and when she finally got the chance to recreate it herself, it brought back some fond memories. Apple fritters taste best when they are fresh, but can always be popped into the microwave or oven if you need to soften them up. To start out, you will want to prepare your yeast, in a large measuring cup or bowl you will combine some warm milk and sugar, then sprinkle the yeast over top and let sit in a warm place for about 20 minutes or until it becomes foamy. The dough then has bite size pieces of apple added throughout it, and is then formed into the dough balls and then deep fried, or fried in a pan of hot oil. The glaze is also super easy to whip up, and then just pour over top of the finished fried dough.
