Hey, don't judge! I bet some of you don't even eat breakfast *wink wink*.
This post was inspired by my love of Tim Horton's apple fritters.
I rarely, and I mean rarely stop there anymore but when I do I always order one to go with my tea.
For me it goes hand in hand like PB & J or cheese on pizza.
It just melts in your mouth and with the soft apples kickin around inside it just makes my heart melt (or clog as the case may be).
Now I have to admit I didn't share these with tea, I made them for dessert the other night because, well, I wanted to.
Almost like a donut but not if that makes any sense.
It's super easy, super yummy, and if you eat too many its super bad for you :)
makes approx. 12
1/3 c. cornmeal
2 tbsp. vanilla sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt
2 large egg whites
2 tart cooking apples (I like chunks)
1 c. 1% milk
Vegetable oil for frying
1/3 c. vanilla sugar
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
In a bowl, stir together the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt. In a medium-sized bowl, combine egg whites, apple, and milk. Add to flour mixture all at once and stir just until combined.
In a large pot (safety first!), heat about and inch of oil over moderately high heat to 375F.
Drop batter by heaping tablespoons, about 4-5 per batch, into hot oil. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until golden, turning only once.
Use a slotted spoon to remove and place on paper towels to absorb some of the excess oil. In a Ziploc, combine the sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon. Add the hot fritters, several at a time, and shake to coat. Serve immediately!
