Apple Fritters

Satisfy your sweet-tooth with this healthy snack!

Apple Filling
4 red apples
2 Tbsp sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
juice of one half lemon
 
Peel and core the apples and slice each into 8 pieces.  Place in a bowl and sprinkle with lemon juice, sugar and cinnamon and set aside.
 
Batter
1 cup all purpose flour
pinch salt
half tsp baking powder
1 Tbsp sugar
1 cup milk
2 eggs, separated
 
vegetable oil for frying
 
Combine all the dry ingredients (except the salt) in a large mixing bowl and set aside.  In a small bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, salt and milk and set aside.  Whisk the egg whites to soft peaks.  Pour the milk mixture into the dry ingredients and stir until thoroughly combined.  Gently fold in one third of the whipped egg whites into the batter, repeat until all the whites have been added.
 
Fill a sauté pan or pot with vegetable oil so that the oil is 3" deep.  Strain the apples of any juice that has accumulated.  Heat the oil to 375F.  Dip each apple slice into the batter and using a slotted spoon, gently place the fritter into the hot oil, fry until golden brown, remove from the oil and drain on paper towels.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve while warm.

Yields approx 24 fritters
