Northern spy apple fritters

Yield: 15 Servings

Measure Ingredient
¾ cup Yellow cornmeal
½ cup All-purpose flour
2 tablespoons Baking powder
6 tablespoons Sugar
1 pinch Of salt
1 Egg
½ cup Milk
1½ cup Vegetable oil for frying
1 Northern Spy apple, peeled, cored and chopped
2 tablespoons Vegetable oil
Confectioner's sugar for garnish

Combine all dry ingredients (except for confectioners sugar). Add liquid ingredients (except for 1½ cups of oil) one at a time, stirring between additions. Mix in apple. Let batter sit for 10 minutes. In a 1-quart saucepan over medium high-heat, heat the oil until it crackles, not quite to the smoking point. Take precautionary measures for using hot oil! Drop batter into the oil 1 tbls. at a time (get close so the oil doesn't splash). Fry only 2 or 3 fritters at a time. Don't crowd the pan. Flip the fritters over and remove onto a paper towel when golden brown. Sprinkle with confectioners sugar and serve.

Makes 15 to 18 fritters.
