2 cups all purpose flour
pinch of salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 1/4 cups buttermilk
2 eggs, separated
1 1/2 cups finely diced tart apples
Vegetable Oil for Frying
Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Set aside
In a small bowl mix together buttermilk and egg yolks and add to flour mixture. Stir just until mixed thoroughly.
Beat egg whites until stiff.
Fold beaten egg whites gently into batter.
Fold in finely diced apples.
Heat oil in heavy pan then drop batter by a tablespoon into hot oil. Cook one side until golden brown then flip over and cook backside until golden.
Remove hot fritters and allow to drain on rack with paper towels beneath.
Now mix powdered sugar and apple juice in a small bowl until it is the consistency of thin icing.
Now dip warm fritter in icing flipping to coat both sides.
Return iced fritter to rack for any excess icing to drain and icing to set.
One very large wooden spoon to guard your fritters from marauding family members long enough to take pictures.
I hid some to enjoy with my morning coffee : )
