Apple Fritters

I had a few apples left in the bowl on the counter and I couldn't decide what to do with them. Randy came up with the idea to make apple fritters. I had to look up a recipe since I didn't have one in my cookbook. I found a very simple one on, I have found this is my new place to find my recipes. I had to sample one after they were done, it tasted really good. Randy has yet to have one but I am sure he will have a few for breakfast Sunday morning.
Apple Fritters
1 quart vegetable oil for deep frying
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup milk
2 eggs, beaten
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
3 cups apples- peeled, cored and chopped
Heat the oil in a deep fryer or electric skillet to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder and salt. Pou in the milk, eggs and oil and stir until well blended. Mix in apples until they are evenly distributed.
Drop spoonfuls of the batter into the hot oil and fry until golden on both sides, about 5 minutes depending on the size. Fry in smaller batches so they are not crowded. Remove from hot oil using a slotted spoon and drain briefly on paper towel.
