For Frying:

1. Prepare the Apple Filling:

2. Prepare the Batter:

a. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.

3. Combine Batter and Apple Filling:

4. Fry the Apple Fritters:

b. Drop spoonfuls of the batter into the hot oil, making sure not to overcrowd the pan.

c. Fry the fritters for 2-3 minutes per side or until they are golden brown and cooked through.

d. Use a slotted spoon to remove the fritters from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to absorb excess oil.

5. Dust with Powdered Sugar:

a. Once the fritters are slightly cooled, dust them with powdered sugar.

6. Serve:

Enjoy these delicious apple fritters as a sweet treat for breakfast or dessert. The combination of the soft, cinnamon-spiced interior with the crispy, golden exterior is sure to be a hit!
