1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk
1 cup finely chopped or grated unpeeled, cored apple
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon grated orange peel
3 tablespoons orange juice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking soda
Lard, for frying
Sifted powdered sugar
In a mixing bowl, combine egg, milk, apple, sugar, salt, orange peel, juice and vanilla.
In another bowl, stir together flour and baking soda; fold into egg mixture, stirring just until all flour is moistened.
Drop batter by rounded tablespoons into hot (350°) lard and fry until deep golden-brown, about 3 to 6 minutes, turning once.
Drain fritters thoroughly on a paper towel. Sprinkle powdered sugar over the tops, or drizzle with powdered sugar icing. Yields about 40 fritters.
