Kids of all ages will enjoy an afternoon snack of apple fritters and ice cold milk.


  • 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.
