PostHeaderIcon Just Desserts: Fresh Apple Fritters

This is a family favorite recipe from the Stephenson's Farms Old Apple Farm Restaurant  recipe book.  An iconic landmark restaurant in Kansas City -- along side the apple & peach orchards (and strawberry farms) -- I'm sad to say closed shop in 2007.  The recipe booklet I have is from 1987 but was first published in 1967.  It has several favorites of mine that I will post here from time to time.

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 4 tablespoons margerine
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 orange, rind and juice
  • 1 cup apples (chopped fine)
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
Beat egg.  In a mixing bowl, combine the milk, egg, sugar and melted margerine.  Add the orange juice, rind and chopped apples (skins can be left on) and vanilla.  Sift together flour, salt, baking powder.  Stir into milk mixture with a spoon until blended.  Do not overmix.  Preheat oil in a skillet to 350°F.  Drop off end of tablespoon into hot oil.  Fry to a golden brown.  Turn so they brown even. [Remove from oil and let drain on a paper towel.]  Allow to cool.  Roll in powdered sugar.  Serve with salads or eat as dessert.
