3 T. Sugar
1 T. Butter
1/2 t. Vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
Dash of cinnamon and nutmeg, to taste
1 cup finely chopped apples

Oil for frying

Small Batch
1 tsp yeast
1/4 cup warm milk
2 Tbls. Sugar
2 tsp butter
1/2 egg (about 2 T)
1/4 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup flour
1/4 t. Salt
Dash cinnamon and nutmeg
1/2 cup finely-chopped apples

Instructions

Mix warm milk, sugar, and yeast. Let set to see if yeast proofs (about 5 min.)
Mix flour and spices. Mix butter in flour mixture.
Mix yeast mixture with flour/butter mixture. Add vanilla and egg. Stir.

Cover, let rise about an hour.

Add chopped apples.

Heat oil to 375. Drop batter by spoonfuls. Fry until light brown. Roll in cinnamon sugar, then sprinkle with confectioners sugar. (In fritters below, I used a milk/conf. glaze instead of the cinn. sugar/conf. sugar. For an even richer glaze/icing, use small amount of conf. Sugar, butter and a little milk)

Small makes 6-10, depending on size. Regular batch makes twice that amount.
