I have just made a batch of these delectable fritters. They are amazing piping hot, and they did not last long in my house. My mother and sister insisted on take home containers. The batter is so crisp and the apples inside still retain their integrity and structure, and the tartness of the apples is countered by the sweetness of the dredging in sugar. My four year old daughter and two year old neice both commented that they looked like doughnuts, so they were also more than happy to try one!
