• Vegetable oil for frying*
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup milk, minus 1 tablespoon
  • 1 tablespoon brandy
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1/2 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 to 4 apples, peeled, cored, sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
  • 2 egg whites

Preheat oil in Presto® Electric Deep Fryer. If using an adjustable thermostat deep fryer, set at 375°. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk milk, brandy, egg yolk, and melted butter in a second bowl. Gradually stir into dry ingredients until smooth. Set aside.

Mix cinnamon and sugar in a bowl. Sprinkle over both sides of apple slices, saving remainder to dust over finished fritters. Sprinkle slices lightly with nutmeg. Beat egg whites until stiff, but not dry, in a clean bowl. Fold into reserved batter.

Dip several apple slices into batter to coat evenly, letting excess drip off. Carefully place 1 to 2 slices at a time into hot oil. Fry fritters until golden brown, about 1 1/2 minutes each side. Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle both sides with reserved cinnamon and sugar mixture. Best served warm.
