1 cup whole wheat flour
1 3/4 cup apple (approx. two apples, peeled and diced)
1 1/2 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
zest of 1 medium lemon
1 teaspoon baking soda (1/2 teaspoon ENO fruit salt works even better!)
a pinch of salt
powdered sugar or a half and half mixture of sugar and cinnamon powder to toss the fritters in.
In a mixing bowl mix all the dry ingredients together. Set aside.
In another bowl whisk sugar and egg together. Once incorporated add milk. Mix well.
In small portions add dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Stir in apples. Mix until its all incorporated properly. Let it sit for 10 minutes.
Heat oil in a deep fryer or wok to a temperature of 350 deg. F.
Using a spoon or a small cookie scoop, pick approx. 1 tablespoon portion of batter and drop in hot oil. Fry until the fritter is brown and light.
Take it out of the oil and into a dish line with paper towel to drain excess oil.
Serve hot. For extra flavor sprinkle powdered sugar on to or toss in a mixture of cinnamon sugar coating a thin layer outside of the fritter. Enjoy!
