Apple Fritters

Recipe by: Clem
Serves: 6
Cooking: 15min
Preparation: 15min

1 liter vegetable oil for deep-frying
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon white sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup milk
2 eggs, beaten
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
3 cups apples – cored and sliced thinly

For the glaze:
2 cups confectioners' sugar
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 teasponn cinnamon
1 tablespoon milk

Heat the oil in a deep-fryer or electric skillet to 190 degrees C. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. 
Pour in the milk, eggs and oil and stir until well blended. Coat apple rings in batter. Drop apples coated in batter into the hot oil and fry until golden on both sides, about 5 minutes depending on the size. 
Fry in smaller batches so they are not crowded. Remove from the hot oil using a slotted spoon and drain briefly on paper towels.

For the glaze:
Mix the confectioners' sugar, butter, cinnamon and vanilla together.
Adding half the milk to start with, stir in to make a thick glaze, adding just a drop at a time more until you get a nice thick glaze. Spread or pour immediately over cooled apple fritters.
