Amish Apple Fritter Recipe

*Ingredients :

+For pancakes:
°2 tablespoons granulated sugar
°2 large eggs
°1 cup all-purpose flour
°2 tsp. Baking powder
°½ tsp. cinnamon
°½ tsp. salt
°Half a cup of milk
°2 tsp. Fresh lemon juice
°2-3 cups Granny Smith or Grainstein apples, peeled, seeded, and chopped (firm pie apples!)
Vegetable oil for deep frying (about 4-5 cups - enough to put in the middle of the sides of a frying pan or skillet)
+For glazing:
°1¼ cups powdered sugar
°¼ tsp. vanilla
°3-4 teaspoons water warm (thin enough to making glaze "paintable")

* Directions : 

In a large bowl (or bowl in a stand mixer), beat sugar and eggs for 1-2 minutes using a stand mixer.
To this add flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and milk. Mix these ingredients well.
In a separate bowl, mix the chopped apple with lemon juice. Using a spoon, add the apple mixture to the mixture and stir well until combined.
Heat vegetable oil to 375 degrees (use a deep frying thermometer or use an electric fryer with temperature control). It is very important to make sure that the temperature is hot enough to properly fry the pancakes.
Once the oil reaches 375 degrees, scoop out very tablespoons of pancake mixture (as much as you can get!) and carefully and gently dab into the hot oil.
When they reach true golden brown, carefully flip the pancakes to the other side (I used two spoons to flip them carefully) and continue to cook. 
When the pancakes are brown on both sides (you may have to turn them over again to make sure both sides are brown), you know they will be ready and fully cooked.
Using a slotted spoon, remove patties, one at a time, onto a plate lined with paper towels (several thicknesses) to drain and cool.
To make a shiny glaze for the top of the pancakes, mix the powdered sugar, vanilla, and water together in a small bowl until you have a nice glaze.
Using a pastry brush, brush this glaze over the entire top of the foam. Let the glaze harden a little, flip it over and "grease" the glaze on the bottom. Place the glazed pancakes on a wire rack; Let the glaze harden, then serve.

Enjoy !
