Combine the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder, and whisk until combined.
In a small bowl whisk the milk and egg until combined, add into dry ingredients and mix until just incorporated.
Toss the apple chunks with the cinnamon & sugar and dump the mixture into the batter, stir just a bit to move apples around.
Heat oil to 370 degrees.
Fry heaping spoonfuls (or use cookie scoop) of the batter (being sure you get apples in each scoop)until golden brown (about 2-3 minutes),
If frying in a sealed fryer, shake basked around just a bit during frying to ensure even rotation of cooking. If cooking in an open frying pan, flip fritters to ensure even cook.
Once fritters are removed from fryer, place them on a cooling rack with paper towels under to catch any drips. If rolling in cinnamon & sugar, do so as soon as you can handle the fritters. If sprinkling with powdered sugar or dipping them in a simple glaze, allow them to cool a bit more.
To make glaze simply combine 1½ cups powdered sugar, a splash of vanilla and 1-1½ TBS milk. Stir until smooth and drizzle over fritters or go ahead and dunk them in. If dunking them in, allow them to set for a few minutes and enjoy…they don’t really “keep” that way. Fritters are best enjoyed soon after you make them while still warm. For best results fry in batches of 3 or four. I use a small cookie scoop to make dropping the batter into the oil nice and easy.
