Sweet Cravings

About two months ago, I had a craving for apple fritters. Now, this was no ordinary craving; it lasted for a week and a half! I finally broke down and found a recipe that modified nicely into gluten free.

Oddly enough, yesterday I was struck with the same apple fritter mega-craving again. I decided to not wait a week and a half this time before indulging, so I made up a batch this afternoon. They are extremely tasty and pretty easy to make, too. Here's my recipe:

Apple Fritters

1 cup gf baking mix (I use Bette Hagman's Gourment Blend)
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/3 cup milk
1 egg
1 medium apple, finely chopped
Cooking oil
1/2 cup powdered sugar

Sift together the first 4 ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. Add milk and egg; beat with an electric mixer until batter is smooth. Fold in the apple. Drop by teaspoonfuls into hot oil at approximately 370 degrees and at least 2 inches deep. Fry until golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes. Drain on paper towels on a cooling rack and then roll in the powdered sugar. Serve warm.

I made them a little bit too big this time, I think. But, that doesn't affect the taste!
