I learned of this fabulous, easy fruit fritter method from my friend Rene. After trying it out at home, she became my good friend Rene. Many thanks!

Directions

Step 1

Heat 1-inch vegetable oil on moderate to medium high heat. If you wish to test the oil, add a 1-inch cube of bread to hot oil. If it turns deep golden brown in color in a count of 40, the oil is ready.

Step 2

Core apples with an apple corer. Cut into 1/4-inch thick slices across, forming apple rings. Sprinkle sliced apples with the juice of a wedge of lemon to prevent browning.

Step 3

Mix together pancake mix and water, season with nutmeg. Place confectioners’ sugar in a sifter or a tea strainer. Place a piece of cardboard or brown paper sack on a work surface for draining fritters. Working in small batches of 5 to 6 slices, coat rings of apple in batter, and fry for 2 to 3 minutes, until evenly golden brown. Transfer to paper bag or towels to drain. When all the fritters are cooked, let oil cool before discarding.

Step 4

Top fritters with confectioners’ sugar and transfer to a serving platter.
