A warm cup of coffee and an apple fritter make a pretty perfect combination for these crisp evenings we've been having lately. Luckily this is a very simple recipe for a delicious, comforting dessert that tastes like it is a whole lot more complicated to make than it is. It only takes a few minutes
the oil. Be careful not to overcrowd and watch carefully for the underside to turn golden brown, then gently flip over and continue frying until done. I cooked mine about 35 seconds per side, but they were the size of golf balls – adjust cooking times based on size of fritters and temperature of your oil, ideally around 365° F. It is always a good idea to test one to ensure it comes out like you are expecting.
