It’s hard to beat the flavor that dessert from home-grown fruit delivers.
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
2/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1 teaspoon brandy
Dash of cinnamon
4 tart apples such as Haralson cut in ½-inch thick slices (see note)
Sift dry ingredients. Beat eggs until fluffy. Add milk, oil, brandy and cinnamon to the eggs. Add flour and stir only enough to dampen it. Heat oil in a deep skillet to 370 degrees. Peel and core the apples using an apple corer. Slice ¼- to ½-inch thick. Dip pieces of apples in batter. Lift out with a fork. Lower carefully into the oil, and fry until delicately brown (about 3 to 5 minutes). Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar.
Note: You can substitute any tart apple such as Granny Smith.
