Apple Fritters for National Donut Day!

Last night as I was scrolling through my Facebook news feed I came across an ad for National Donut Day!  Did you know that we even have this?!  I didn't, but given any excuse to eat donuts I will do it with due diligence!  :)  So, I started looking at the few recipes I had pinned for GF donuts and couple of them didn't sound too hard or bad.  Then I remembered I had a recipe for my mom's apple fritters.  I got excited!  (Kinda like I am now!)  So I found it and decided that was what I was going to try, but make them GF so I could eat them too!  Hooray! 
This morning I was excited to hit the kitchen, but needed some coffee motivation first.  I drank some of my beloved coffee and then set out to make my fritters before we had to get out the door for my son's last T-ball game.  (We wake up very much way too early around here.)  From start to finish it took about 15-20 minutes to make and fry my fritters and they were delicious.  I ate way too many, but it was so worth it!  Try these and, what they heck, make your own donut day!

Mom's Apple Fritters

Heat oil to 350
Sift together:
1 cup flour (regular or I used Jeanie's GF all-purpose flour)
3-4 T sugar, depending how sweet you like them
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
In a separate bowl lightly whisk together:
2 eggs
1/3 cup milk
1 T melted butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
Pour liquid ingredients into dry and mix until incorporated.
Stir in 1 apple cut into small cubes.
I used a large cookie scoop (or ice cream scoop) and dropped into hot oil.  Fry for about 2-3 minutes a side or until golden brown and cooked all the way through.  You can make them smaller too if you wish.  Drain on paper towel and sprinkle with powdered sugar.  Devour!
