Apple Fritters

1½ cup flour
½ cup sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. table salt
2 tsp. powdered cinnamon
1 cup milk (or almond milk)
2 eggs
2 tbsp. Olive oil
2 cups chopped and peeled apples Oil for frying
Cinnamon sugar
¾ cup granulated sugar
1 tbsp. powdered cinnamon
1 tsp. powdered allspice (optional)


Fill a deep, heavy-duty pot with about 3 inches of vegetable oil. Begin heating oil on low. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices. In a separate bowl, mix the milk, eggs, margarine, and vanilla until well blended. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, add the apples, and mix it all together. Prepare a paper towel lined plate or baking sheet next to the frying pot. Mix together the cinnamon sugar ingredients to roll the fritters in and set aside. Using a spoon or a cookie scoop, carefully drop tablespoon amounts of batter into the hot oil. Fry the fritters for 3 minutes, turning occasionally, or until brown all over. Transfer cooked fritters to the towel lined plate. Roll the finished fritters in the cinnamon sugar and put them on the cooling rack.
