Yes, you do need deep fried sweet apple dough in your life. And yes it should be covered in powdered sugar, why not? This was my first time making apple fritters. My son spotted some in Target, and I said no, but later gave in and made them at home. They are really easy to do. Just whip up the batter, and fry it until browned.

Apple Fritters Recipe
2 cups self-rising flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup apple cider
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 1/2 cups tart apples, peeled, cored and diced in small chunks ( I used Granny Smith)
1. Preheat deep fryer or vegetable oil in large frying pan to 350 degrees. If using a frying pan, make the oil about 1 1/2 inches deep.
2. Combine self rising flour, sugar, eggs, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla extract apple cider, milk and melted butter in a large bowl. Whisk well. Add apples and fold in. Spoon batter by the teaspoon in hot oil. Cook over medium heat, turning once. Fritters only take about 1 minute per side to cook. Remove from oil when done and drain on clean kitchen towel or paper towel.
3. Dust powdered sugar on fritters and serve warm.
