  • 2 cups - all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cups - granulated sugar
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons - baking powder
  • 1 teaspoons - salt
  • 1/2 teaspoons - baking soda
  • 1 teaspoons - ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoons - ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoons - ground cloves
  • 1 - medium Honeycrisp apple, cored and finely chopped
  • 1 - medium Granny Smith apple, cored and finely chopped
  • 2 - eggs
  • 3/4 cups - apple cider
  • 2 tablespoons - butter, melted
  • - vegetable oil for deep-fat frying
  • Orange Glaze
  • 3 cups - powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoons - vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoons - orange zest
  • 1/4 cups - orange juice, plus more as needed for consistency
  • Directions:

    For orange glaze: In a bowl combine powdered sugar, vanilla, and orange zest. Stir in orange juice until smooth, stirring in additional orange juice one teaspoon at a time until icing reaches glazing consistency. Set aside.

    For fritters:
    Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves in a bowl. Add apples; toss to coat.

    In another bowl, lightly beat eggs. Stir in cider and melted butter. Add to flour mixture, stirring just until combined.

    Fill a 10-inch cast-iron skillet with 1 inch oil. Heat to 365 degrees F. Carefully drop in an elongated shape a heaping 1/4 cup batter per fritter into hot oil. Fry 2 or 3 fritters at a time for 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown, turning once.

    Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. (Keep fritters warm in a 200 degree F oven). Repeat with remaining batter, letting oil return to temperature as needed. Remove hot fritters from oven.

    Cool fritters slightly. Using tongs, dip fritters into orange glaze to coat. Transfer to wire racks; let glaze set. Serve warm.
