Apple Barn Apple Fritters

A couple of weeks ago we made a trip to the mountains.  One of our favorite places to go is the Apple Barn.  Part of that reason is for these apple fritters, their fried chicken's not bad either. On that trip we bought some fresh apples to bring home and so I had to try the fritters.
These fritters use cake flour instead of plain flour.  I always wondered why they tasted so light.
Start with 1 egg
Add 1 cup milk
1/4 cup sugar
4 Tablespoons melted butter
The zest of one orange
Then the juice of the orange.  My orange was large so I didn't squeeze too hard.
Peel and chop one cup of apple.  The pieces don't need to be too big or too small, just right.
Add 1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
Then add 3 cups sifted cake flour.  I really need to get a bigger sifter.
Mix the batter well.
Heat the oil to 350 and drop by tablespoonful into the hot oil. They have to have something they use to drop the fritters with because theirs turned out into pretty round fritters.  Mine were not too pretty, but it doesn't matter because they taste good.
When the are golden brown on both sides remove and drain on a rack.  Those racks were the best thing I have bought in a while.
You can dust with powdered sugar.
