“Sweet fried dough is the perfect way to use up the rest of those summer peaches.” – David Venable
1 cup flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1/3 cup milk
1 Tbsp. melted butter or vegetable oil
1-1/4 cups diced peaches sprinkled with a touch of cinnamon
Granulated sugar in flat – sided bowl
Oil for fryer or deep – frying pan
With a wire whip, combine flour, salt, and baking powder. Whisk in eggs, milk, and butter. Fold in peaches. Heat oil in fryer or pan to 375°F. With long – handled ladle, ladle about 1/4 – 1/2 cup of batter into the hot oil. The batter will sink at first and then rise. Cook for about 2 – 3 minutes, depending on size of the fritters. Remove the fritters from the oil with long – handled tongs. Quickly drain on paper towels or newspaper. Place fritters in a bowl of sugar or sprinkle generously with powdered sugar. Coat both sides. Place on serving plate. Serve warm.
Note: You can substitute apples for peaches in this recipe.
