Baked Apple Fritters Recipe
"Apple Recipes Online"
1 envelope active
1/4 C. warm water (100-110° f.)
3/4 C. milk, scalded
1/4 C. margarine
1/4 C. sugar
1/2 t. salt
3 1/2 C. (about) flour
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
2 C. peeled, chopped apples
1 C. powdered sugar
2 T. hot water
Sprinkle yeast over warm water and set aside for 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine hot milk, margarine, sugar and salt in a large mixer bowl;
let stand until margarine melts. Beat in 1 cup flour. Add yeast mixture,
cinnamon and egg, beating until combined. If using a heavy-duty mixer, beat in
remaining flour to make a sticky dough. If using a hand mixer, stir in remaining
flour with a spoon.
Turn dough onto a floured board and knead 5 to 10 minutes, until soft and
elastic, adding additional flour if necessary. Place dough in a greased bowl and
turn to grease top. Cover and let rise about 1½ hours, until doubled in bulk; or
cover and let rise overnight in the refrigerator. Bring dough to room
temperature before continuing.
Punch down dough and divide into thirds. Shape one-third of dough into a flat
disc. Chop roughly with a sharp knife. Toss with one-third of the apples.
Arrange apples and dough in six mounds on a greased baking sheet. Repeat with
remaining dough and apples. Cover and let rise at room temperature until doubled
in bulk, about 1 hour.
Uncover and bake at 350 for about 15 minutes, or until golden. While still warm,
drizzle with glaze made by stirring together powdered sugar and water. When
cool, store in plastic bags.
