Sweet Cheddar and Apple Fritters - Goes terrific with a cup of coffee for a breakfast treat
Serves: 4
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp. cloves
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tbs. butter, melted
  • 1 apple, peeled and diced
  • 1 cup Kerrygold Skellig Sweet Cheddar Cheese, shredded
  1. In a large bowl mix together all the dry ingredients- flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.
  2. In a small bowl, beat the egg, milk, vanilla extract and melted butter together. Slowly add to the dry ingredients mixing well so there are few lumps.
  3. Add the diced apple and the cheese to the batter folding both ingredients in.
  4. In a medium pot (3Qt.) add about 2" of vegetable oil over medium heat.
  5. With a large spoon, table or soup sized, drop dollops of the batter into the oil. Don't overcrowd the pot! Work in batches. You may have to flip the fritters over to cook all sides evenly. When golden brown remove with a slotted spoon to a plate prepared with paper towels to drain the oil.
  6. Once cooled a bit, you could create a glaze of powdered sugar and milk to drizzle over the tops of the fritters or just roll them in fine sugar to coat.
  7. These are great with a cup of coffee or tea. And don't keep them too close, as you may just eat them all!
