Zo and I had a bunch of apples from going to Apple Hill and we had to do something with them.  You can only have so many pies and dumplings before you have to branch out top something new. I was going to make Apple Beignets but decided I did not fill like rolling out the dough and cutting it.  So I went the lazy route of making fritters.  If you are looking for something a little different I highly suggest going with the optional aged white cheddar in the fritters.  It really gives the fritters a fun depth that compliments the sweetness perfectly. Enjoy!

3/4 cup apples (peeled, cored, chopped)
vegetable or peanut oil

1 cup cake flour
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 egg (beaten)
1/3 cup half and half
4 tsp sweet unsalted European butter (melted)
3 tbsp sour cream
1 tsp volcanic lemon juice
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
Confectioner's sugar (sprinkled over the top)
Optional (3 tbsp - 1/4 cup aged white cheddar)

Mix dry ingredients in a medium mixing bowl.  Mix wet in a separate mixing bowl.  Fold dry into wet ingredients until smooth and then fold in apples (and cheese if using).  

In a deep sauce pan heat oil over medium heat.  Once heated use a tablespoon to drop dollops into oil and cook 2-4 minutes or until golden on both sides. Remove fritters as they are done and place on a plate covered in paper towels to drain. Dust with confectioner's sugar and serve warm.
