Apple fritters - by request

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup milk
4 large apples, peeled and cored
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar for dusting

DIRECTIONS
In a medium bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg and salt. In a separate bowl, beat together eggs and milk. Stir milk mixture into flour mixture until smooth. Heat oil to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) in a deep fryer or heavy bottomed deep pot or skillet. Slice apples into 1/2 inch rings. Dip apple slices in batter and fry, a few at a time, turning once, until golden. Drain on paper towels and dust with confectioners' sugar.

(DISCLAIMERS: I just put a couple inches of oil in my frying pan or wok, put it on medium high heat, and have at it, flipping the fritters when they are brown. I have never used the nutmeg called for in the recipe, but I think next time I will try adding some cinnamon to give it some kick. Finally, we make half this recipe, and even then it's a ton for our family of 4. The fritters get soggy if they sit around for a while so don't think you'll make a ton and stockpile them - they really are best eaten hot and fresh.)

Have you been to the superstore lately? The fall stuff for Mal's age is super cute! Not so much for big kids like mine.

TFS! Will have to try these on Satruday after our romp to the orchard! Any recommendations for what kind of apples?
