apple fritters with caramel sauce

Most days we eat a normal breakfast of cereal or toast.  But on weekends, I like to treat Cookie Bandit to something fun and special.  That's when I bust out the waffle iron or the muffin tin and try out all of those wonderful recipes I keep seeing online.  Recently, I found this one and boy was it a winner!

These apple fritters are incredibly easy to make.  I modified the recipe a bit by adding more cinnamon and some nutmeg, but no matter how you do it, it's sure to be a winner.  You just peel, core, and grate the apples; mix them with a bit of flour, milk, eggs, and spices; and then cook them like a pancake!

The best part about this recipe, though, has to be the caramel sauce that goes on top.  Oh my word.  I could just eat the whole bowl.  I'll probably make it again next time I want a clever topping for ice's that good.

I encourage making these soon while apple season is still in full swing.  The best apples are the freshest apples!

Apple Fritters with Caramel Sauce
adapted from Tasty Kitchen

For the apple fritters:
2 large Gala apples
1/2 cup milk
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cups sugar
1/4 t. salt
1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. nutmeg
2-4 T. butter, for frying

Peel, core, and grate apples into a large bowl (do not drain).  Stir in milk, eggs, and vanilla.  Stir in all dry ingredients until just combined.  Heat a large skillet over medium to medium-high heat.  Grease liberally with butter.  Brown batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto the hot surface.  Once edges have browned, flip to cook the other side.  Remove hot cakes to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.  Re-grease the pan with more butter and repeat until all the fritter cakes are cooked.

For the caramel sauce:
1/2 cups butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup cream
1 dash salt
1/2 t. vanilla

Melt butter and sugar together over medium heat while stirring occasionally.  Let mixture simmer lightly until it starts to bubble and look foamy.  Cook this for 3-5 minutes.  Stir in milk, salt, and vanilla.  Turn burner off, but leave caramel sauce on the hot stove until ready to serve.
