In a medium-sized bowl stir the diced apples with the lemon juice, set aside.
In another medium-sized bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg, set aside.
In a large bowl whisk the eggs until beaten.
Add the milk, butter, sugar, and vanilla, whisk until smooth.
Add the dry ingredients and stir it in until combined with no dry patches.
Fold in the apples.
In a dutch oven or deep fryer, add about 4 inches of oil up the side of the pan. Bring the oil temperature up to 350°F.
Once the oil is hot, drop ¼ cup dollops of the batter carefully into the oil. Fry until golden brown on the outside and cooked through on the inside, about 10 minutes total, flipping the fritters a few times to brown evenly. You will need to fry in batches as you don’t want to crowd the pan, I do 3 fritters at a time.
Drain the fritters well then place them on a wire rack over a sheet tray so they can drip and cool.
While the fritters are frying, make the glaze by placing the milk into a small saucepan over medium-low heat and bring it to a simmer. Take off the heat and stir in the butter. Once the butter has melted, add the powdered sugar and whisk it in until dissolved.
Add the glaze to a bowl and dip the fritters into the glaze one by one and place it back on the wire rack over the sheet tray. Do this step twice. If there is any glaze leftover, spoon it over the tops of the fritters.
Granny Smith is our go-to apple for this recipe, see other apples above that can be used.
Do not overcrowd your pan when frying, this will help each one cook evenly.
Make only when you are ready to consume them as they will get soggy as they sit.
You can halve or double the batch depending on how many you are serving.
Peanut oil is our favorite but vegetable or canola oil can also be used.
If you do not want to glaze these, you can roll in a cinnamon sugar mixture.
Try switching up your glaze flavor by adding some cinnamon or even some caramel sauce.
