1 cup flour
Sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in a medium-size mixing bowl. Pour the milk into the dry ingredients and stir until the batter is smooth. Add the apples to the batter and blend well.
Drop by tablespoonfuls into hot oil in a heavy skillet (or electric deep fryer). Fry until golden brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels and serve with warm Vermont maple syrup.
Makes about 16 apple fritters.
