donut peach fritters with glaze
Sweet but not too sweet this recipe is the August baking special! This recipe is super easy to make and only takes you a few minutes once the peaches are peeled and diced.
1 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup milk
1 tablespoon melted butter
1 1/4 cups diced peaches (2-3 fresh white donut peaches)
oil for frying in a pan or a deep fryer
powdered sugar glaze: 1 cup powdered sugar, milk,
Place the flour, salt, sugar, cinnamon and baking soda in a large bowl. Whisk the ingredients together until they are well combined.Step 2:
Whisk the eggs, milk, and melted butter into the flour ingredients until they are well combined.Step 3:
Fold the peeled, pitted and cubed peaches into the batter. Set the batter aside for a minute while we heat the oil up to fry the fritters.
Step 4: You can use a frying pan or an electric fryer with oil if you have one. A medium size saucepan will do just fine!
Step 5: Fill the saucepan will oil, half way up the pan. Then heat the oil to hot and drop 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup batter into the hot oil. The batter will sink at first and then rise to the top of the oil. Cook the batter for 2 – 3 minutes, depending on the size of the fritters. While they are frying flip them over a couple times if need be to get a nice golden color on both sides of the fritter.
Step 6: Remove the fritters from the hot oil with long tangled tongs. Quickly drain the fritters on paper towels. You have two options to coat the fritters. You can either have a bowl of granulated sugar ready to coat them in after they are fried and drained or make a simple glaze with confectioners sugar and milk.
Step 7: Sugar glaze! Just put confectioners sugar in a bowl, add as little or as much milk as you want to the confectioners sugar to get the drizzling consistency you want. It’s really just that easy to make.
