1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup sugar
1 large egg
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
powdered sugar, garnish
vegetable oil, for frying
Heat 2-3 inches of oil in a large skillet or Dutch oven until it reaches 365 F.
Note: make sure there’s at least 3 inches of space between the top of the oil and the top of the pot.
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in a large bowl and whisk together.
In a small bowl, whisk together the milk, egg and melted butter until incorporated, then pour it into the flour mixture.
Stir everything until just combined.
Use a spoon to drop heaping amounts of batter into the hot oil and fry (4-6 at a time), flipping occasionally, until golden brown on all sides. Around 3 minutes.
Remove fritters with a slotted spoon and transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain, then dust liberally with powdered sugar.
