To make apple fritter batter, mix two eggs, 1 2/3 cups of milk and 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil. In a separate bowl, mix 2 cups of flour, 1/4 cup of sugar, 2 teaspoons of baking powder and a pinch of salt. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.
Choose a large bowl for the wet ingredients, and beat them thoroughly with a whisk until they are smooth. Pour the dry ingredients in gradually, stirring continuously with a wooden spoon. The batter should be thick at this point. Continue to mix it until it is smooth and free of lumps.
If you are making apple fritter rings, leave the dough as is. For standard fritters, cut up small chunks of apple, and fold them into the batter.
Customize the apple fritter batter to deepen the flavor. Add 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract to the wet ingredients and increase the sugar by 1/4 cup to make a sweeter dessert. If you want a hint of spice, stir 1 teaspoon of cinnamon or nutmeg into the dry ingredients. Alternatively, use an apple pie spice mix. Replace the vegetable oil with the equivalent amount of melted butter to lend the fritters a richer taste.
