Kids in the Kitchen: Classic Apple Fritters
My daughter loves apple brown betty. It’s one of those desserts you could say that never gets old. In fact, she loves it so much that at the end of every summer my family and I go apple picking at the local U-pick farm, and we wind up making it again and again. So when I told her that we would be baking with apples, she immediately thought that we would be making this classic American dessert.
However, with school ending and summer break arriving it was time to break out the skillet and whip up this tasty treat. Apple fritters are the perfect dessert for summer time. They’re light and fluffy, sweet and chewy, and so simple that my daughter had no problem following the cooking instructions. So as the warm weather arrives, and the festivals and carnivals roll into town, I hope you enjoy this super easy dessert. Follow the step by step instructions and tell me what you think by commenting below or tweeting me at the @The_NoobChef. I would love to hear from you! Have a great day everyone and let’s get cooking!
