apple fritters fail

On Sunday we had dinner at home - normally we go to either my parent's or John's paren't's for supper. I wanted to make a little treat after supper, so I went to my pinterest recipe board and picked this one. It looked simple and yummy and deep fried....... They look yummy right? Apple Fritters in 15 min? Yes please.

Well I made them. I doubled the recipe and it was really thick so I added a little more milk. I don't know what went wrong. The first batch didn't look too bad, but then I decided to make some a little bigger and they weren't cooked. I mixed up some milk with icing sugar and the icing sugar didn't dissolve, so the nice sugar glaze looked like curdled milk. Super disgusting. Luckily John came to help and saved them before I just threw everything away.

Yup. Pretty nasty. They didn't taste so bad - and all the kids at least tried some....except Elijah. He said he hated them. I hated them too! I had a messy kitchen and only a bunch of super nasty-looking balls of deep-fried dough to show for it! Lame.

I love when people post on things that aren't all fluffy and perfect. Thanks for sharing!
