Even though this is supposedly a blog about the Raw Foods Pyramid and changes that I am making in our diet every since my husband was diagnosed with type 2 cancer…

A girl has to do what a girl has to do…

And right now that Mississippi girl has to fry something…(not to mention that I now live in Texas, where they fry everything from the encyclopedia to streetlights at the State Fair each year.

I feel like I can get by with this though because apples are actually on the Raw Foods Pyramid, and if you buy a ton of apples you want to make sure that you use them all, right?!

The perfect apple fritter is a sweet, tender, and fluffy donut-type object perfectly stuffed with juicy fresh apples…the perfect sweet glaze…and are served with the perfect hot cup of coffee.

Not only that, apple fritters are easy, require only a few simple ingredients, and take only thirty minutes from start to finish.
