Apple Fritters for a Junior Cook

This is a great recipe for first time junior cooks – and is the first recipe my daughter followed all by herself. They are like little pikelets with fresh grated apple and delicious with double cream or ice cream. 
Recipe from the Junior Cook cookbook by Mary Pat Fergus.

½ cup plain flour
A dash of salt
2 tsp sugar
1 egg
½ cup milk
2 of your favourite apples* (pink lady, granny smith etc)
*For a variation, you can use 2 chopped bananas instead.

Sift flour, salt and sugar into a large mixing bowl.
In a small bowl or cup, mix the egg and milk together with a fork.
Pour the egg mixture into the flour mix – stir well until there are no lumpbs.
Peel and grate the apples – they will brown quickly so do this just before mixing. Stir the grated apple into the batter mix.
Heat a frypan on medium heat.
Lightly grease with a some butter – you can put a large cold cube of butter on the end of a fork and rub it all over, or drop a dollop in and stir the frypan around til the butter covers the bottom.
Drop large spoonfuls of batter in the pan – 3 at a time or so.
When bubbles show on the top, flip them over and cook til golden.
Sprinkle with sugar, serve with double cream or ice cream.
Makes 8 – 10 fritters depending on their size.
