Gently fold in the apple chunks. The batter will be soft, sticky + thick. Heat the oil in a pot or pan until 350 degrees. Dump 1 tbsp of the batter into the frying pan. Fry for 1 minute on each side, until the fritters are golden brown.
– Remove the fritters from the frying pan using a slotted spoon and place into a brown paper bag or a tupperware container. Place the cinnamon sugar coating ingredients into the bag or container and gently mix to coat the fritters.
