Old Fashioned Apple Fritters Review by Loni on October 6th, 2011:

This was very good, the batter would be perfect for switching the apples with sausage links for breakfast pig in the blanket. Only issue is the ingredient list says nothing about nutmeg, so I added about a qtr tsp each of nutmeg, cloves, and 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. Perfect. You get a hint of them, but def not overpowering. Will definitely make this again.
