Apple Fritters

The ingredients:
1 cup buttermilk
2 eggs, separated
1 teaspoon sugar
pinch of salt
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1-1/2 cups finely diced tart apples (about 2 medium)
Vegetable oil
for frying

Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg together. Blend buttermilk and egg yolks with flour mixture. Beat until well blended. Set aside. Beat egg whites until stiff, then fold egg whites and chopped apple into buttermilk and flour mixture.
Heat oil in heavy pan, then drop batter by tablespoonfuls into hot oil. Cook until golden brown, then roll over with a fork and cook the other side until golden also. Remove from pan and roll in sugar or drizzle with glaze. Serve hot with fresh fruit. Enjoy!
