Buttermilk Apple Fritters

Moe wanted a donut.  
Unfortunately a yeast dough donut takes too long to
make on short notice.
But there is always Apple Fritters.
They can be made from start to finish in less than an hour. 
Buttermilk Apple Fritters
=========================
2 cups Flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon Salt
2/3 cup Sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg
1 cup Buttermilk
2 Eggs
2 Tablespoons melted butter
2 cups finely chopped apple (2 to 3 apples depending on size).
Cooking Oil enough to fill pan a few inches
Toppings:
Brown Butter  Glaze.
powdered sugar
cream or buttermilk
vanilla extract
.
Peel and finely chop apples.
Can be used as is, or I like to saute them in a little butter and
brown sugar until softened.
Note:  If sauteing first, drain off any excess liquid before adding
to batter.
Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugar, cinnamon and
nutmeg together.
Beat eggs and add buttermilk, vanilla and melted butter.
Heat oil to 340°F  to 350°F.
When oil is ready, add Buttermilk mixture to dry ingredients and
mix until well combined.  Add apples.
Drop by spoonful into hot oil.    When one side has browned, turn
over and cook until golden.   They don’t take long to cook.  Just
a couple of minutes on both sides.  Drain on paper towels.
Glaze

Sorry I never measure when making a glaze.
Here is the basic outline. 
Brown two or three tablespoons of butter.
(don’t burn)
Add to powdered sugar along with a splash of cream or buttermilk
and vanilla.
Stir until smooth.
Dip warm fritters in glaze and place on wire rack.
