Every single morning during my last month of pregnancy I ate an apple fritter on my way to work…alone in the car…licking my fingers after each bite.  Yes, I got really fat. Anyway.

I have been inspired to bring little S into the kitchen more by my friend Rebecca’s site Cooking With My Kid, so we made these homemade fritters together and are sharing the recipe here and over at Cooking With My Kid today.  These might give you a heart attack but the recipe is easy, quick, and your kids will be like “Mommy made donuts!  We love mommy!!!” If you don’t want to deep fry try some Apple Cream Cheese Muffins instead.  Get the full Apple Fritter Recipe after the jump…
