Cheddar and Apple Puffs

I forgot all about these puffs until just now. I remember making them for Mabon a few years ago, and they were delicious. Some just commented on a photo of that Mabon dinner on Flickr, which reminded me of these puffs. I had to immediately dig out the recipe. These may be on the docket for this weekend.

2 eggs
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup milk
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1 cup flour
1 cup chopped apples
2 tsp. baking powder

Beat eggs well, add milk. Add flour, sifted with baking powder and salt. Add cheese and apples; mix well. Drop by spoonfuls into hot deep oil at 375 degrees. Fry until golden brown. If desired, apples may be omitted and puffs served with applesauce. Makes 24 small fritters.
