I hate sweet breakfasts, yet when I visit the Wildwoods in New Jersey, I feel compelled to eat an apple fritter from Britton's Gourmet Bakery each morning for that all-important first meal of the day.
The apple fritter here is pretty near perfect, with a crisp exterior and a moist but not gooey interior studded with bits of tender apple. And they have just the right amount of icing—enough for added sweetness but not so much that your fingers stick together.
Be sure to get there early, though. Not even three generations of family on duty at any given time can keep the fritters in stock much past noon.
Don't take my word for it? Ronald Reagan himself wrote a letter praising the treats.
