There are few things as delicious or as comforting as a warm homemade dessert. Am I right?? These Easy Apple Fritters are a home run any time of the year! All you need are a handful of ingredients and in no time your kitchen will smell amazing and everyone will be licking their fingers!
Just a few pantry staples and a handful of apples are all you need to earn yourself warm, fragrant, decadent Apple Fritters. These fritters are worth every calorie, you can easily justify eating a few because of the apples…right? After all “an apple a day” or at least that’s what I tell myself, haha.
The way I see it, a homemade sweet of some sort beats a pre-packaged cookie, sweet, candy or (gasp) Tastycake. As a gal from Philly…talking any kind of trash on any sort of Tastycake can get me into trouble, lol!
10 minutes to make the batter as well as peel and chop the apples. 3 minutes to make the glaze and a few minutes to fry ’em and just like that you will be enjoying these hot, scrumptious, Easy Apple Fritters. And you will definitely be licking your fingers!
- 2-3 peeled apples 1 1/2 cups when diced
- 1 cup flour
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1 egg
- 2 TBS cinnamon sugar mixture 2 TBS sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon
- Oil for frying the fritters
- Combine the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder, and whisk until combined.
- In a small bowl whisk the milk and egg until combined, add into dry ingredients and mix until just incorporated.
- Toss the apple chunks with the cinnamon & sugar and dump the mixture into the batter, stir just a bit to move apples around.
- Heat oil to 370 degrees.
- Fry heaping spoonfuls (or use a cookie scoop) of the batter (being sure you get apples in each scoop)until golden brown (about 2-3 minutes),
- If frying in a sealed fryer, shake basked around just a bit during frying to ensure even rotation of cooking. If cooking in an open frying pan/poy, flip fritters using a spatula or fork to ensure even cooking.
- Once fritters are removed from the fryer, place them on a cooling rack with paper towels under to catch any drips. If rolling in cinnamon & sugar, do so as soon as you can handle the fritters. If sprinkling with powdered sugar or dipping them in a simple glaze, allow them to cool a bit more.
- To make glaze simply combine 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar, a splash of vanilla and 1-1 1/2 TBS milk. Stir until smooth and drizzle over fritters or go ahead and dunk them in. If dunking them in, allow them to set for a few minutes and enjoy…they don’t really “keep” that way. Fritters are best enjoyed soon after you make them while still warm. For best results fry in batches of 3 or four. I use a small cookie scoop to make dropping the batter into the oil nice and easy.
