Sweet apple fritters used to be the treat we would get at the state fair. Warm, crispy, filled with chunks of apples, and coated in the sweet glaze, they taste like donuts! Now, I make them from scratch in my own kitchen, any time the craving hits. Why? Because they are super easy to make and all I need are pantry staples and apples. That’s it!

I like to dip them into a glaze but dusting with powdered sugar or coating with cinnamon sugar is equally delicious. Have fun with the recipe and enjoy the sweet final result!

How to fry apple fritters?

Fill a deep pot with about 3″ of oil. I use vegetable oil. Heat it up over medium heat until it reaches 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Using two spoons, drop batter with apples into oil and spread into a fritter. You don’t want a ball of batter. Flip using two forks. Once fried, remove with forks or use the wire mesh strainer. Place fritters on a wire rack to cool.

Can I bake these apple fritters?

The batter in this recipe is not suitable for baking on a sheet pan. It really is best to fry these fritters. However, you could use a donut pan or a muffin pan to bake them!

How to glaze apple fritters?

The classic way to finish apple fritters is to dip them into a sweet glaze made with powdered sugar and milk. It’s my favorite! You can also dust them with powdered sugar or coat them with cinnamon sugar, just like donuts!

Best tips for apple fritters:

  • Don’t overmix the batter.
  • Heat up oil to 350 degrees F for the best result. Check the temperature once in a while to make sure it stays at the same level.
  • Use two spoons to drop the batter into the oil and spread gently. If you drop a scoop of batter into the oil, the outside will be crispy and the center will be raw.
  • To make them really crispy, I prefer to fry them until they are dark brown not just golden brown.
  • Cool fritters on a wire rack. If you place them on a paper towel, they will absorb the moisture and the bottoms will be soggy.
  • I recommend using a smaller Dutch oven for frying fritters. It keeps the heat well!

Ingredients

  • 1 ½
    cup
    all-purpose flour
  • 2 ½
    teaspoons
    baking powder
  • ½
    teaspoon
    salt
  • ½
    teaspoon
    cinnamon
  • 3
    tablespoons
    packed brown sugar

  • cup
    milk
  • 2
    large eggs
    room temperature
  • 2
    teaspoons
    vanilla extract
  • 2
    tablespoons
    butter
    melted
  • 4
    Granny Smith apples
    cut into chunks
  • ½
    cup
    powdered sugar
  • 3
    teaspoons
    milk
  • vegetable oil
    for frying

Instructions

  1. Wash and peel apples. Cut them into quarters, remove seeds, then cut each piece into thick slices. Cut each slice into chunks, about ½” thick. Drizzle with a little bit of lemon juice to preven browning, and set aside.

  2. Pour vegetable oil into a deep pot, until it comes up 3 inches up the sides. Heat up over medium heat.

  3. Place a wire rack on a large baking sheet. Set aside.

  4. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and sugar.

  5. In a glass measuring cup, whisk milk, eggs and vanilla.

  6. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and fold in gently. Do not overmix.

  7. Add apples to batter and fold in a couple of times. Add melted butter and fold in.

  8. Once the oil reaches 350° F, drop fritter batter with apples using two spoons and spread as flat as you can. You don’t want a ball of batter as it will not cook evenly. Fry 2 to 3 fritters at a time, depending on the size of your pot.

  9. Once nice and brown, flip the fritters to cook on the other side. I use two forks to do this.

  10. Remove fritters from oil and place on a wire rack. The steam will be escaping and the fritters will be crispy. If you place them on the paper towel, the bottoms may be soggy.

  11. Repeat with remaining batter.

  12. In a bowl, mix powdered sugar with milk until drizzling consistency. Dip each fritter in glaze and set back on the rack.

  13. Enjoy warm!
