Homemade Apple Fritters

Apples are bountiful this season, and if you are thinking of making a pie with that bushel of apples your family just picked– please do. And make a batch of these golden fried apple fritters while you're at it!


You'll Need:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 cups chopped tart apple
  • Canola oil
  • Confectioner’s sugar for dusting
  • Cinnamon sugar for rolling

1. In a large mixing bowl whisk together flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon. In a small bowl whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla and melted butter. Stir wet ingredients into dry so that the mixture is just combined, then fold in apple bits.
2. In a deep skillet or pot heat an inch and a half of oil. When the oil is quite hot (test it with a small scoop of batter) drop fritters by the teaspoon, about five at a time. Cook approximately 2 minutes, flip, then fry another 30 seconds to one minute, until they are deep golden brown. Remove to a paper towel and roll in cinnamon sugar or dust with powdered sugar when cool. Serve with hot coffee!
