My Apple Fritters

Here is my own version of apple fritters with cinnamon and nutmeg inside. I had a recipe for them and hadn't made them in years, however this morning decided to play around and tweak things.

You can reduce the salt if you are concerned about sodium. You don't have to put anything on them, or just add a sprinkle of sugar.

I used what apples I had on hand, Gala and Jazz. Firm, but are sweet and slightly tart. If you use Granny Smith, these are going to be tart so keep that in mind.

The apples inside the fried fritter should be slightly cooked and not "mushy".

How to Make My Apple Fritters

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oil in frying pan to 350 degrees (or use a deep fryer).
  2. Mix dry ingredients in large bowl and put aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together milk, vanilla, eggs and butter. Pour into flour mixture and stir until combined.
  4. Add apples and mix until well coated. It may seem like a lot of apples per batter but this is the way it should look.
  5. Drop batter by tablespoon into pan (I flattened mine down slightly immediately once in the pan). Don't crowd fritters. I fried about 5 at a time.
  6. Cook until deep golden brown on bottom and batter looks slightly bubbly and dry (not wet) on top. Flip and cook until golden brown.
  7. Remove from oil with slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
  8. While warm, add your topping. I used cinnamon sugar but you can easily add a glaze or sprinkle with powdered sugar. My girls rolled them in cinnamon sugar until they were coated (as you can see from the picture), but for mine, I just sprinkled some on top.
