Delicious Fresh Peach Fritters
Bunny's Warm Oven Blog
We had some fresh peaches in the Test Kitchen, and we decided to give this recipe a try. Well, let me tell ya ... this was a big hit! I bet these will become a favorite in your house too.
I also drizzled with glaze which was really good. Next time, I can't wait to roll them in some sugar.

How to Make Delicious Fresh Peach Fritters
- 1These Peach Fritters come together quickly and fry up in about 3 minutes to a beautiful puffy golden brown. The batter doesn't have any sugar in it so rolling it in granulated sugar or topping them with a glaze as I did, is what makes it sweet. If you would prefer the batter to be a little sweet as I did, add 2 Tbsp of sugar to the batter. I added about 1/2 of a teaspoon of cinnamon to the batter just because cinnamon goes so well with peaches. I made the glaze by measuring out 1 cup of confectioners sugar and adding just enough milk to be able to drizzle over the fritters. You could use lemon or orange juice instead of milk to flavor the glaze with as well. If you really wanted to get fancy you could top them with crushed pecans after they're glazed! Wouldn't that be nice!
- 2I measured the batter out with 1/4 cup measuring cup and they were the perfect size for us. Using that measuring cup, I got 10 fritters from the batter. The inside of the fritter is loaded with peaches! Apples (Sauteed first) or pineapple would also do well in this batter. The texture of the fritter is very soft, fluffy and moist.
- 5With long handled ladle, ladle about 1/4 -1/2 cup batter into hot oil. The batter will sink at first and then rise. Cook for about 2 - 3 minutes, depending on size of fritters.
- 6Remove fritters from oil with long-handled tongs. Quickly drain on paper towels or newspaper.
- 7Then place fritter in bowl of sugar. Coat with sugar on both sides, or glaze tops of fritters.
