This is a recipe that a friend picked up from from her host mum when she was doing her postgrad in Texas. She said that her host mum used to make this for breakfast.

She has never made it before as she doesn't cook, and so she passed to recipe to me and I made it this morning for our breakfast. I made a full recipe, and her host mum made the same for 6-8 people, but the two of us and a friend wolfed the entire batch down. They were so good!

No picture this time - I will definitely snap one the next time I make these little delights!

How to Make Apple Fritters for Breakfast...or Whenever, Really


  1. In a bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and cinnamon. Stir in milk and egg till just combined. Mix in chopped apple.
  2. Pour oil into a skillet, oil should be about 1 1/2 inches deep. Heat oil on high. (I usually test the oil by inserting a wooden chopstick into the oil right to the base of the skillet, little bubbles should surround the chopstick and rise to the surface) Line a plate with a paper towel.
  3. Drop heaping tablespoons of the mixture into the hot oil. Cook for 2 minutes and then flip to other side to cook for another two minutes. Fritters should be nicely browned.
  4. Transfer the cooked fritters to the paper towel to absorb excess oil. (I have a wire mesh that fits over 1/3 of my skillet so I leave my fritters there to drip for a bit before transferring them to the paper towel)
  5. Remove fritters from the paper towel when the excess oil has been absorbed so they don't sit in the oil.
  6. For the glaze, mix the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla (if using) together and drizzle on one side of the fritter. Leave for a bit to harden, then flip fritter over and drizzle on other side. Serve warm. (We couldn't wait to eat them so I just dusted powdered sugar on our fritters)
