Apple Fritters

Main - Apple Fritters

I made these apple fritters for the night of the super bowl, but I’m only getting around to posting the recipe now! It’s been a busy few weeks. These were really delicious – I had to get the leftovers out of the house immediately to keep me from eating all of them.


for the fritters…
4 ¼ cups all purpose flour
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 egg, room temperature
1 cup milk
2 apples

for the glaze…
1/2 cup icing sugar
1/4 cup caramel (see blog post here)
2 tablespoons syrup (I used maple)
dash of lemon juice
crushed walnuts


Combine 2 cups of the flour, baking powder, and cinnamon in a bowl. Set aside. In a separate bowl, whisk together the sugar, butter, and egg. Set aside.

1 - Dry Ingredients

2 - Wet Ingredients

Peel, core, and dice the apples. Add the prepared dry ingredients and the apples to the wet ingredients, and stir to combine.

3 - Halved Apples

4 - Combine Wet Dry Apples

Alternate adding the remaining 2 ¼ cups of flour and milk, stirring just to combine.

5 - Add Remaining Dry

On a floured surface, roll the dough into a log that is ~24 inches long. Let rest for 30 minutes.

6 - Roll Into Log

Preheat deep fryer to 350F. Prepare the glaze by whisking all ingredients together (except for the walnuts). Transfer the glaze to a squeezy bottle and set aside.

7 - Make Glaze

Cut the dough-log into 24 equal pieces. Fry 6 fritters at a time, about 2 to 3 minutes per side until golden. Remove from oil and dry on paper towels.

8 - Slice

9 - Deep Fry

10 - Dry on Paper Towel

Drizzle with the glaze, sprinkle with walnuts, and dig in!

11 - Drizzle Glaze

Final - Apple Fritters
