Apple Fritters


I love apple fritters, but the ones available at the local donut shop tend make my tummy a little upset.  Something about the oil they use.  So here’s my homemade version.

1 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/3 cup milk
1 egg
1 cup peeled apple chopped into small bits
Coconut Oil


2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons milk

Sift together flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg.  Whisk together milk and egg and stir into dry ingredients until just combined.  Fold in apple.  Pour about 1 1/2 inches of oil into skillet.  Heat oil on medium high heat.   Use a big spoon and kind of dribble batter into hot oil until you get the size of fritter you want, they puff up a bit in the hot oil.  Cook until brown, then flip and cook the other side.  Transfer to cooling rack placed on top of sheet pan and glaze.

Make glaze by stirring milk and powdered sugar together in a small bowl.  Drizzle over apple fritters.  Wait approximately 3 minutes for glaze to harden, then flip fritters and drizzle glaze over the other side.

  1. I think I love you…well I know I love this recipe….ever see something on your computer screen, and start drooling? Wishing you could reach into the screen and grab a fritter or two?

    • Jueseppi, Thank you for your support and your kind words! For some reason, all you comments were in my spam folder and I only just saw them today. I’m new to the wonderful world of blogging and I’ve obviously got a lot to learn.

      Best to you, always!

      • Yes…for some reason WordPress thinks I am potted meat in a square can (spam). I don’t know why my comments go straight to spam. Very pleased to meet you Ms. Lori…your recipes are amazing. Please continue to write.

  2. I’ve already bookmarked this recipe because I’d love to make them this weekend. I’m itching to try this. Thanks for the recipe, Lori.

  3. Do you know if these can be created with less sugar? Would honey work? I try to stay away from as much sugar and oil as I can these days. They look delicious but very fattening.

    • I’m sure you could use honey in the fritter, omit the glaze and instead just lightly dust with powdered sugar. Not sure how to get around the oil since they are fried. They definitely are not diet friendly. 🙂
