Apple Fritters


Fritters are similar to donuts, but they’re made by taking a primary ingredient, such as apples, and then mixing them into a batter.


Yield: about 1 dozen


Active Time: 30 minutes
Start to Finish: 30 minutes

For this recipe you’ll need:

  • Oil for frying

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • Pinch salt

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg

  • 1 large red apple, such as Honeycrisp or Fuji, peeled and cut in 1/2-inch dice

  • 1 egg

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1/3 cup milk

  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted


    For the glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar

  • 2 tablespoons milk

  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

      1. Heat the oil in a large, heavy pot until it reaches 365°.

      2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and spices. Stir in the diced apple.

      3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, vanilla and milk. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and add the melted butter. Mix until just combined.

      4. Use a large spoon to carefully drop dollops of the dough into the oil. Fry the donuts 3 or 4 at a time for about 1 to 2 minutes per side or until deep golden brown. Adjust the flame under the pot as they cook to keep the temperature as close to 365º as possible.

      5. Using a skimmer, transfer the donuts to a rack set over a sheet tray. Allow to cool before glazing.

      6. Stir together the glaze ingredients, and drizzle the glaze over the fritters with a spoon. (Alternatively, the fritters can be sprinkled with powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar while warm.)
