Easy Homemade Apple Fritters

Apple Fritters

Apple Fritters

Apple Fritters. My husband Frank’s favorite. If I stop at Dunkin’ Donuts, I’ll pick him up one (or two).  I’ve never made them, though, but maybe its time. Apples & cinnamon — really, it’s one of the most perfect combinations out there!

This is a Facebook recipe shared by a friend, and I haven’t tried it yet (but I plan to!)  Since I wanted to save it and Pin it, (and you can’t Pin anything from FB), I’ll throw it up here and share with everyone else. Let me know if you’ve made these and how they turned out.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup chopped apple

GLAZE:

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons milk

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, cinnamon.
  2. Stir in milk and egg until just combined.
  3. Fold in apple.
  4. Pour oil into skillet so that it is approximately 1 1/2 deep.
  5. Heat oil on high. Oil is ready when a little dough thrown in floats to top.
  6. Carefully add dough to oil in heaping teaspoons. Cook until brown, about 2 minutes, then flip. Cook another 1-2 minutes, until both sides are browned.
  7. Transfer briefly to paper towels to absorb excess oil, then transfer to cooling rack.
  8. Make glaze by stirring milk and powdered sugar together in a small bowl.
  9. Drizzle over apple fritters. Wait approximately 3 minutes for glaze to harden, then flip fritters and drizzle glaze over the other side.

Best served warm.
