Fresh Apple Fritters Recipe

food, fresh apple fritters recipe

One of our favorite fall traditions is to head to the local apple orchard. Here in Vegas, there isn’t a lot of opportunity to eat truly local foods- but every fall, we head to the orchard to pick apples directly from the trees. My kids love it- and they especially love the apple cider donuts we get before we leave!

While I can’t compete with fresh apple cider donuts made at an apple orchard, I can come close with these delicious Apple Fritters! They can be made using any kind of apple {our orchard has Granny Smith but you can use any kind from your local grower or the grocery store, too} and you can even make a couple of small alterations to them to make them fit your dietary needs.

Instructions for the Fritters:

  1. In a deep frying pan, add at least two inches of oil and warm over medium heat to 370 degrees.
  2. Combine apples, sugar, and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Toss to coat the apples and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, add the flour, brown sugar, salt, and baking powder. Whisk to combine.
  4. In a small bowl or large measuring up, whisk together the milk and egg. Add the milk mixture to the dry ingredients and stir to combine.
  5. Pour the apples into the batter and stir to coat all the apples.
  6. Scoop ¼ cup of batter into the heated oil and cook until golden brown, around 3 minutes. Flip the fritter halfway through to ensure even cooking.
  7. Place the cooked fritters on a wire rack to cool.

Instructions for the Glaze:

  1. Whisk together the powdered sugar, three tablespoons of milk, and vanilla in a medium bowl until a smooth glaze forms. Add more milk if the glaze is too thick, 1/2 TBSP at a time.
  2. When the desired consistency is reached, spoon the glaze over the top of the warm fritters. Allow the glaze to set before serving.

Alterations: To make these gluten-free, just sub out the flour for a gluten-free baking flour. Want to make them lactose-free? I use LACTAID in place of milk in the glaze and the batter- it works the same as traditional milk, just without the lactose!
