Apple fritters are a type of fried doughnut that is popular in the United States, Canada, and parts of Europe. They are made with a batter that contains chunks or pieces of apple, and are often dipped in a sugar and cinnamon mixture.

Fritters are typically fried in vegetable oil or shortening, and can be either baked or deep-fried. Apple fritters can be served as a breakfast food, dessert, or snack.

This recipe will show you how to make delicious apple fritters that are perfect for any occasion!

What You’ll Need

-1 cup all-purpose flour
-1 teaspoon baking powder
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
-1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
-1 egg, beaten
-1/2 cup milk
-3 tablespoons sugar, divided
-2 tablespoons vegetable oil
-1 teaspoon vanilla extract
-2 cups peeled and grated Granny Smith apples

The batter

The batter for these fritters is very simple to make and only requires a few ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. Simply whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg. Then, add in the milk and egg and mix until everything is well combined.

Next, fold in the apples. I like to use a combination of Granny Smith and Honeycrisp apples because they offer a nice balance of sweetness and tartness. However, feel free to use whatever type of apples you prefer.

Once the batter is mixed, it’s time start frying! Heat up some oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Then, drop the batter by the tablespoonful into the hot oil. Fry for a few minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate and serve warm with a sprinkle of powdered sugar. Enjoy!

The apples

To make the apple fritters, you will need:
-2 cups of all-purpose flour
-3 teaspoons baking powder
-1 teaspoon salt
-1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
-1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
-1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
-2 cups of milk
-2 eggs, lightly beaten
-2 tablespoons of sugar
-1 teaspoon vanilla extract
For the fritters:
-6 cups of apples, peeled and cut into small pieces (I used Granny Smith apples)
-2 tablespoons of lemon juice


Warm a large skillet over medium heat and melt enough butter to coat the bottom. Peel and chop the apples into bite-sized pieces, then toss them in the cinnamon sugar. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla extract, and flour. Dip each piece of apple into the batter so that it’s coated, then place it in the hot skillet. Fry for 2-3 minutes per side, or until golden brown. Serve with a drizzle of honey or maple syrup. Enjoy!


With this recipe, you can easily whip up a batch of delicious apple fritters at home. The key to making them perfectly is to fry them until they are golden brown and crispy. Serve them warm with a dusting of powdered sugar, and enjoy!
