Apple Fritters, revisited

Contour & Highlight Palette
A few years ago I shared the recipe for Apple Fritters here on the blog. 
I’ve been craving them lately, so I whipped up a batch this week. Apples have been a pregnancy craving for weeks now, so anything with apple in it sounds delicious to me! 
I couldn’t help but revisit the recipe and share it here on the blog again in case you missed it two years ago! 

Apple Fritters

1 beaten egg
1 cup milk 
1 cup finely chopped or grated apple (I used a granny smith)
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
3 tbsp orange juice
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tbsp baking powder
dash of cinnamon

vegetable oil for frying

1. Heat your oil to approx. 350 degrees on the stovetop. On my gas stove top, I heated the oil between low and medium. 
2. In a bowl combine beaten egg, milk, chopped/grated apple, sugar, salt, cinnamon, OJ, and vanilla. 
3. Stir together flour and baking powder in a separate bowl.
4. Fold dry mixture into wet mixture. Do not over mix. Mix just until combined.
5. Drop batter by rounded teaspoons into hot oil. Fry until golden brown, about 3-4 minutes turning once.
6. Once cooled a bit, roll in cinnamon & sugar and place on a plate.

Can they be baked?

Kate says · 10.02.13

probably not in this form, the dough is too soft.

I wonder if these would work with gluten free flour? Or almond flour? I might try them tomorrow!

Tammy Gentzkow says · 12.19.19

Iโ€™ve made these with Bobโ€™s Red Mill gluten free 1 to 1 baking flour and theyโ€™re were perfect. I donโ€™t know if you can you can use almond flour.

How many does this make?

Jillian says · 09.06.20

How much vegetable oil do you use to fry them in?

Kate says · 09.09.20

Depending on the size of your pot, however much is needed to cover the size of the apple fritter dough ball!

Teresa Harris says · 10.17.20

These look amazing! Do you think they will work in an airfryer?

Jill says · 10.17.21

Good morning where can I find that exact thermometer you are using?

Ari says · 10.17.21

Anyone try to make this in an air fryer?

Lauren F. says · 10.18.21
