:: Homemade Apple Fritter Recipe ::
He loves apple fritters. The love of my life loves apple fritters… what can I say? He doesn’t ask for much. 🙂
We reserve frying for a rare treat – maybe once every few years. That’s not to say I don’t cook with butter and sauté a fair amount of our food in extra virgin olive oil, but frying – that’s a different story. I just try to avoid it or we’d be eating it all the time!
The dough comes together very simply. Nothing complicated. I’m not really experienced with frying but this recipe is very user-friendly. I will confess though… when I first made these I got a little greedy and dropped dough in amounts that were at least double what the recipe instructs. Learned my lesson well! The outside of the fritter got nice and dark brown but the insides weren’t cooked. I’m glad I checked instead of doing the whole recipe like that!
This will absolutely be the best tasting mess you ever make in your kitchen. haha! Glaze is an easy clean up – Don’t sweat the small stuff. Just seeing this picture makes me sad all over again that this last batch is gone.
So, there’s room enough for everyone’s cravings in our kitchen. And he certainly craves apple fritters. They were so delicious and how can you beat a treat made with love!!?? Store bought apple fritters have nothin’ on these plump little darlings. I’m thinking of some Italian Donuts next, but that would be another craving and another post.

- Heat oil on medium high in a deep skillet (depth of 1- 1 1/2 inch) until small amount of dough put in oil floats to the top
- Slowly add dough by heaping teaspoons (too much dough and your fritter will not cook in the center)

- While still warm, place fritters on a cooling rack
- Drizzle glaze and allow it to cool and harden then flip and glaze other side
