Easy Cinnamon Apple Fritters

Easy apple fritters

So if you’re like me, you’re staring at a huge pile of apples you’ve just picked from the orchard.

Now what??

You can only chomp down on so many, and you definitely need to use them up before they start to go bad!

So here’s one way to use up those freshly picked beauties!

These apple fritters are super simple. We love them served warm dipped in maple syrup, drizzled with honey or even just dusted with powdered sugar!

Easy apple fritters

Whip these babies up this weekend, and watch that apple pile disappear!

  • 1 Cup of chopped apple (whichever you prefer)
  • 1 Cup milk
  • 1 3/4 Cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  1. I’m a small bowl toss your chopped apple and cinnamon together. Until well coated.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together your flour and baking powder.
  3. Combine your milk and beaten egg in a separate small bowl.
  4. Add your apples to your dry ingredients and mix. Then add your wet ingredients. Stir until just moistened. (Try not to over mix! This will make your fritters “tough”)
  5. Place enough oil to fry the apple fritters into a pan or deep fryer. Heat until hot about 375 degrees.
  6. Drop batter by tablespoon into the hot fat. Be careful as you drop the batter in, the oil could splash and burn your skin. Cook 3-4 minutes or until golden brown, turning once while frying.
  7. Drain on paper towels. Repeat for remaining batter.
  8. Serve warm drizzled with honey, dipped in maple syrup or topped with powdered sugar!
