Description

Delicious little nuggets of cinnamon-apple wonderfulness. Dust with powdered sugar or dip in a doughnut glaze for a yummy breakfast treat or snack.

Ingredients

  • FRITTERS
  • 2 cups All-purpose Flour
  • ½ cups Sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 2-¼ teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1-¼ teaspoon Salt
  • 2 teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
  • 2 whole Large Eggs
  • ¾ cups Whole Milk
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Tablespoons Melted Butter
  • 2 whole Granny Smith Apples, Peeled And Diced
  • Powdered Sugar (optional, For Dusting)
  • GLAZE (optional)
  • 1-½ cup Powdered Sugar
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • ¼ teaspoons Vanilla
  • ¼ cups Milk

Preparation

In a mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.

In a separate bowl, beat the eggs with a fork, then add milk, melted butter, and vanilla.

Gently fold dry and wet ingredients together until just combined (do not overmix.) Fold in apples. Add enough apples to make a very chunky batter. You want the apples to shine though!

Heat a couple of inches of canola oil over medium to medium-low heat. When it gets hot, drop a little drop of batter into the oil. If it sizzles immediately and rises to the top, the oil is ready; if it burns quickly, turn down the heat.

Drop teaspoons of batter into the hot oil, six or eight at a time. Sometimes they’ll flip over by themselves; sometimes you have to flip them. Just watch them and make sure they don’t get too brown, but cook them long enough to make sure the batter’s cooked through, about 2 to 2 1/2 minutes total.

Remove and drain on a paper towel. Dust very generously with powdered sugar, or dip fritters in a light doughnut glaze (mix all glaze ingredients together, then dunk warm fritters).

Serve warm!

**May be heated up the next day in a 350 degree oven for 8 minutes.

Good Night Nellie…these were so good. Even when they were cool a few hours later, still tasty. I then tried substituting banana for apple and it only turned out okay.

These was so easy to make. And they are so good. I think they are good without the glaze or the powdered sugar on them. Thank you for sharing it

These were awesome! My whole family loved them. I used pumpkin spice instead of cinnamon, cuz my husband is allergic.

Seriously yummy! I am betting they aren’t going to be as good tomorrow…but they sure were good today!

These are sooo good. I agree that they aren’t as good the next day though!

These were so delicious! It’s true that they’re not as good the next day (or even a few hours later), but they’re so good when they’re fresh that I’m still giving these five mitts. I think it might help the mushiness a little if you really try to get all the excess oil out of every one, but I felt guilty using so many paper towels and just decided to let it be. The apple pieces were wonderful!

Great. We loved ‘em.

But…as mentioned above, they are not quite so great the next day, or any day after that. And one batch was too many for us to eat them all in one day. Next time I will make a half batch.

Delicious – but not so great the next day. I wonder if it was my fault because I glazed all of them? Might have been better if I had only glazed those we were going to eat that day. The next day they were mushy, even after 15 minutes in the oven.
