Blogging from A to Z: Apple Fritters

Our first recipe for the A to Z Blogging Challenge is Apple Fritters! 
I've never made them and I'm not sure I've eaten them since they were on the school lunch menu in elementary school.  Oh, elementary school, that was fun times, don't you agree?

Anyway, here's the 'cipe, let me know if you try it out.


  • 2 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 2-1/4 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1-1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
  • 2 whole Large Eggs
  • 3/4 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)
  • 1-1/2 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1/4 cup Milk
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).

The powdered sugar is my favorite part, friends, not going to lie.


  1. Mmmm... apple fritters. Yummy stuff! Years ago we used to go to a restaurant called "Aprons" and instead of bringing bread to the table prior to the meal, they brought complimentary apple fritters. Oh my! We'd barely have room for our meal but we didn't complain.

  2. Can feel the sugar rush from here! Most likely, I would stick with the cinnamon and apples. Looking forward to a mouth-watering April following your AtoZ recipes.

  3. Oh my gosh - yum!! Saving this to make for the fam this weekend.

  4. Yum! Good thing reading your posts won't add any weight. Right???

  5. My grandmother used to make apple fritters and I ate so many once that I threw up. I couldn't eat them anymore after that :( It's been quite a few years since then (maybe 60) so maybe I should try them again! Nice post.

  7. I have quite a few apples canned in the basement. Might have to try improvising your recipe with these precooked ones.
    Glad to finally get around to visiting. Been a busy week here.
