Best Apple Fritters

Friday, November 5, 2010









2 cups flour
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon ( I love cinnamon, sometimes I use more since I don't measure, oh well they are still wonderful)
pinch of salt
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg, ginger, and a pinch of cloves
1 cup milk
3 tablespoons butter, melted
2 large eggs


3 small or 2 medium tart apples, peeled ( diced approx 2 cups diced) I use either McIntosh or choose from my lists of many that will do fine, put them on the pulse in your food processor for a few seconds till finely chopped. 

 Have on hand, powdered sugar to roll in or make a thin glaze, whatever you prefer

Before preparing the batter, 

I heat my electric frypan or deep fryer or even a wok pan will do fine and heat it on from 1-10 a 4 heating cycle,  heat while mixing the ingredients. I have experimented on the heat, too high will make raw centers, so make one first, if its browning too quickly on one side, it's too high lower it...or you will ruin them all.

Combine the flour, brown sugar, and spices in a large mixing bowl. Use a fork, to mix everything together. Add the milk, butter, and eggs to the dry ingredients and blend them all together. 

Add diced apples and stir till moistened, do not beat this. I have had many fritters bought here in the South, they don't compare to this homemade recipe. 

They are tender and so delicious! 

Tip: Dip the end of your fork with a little batter still on it into the hot oil, if it sizzles it's ready to fry!
Drop into the hot oil and fry and both sides till lightly browned.  



Place on paper towels to absorb the grease.  You can glaze them with confectionery sugar and water icing or just sprinkle with confectionery sugar while still warm.

  26. Fritters have a special place in my families heart. When we lived in MI our babysitter made them for my kids. After that whenever she asked the kids what they wanted to eat the answer was fritters. When we moved she gave them a present her fritter recipe and a deep fryer so we could make them.
    By the way McIntosh are one of my favorites too.
