Homemade Apple Fritters


  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1-½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1-½ cups chopped apples
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar and ¼ teaspoon cinnamon mixed
  • Powdered sugar


  • Heat a couple of inches of canola oil in a saucepan over medium-low heat. You can also use a fryer that has a set temperature gauge. I had mine at about 350 degrees. If your oil is too hot the outside will be brown before the inside gets done.
  • Peel and chop your apples. I used Granny Smith but feel free to substitute in your favorite.
  • Mix together the flour, baking powder and salt. Add in milk and eggs. Mix just until combined. Fold in the apples. It will be a very thick batter.
  • Before you cook you need to decide the size you want them. I used both a 1-½ tablespoon scoop and a 3 tablespoon sized scoop. The smaller one makes a fritter you can pop the whole thing into your mouth. The other makes one that takes a couple bites. Drop batter into the heated oil. Fry until golden brown, 4 to 6 minutes turning once during cooking.
  • Remove to a paper towel lined plate for just a moment. Then roll in cinnamon and sugar or dust with powdered sugar.
