Big Apple Fritters


For the Fritters:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 cups apples, peeled and diced
  • Vegetable oil for frying

For the Glaze:

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Prepare the Batter:
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and ground cinnamon.
  1. Make the Batter:
  • In a separate bowl, beat the eggs, and then add milk. Mix well.
  1. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Avoid overmixing; a few lumps are okay.
  1. Fold in Apples:
  • Gently fold in the diced apples into the batter.
  1. Heat Oil:
  • In a deep skillet or fryer, heat vegetable oil to 350°F (175°C).
  1. Fry the Fritters:
  • Using a spoon or an ice cream scoop, drop spoonfuls of batter into the hot oil. Fry until golden brown on both sides, turning as needed. Ensure they cook through by testing one to make sure the center is cooked.
  1. Drain Excess Oil:
  • Once golden brown, use a slotted spoon to remove the fritters and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.
  1. Make the Glaze:
  • In a bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract until smooth.
  1. Glaze the Fritters:
  • While the fritters are still warm, dip each one into the glaze, ensuring they are well-coated. Place them on a wire rack to allow excess glaze to drip off.
  1. Serve:
    • Serve the Big Apple Fritters warm and enjoy the delightful combination of crispy exterior and tender, apple-filled interior!

These fritters are a delicious treat, perfect for a cozy breakfast or dessert.
