My mom made these for us after school in the fall with the apples we’d pick and buy from a fruit farm. Warm, crisp, and sweet, a perfect fall treat.
Yummy! I replaced the white flour with Whole wheat pastry flour,Milk for skim milk,Splenda for the sugar & used egg beater’s in place of the egg’s.replaced applesauce(homade-no sugar with cinnamon) for the oil in the batter,Added 1 Tsp cinnamon to the batter.I grated 2 large honey crisp apple’s (skins on) into the batter.Put the cinnamon/splenda mixture in a brown bag, placed the fritters in the bag & shook to coat.I also used my small cookie dough scoop to put them into the hot oil.Worked perfectly!
They poofed out very well.A very nice size to handle for adult’s & kid’s.Very quick and super easy!Slightly crisp on the outside,moist,tender and fluffy on the inside.Great morning treat while we went on our Autumn walk!Great with Coffee!My kid’s loved them.No leftover’s,Alway a bonus! I will be making these again! I am thinking of trying pumpkin next time!YUM!!
Amazing with a little tweaking. I cut the apples in very, very tiny pieces. I doubled the batter, but not the apples. I doubled the sugar and added 2 tsp. of cinnamon. Drop by tablespoon or even teaspoon, depending on how large you want them. They puff up quite a bit. Do NOT make them too large or the center will still be raw. I also found that 375 was a bit too warm, I cooked them @ 350. They came out amazingly, way better than the fair! You actually get little pieces of apple in every bite! They were wicked easy to make! These will be a treat for my family for a long time.
This is a wonderful recipe. The batter turns out nice and poofy. I did realize soon that I needed to drop the temperature on my oil, but once through that firs test batch, I had no problems. I was lazy and used my Chop Wizard, leaving the skins on, but this is a really great way to wake up.
3 cups all-purpose flour
1½ cups sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
¾ teaspoon Apple Pie Spice
2 large eggs
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 Tablespoons butter, softened
1½ cups peeled, chopped apples
Oil for frying
Pour oil into a deep skillet or Dutch oven to a depth of about 3 inches.
Heat to 375 degrees.
Sift flour, sugar, salt, and Apple Pie Spice into a large mixing bowl.
Place eggs in a separate bowl and beat them lightly.
Stir in milk and vanilla.
Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the milk mixture. Add butter and beat with a mixer on low speed to moisten, about 1/2 minute. Scrape down sides of bowl and increase speed to medium for 2 minutes longer. Fold in apples. Using a 1/4 cup size measuring cup, drop into hot oil. Be careful not to splash the oil on yourself. If your pot is not very large at the top, you may be able to cook only one at a time.As the fritters cook, they will rise to the top.
When browned on the first side, carefully turn them over with a spatula to brown the second side.
Drain on paper towels and sprinkle immediately, and generously, with confectioner sugar or glaze I prefer glaze.
To make glaze confectioners sugar and milk or water whisk together and glaze while warm.
