When apple season rolls around we like to celebrate by making Apple Fritters. These sweet and crunchy deep-fried cakes, topped off with confectioners' sugar, are sure to bring back some great Fall memories!

What You'll Need

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 to 5 apples, peeled, cored, and cut in 1/4-inch-thick round slices
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar

What to Do

  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, milk, and egg; mix well.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil until hot but not smoking. Dip apple slices into batter, one at a time, then place in oil. 
  3. Cook 1 to 2 minutes per side, or until golden on both sides. Drain on a paper towel-lined platter.
  4. Place confectioners' sugar in a shallow dish. Carefully dip hot fritters in sugar, coating completely. Serve immediately.

Why can't I print the recipe w/o the blank spot shown on the page? I wanted the recipe for the apple fritters

Hi jrct3 4780632, Were not sure what browser you are using, but sometimes individual browser settings can cause recipes to print strangely. Also, outdated versions of browsers may not be supported. We are not seeing the blank spot that you mentioned and we test printed this recipe, but were not able to replicate the issue. We recommend trying to print from a different browser (Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox).

Made it and it came out just great. Thanks! Used this new frying oil I just got, Sunvella FryPure and that made it not only less greasy and crunchier but also healthier because it is high oleic sunflower oil. Very happy I found this recipe it will be my regular treat.

I made half a recipe, but used a whole small egg. The batter was just right to coat the apple slices. I used Jonagold apples - crispy and sweet but slightly tart. I learned to not have the oil too hot. By cooking at a slightly lower temperature, the apple cooked a bit more inside and the batter crust didn't get overly brown. My last 4 were perfect and utterly delicious.

Does anyone know what the tool is called that Mr. Food uses to turn the fritters? And where can I get one?

I used a pair of nylon tongs. After the fritters were cooked on the bottom, the tongs didn't do any harm. I haven't seen Mr Food's tool so cannot comment on that.

mmmm - tastes just like grandma used make.

Sounds delicious. Going to get the ingredients tomorrow.

I followed the ingredient list very close but my batter has the consistency of bread dough. Any help??

puppyboy 8023640. It sounds like you need to add a little bit more milk. The batter should be like pancake batter maybe a little bit thicker. Try adding a little milk at a time and then dip a apple slice in it. If it runs off to thin or if it won't stick to thick. Your going to have to play with the consistency of the batter. Hope this helps.

What's the best apple to use?

Hello! Most apples will work fine, but we like Granny Smith and Gala apples the best for this recipe. :)

I used Jonagold (a combination of Jonathan and golden delicious that we buy here in Ohio). See my post above about my fritters.

can you use Bisquick mix?

Yes, you can use Bisquick mix. Enjoy!

So good I add a teaspoon of cinnamon and use apple juice instead of milk

thank u chef, for me as a beginner. i think i can already do it, i hope my kids will like it. im going to try it tomorrow :)

May I suggest adding some cinnamon or even some nutmeg?

Can you use another oil beside vegetable oil to make these without ruining the taste?

I have been looking for a raisin pie recipe without much success. The raisin pie was always a staple served at the gathering following Pa Dutch or Amish funerals. Serving it room temperature was best. Can you help me find such a recipe. It was OH, So Good.

Saltypelly Maybe you should be searching under Funeral Pie....anyway here is a link, hope it helps == pie

look for a shew fly pie. I have an Amish cook book, that is packed away somewhere, but It has a shew fly pie in it, and it tells about how it is a funeral pie. It is a raisin pie. hope this helps

How can I get the free cookbooks? Everything sounds delicious. Mildred K. Amos, 451 S E 136 Ave., Old Town, Fl.32680

What type of apples should be used

You can use any type of apple you like. Red Delicious, Gala...totally up to you. Enjoy!

Thanks for the nutritional information it will help with my diet.

This is very similar to an old, old recipe I had from my grandmother. I have been wanting to make it and now after seeing this one, I will certainly do it. Thanks!

I think I will sprinkle some cinnamon onto the apple before coating with batter as an extra flavorful touch.

I think we will have to serve these on our food truck !!

have made these before, and they are "Wonderfully Good" !! I will be getting some apples soon. Thanks for the reminder! :)

As stated, I've not made this recipe yet, but I have a question about recipes in general. Not a question, actually, but a suggestion for all us. Why not include calorie and nutrition values in these wondefrul recipes? I might be more easily tempted to try them if they included this info. Thank you for your consideration.

Thank you for your suggestion. We are actually working on bringing nutritional information to Please keep checking back and we hope to have it soon! Thank you for your comment!

Will try this one, going this weekend to get apples.

Must try.
