Apple Fritter Recipe

Indulge in the sweet and crispy delight of homemade apple fritters with this easy-to-follow recipe. Made with fresh apples and a hint of cinnamon, these fritters are perfect for breakfast or dessert.


  • 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
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 cups finely chopped apples (about 2 medium apples)
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Powdered sugar for dusting


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and ground cinnamon.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and then stir in the milk until well combined.
  3. Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring until just combined. Do not overmix; lumps are okay.
  4. Gently fold in the chopped apples until evenly distributed throughout the batter.
  5. In a deep skillet or frying pan, heat about 2 inches of vegetable oil over medium heat until it reaches 350°F (175°C).
  6. Using a spoon or ice cream scoop, carefully drop spoonfuls of the batter into the hot oil, making sure not to overcrowd the pan. Fry the fritters for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and cooked through.
  7. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the cooked fritters to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.
  8. Allow the fritters to cool slightly before dusting them generously with powdered sugar.
  9. Serve warm and enjoy the crispy, apple-filled goodness of homemade apple fritters!

Note: These apple fritters are best enjoyed fresh, but leftovers can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days. Reheat in the oven or toaster oven for a few minutes before serving to regain their crispiness.
