These delicious apple fritters make an excellent breakfast or dessert dish. 


  • 1 cup/4 1/2 ounces flour (all-purpose, sifted)
  • 1/4 cup sugar (granulated)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup apple (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 cup sugar (confectioners,' sifted)

Steps to Make It

Heat the warming drawer or oven to 200° F to keep the fritters warm as you fry batches.

Heat about 2 1/2 to 3 inches of oil in a deep saucepan or in the deep fryer to about 360 F to 370 F.

Sift together the flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder. Add milk and egg; beat until batter is smooth. Fold in chopped apple.

Drop by teaspoonfuls into deep hot oil and fry for about 2 to 3 minutes, until the fritters are golden brown.

Drain well on paper towels. Keep warm while making subsequent batches.

Roll in confectioners' sugar or cinnamon sugar for serving, or serve warm, with syrup.
