I love apples. I am always looking for new recipes to use apples in- apple turnovers, apple dumplings, apple pancakes, etc. However, I’ve searched and never found an apple fritter recipe that I actually thought was easy to follow and tasted great– until this one. For those of you who love apples like me and are looking for a quick and easy snack to grab or a nice dessert at home, you’re going to love this apple fritter recipe. The BEST part is that I had everything for the recipe except apples, so that’s always a bonus. Now, I’m out of vanilla extract, but that’s not a problem! 🙂 Apple Fritters Edited

Here’s the easy and delicious recipe:


  • Vegetable oil, for deep-frying
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, cored and cut into small dice
  • Powdered sugar, for dusting, optional


Heat a couple of inches of vegetable oil in a heavy pot or Dutch oven over medium to medium-low heat until a deep-fry thermometer inserted in the oil registers 340 degrees F.

In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs with a fork, then add the milk, melted butter and vanilla. Gently fold the dry and wet ingredients together until just combined (do not over-mix). Fold in the apples, adding enough to make a very chunky batter.

Drop heaping tablespoons of batter into the hot oil, 6 to 8 at a time. Fry until golden brown, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove and drain on paper towels. Dust generously with powdered sugar and serve warm with sausage and bacon!

I’ve even added it to a printable version for you:
