Apple fritters bring back memories from various times in my life and all are fond memories! From family vacations, county fairs in the summertime, a small country store near our house that made them in house and were always fresh and served in a paper bag, to my mom making them for us as a treat. There is nothing like a fresh, warm, perfectly glazed apple fritter!


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/3 cup milk
2 eggs
3 tablespoons applesauce
2 large Granny Smith or Honey Crisp apples peeled, cored, and diced
Canola oil for frying


2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

How To Make Big Apple fritters:
Place cooling racks over baking sheets covered in wax paper. Set aside.

Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in medium bowl.

Make a well in the center and add 1/3 cup milk, eggs, and applesauce.

Stir just to combine.

Fold in apples.

Heat 1 ½ – 2 inches of oil in heavy cast iron skillet, Dutch oven, or deep fryer to 375°F.

Drop about 1/4 cup of batter per fritter into hot oil; spreading it out as you drop.

Cook each side until golden brown; approximately 2 minutes per side.
