Apple Fritters

Apple Fritters

2 cups all purpose flour
pinch of salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 1/4 cups buttermilk
2 eggs, separated
1 1/2 cups finely diced tart apples 

Vegetable Oil for Frying

Powdered sugar 
Apple Juice

Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Set aside

In a small bowl mix together buttermilk and egg yolks and add to flour mixture. Stir just until mixed thoroughly.

Beat egg whites until stiff. 

Fold beaten egg whites gently into batter. 

Fold in finely diced apples.

Heat oil in heavy pan then drop batter by a tablespoon into hot oil. Cook one side until golden brown then flip over and cook backside until golden. 

Remove hot fritters and allow to drain on rack with paper towels beneath. 

Now mix powdered sugar and apple juice in a small bowl until it is the consistency of thin icing.

Now dip warm fritter in icing flipping to coat both sides.

Return iced fritter to rack for any excess icing to drain and icing to set.

One very large wooden spoon to guard your fritters from marauding family members long enough to take pictures.

I hid some to enjoy with my morning coffee : )

  1. LOL!!!!! Obviously the wood spoon held off your family members long enough to take the picture. I've brewed some fresh coffee, be right over, :-)

  2. I am so glad you posted this recipe! Have stepdaughter and grandsons coming to visit tomorrow.... this will be a wonderful treat for all of us.

  3. Luckily I have lots of buttermilk, eggs and apples! With rain coming this recipe will be perfect for this weekend. Yum!

  4. OMG, my favorite! You'll have to try them with some chocolate on them. I"m going to make these this weekend, my family will be so surprised. Thanks for the recipe.

  5. Your apple fritters look so good if I had been there it would have taken more than a wooden spoon to hold me off. Smile!! Glad you put the recipe in. I have been looking for a good apple fritter recipe and your looks just like the one I have been searching for.

  6. Wow! My mouth is watering. It's apple season here so this is just in time to try. Thank you so very much for the wonderful recipe and icing tutorial. Happy Friday!

  7. MMMMMM...MMMMMM......I think I smell them from here in Alabama. Thanks for posting!!

  8. Thanks for the recipe. I love your page by the way.

  9. I am so happy that I found your page and this recipe, I made this but used 2% milk instead of the buttermilk. My whole family loved it, thanks a lot for sharing.

  10. I am making these today! I posted a more doughy/doughnuty version last year, but at this moment I need quick! These will be perfect! Thank you!:)

  11. you don't say about how much powdered sugar you used to make enough icing to cover one batch of these? I had to go to the store and get the apples so I can make this for my family!

  12. hello...thank you for sharing your recipe!! I made these scrumptious fritters today! I used 1/4 apple cider and 1 cup buttermilk, I also used apple cider in the glaze. My family loved them! yummy!!!

  13. I made your apple fritters yesterday..They were great!!! I wish you could have seen my husbands face when he tasted them---pure pleasure...

  14. Mmm shall have to try

  15. This may be a silly question- Do you drop a few tablespoons on top of or near each other to make one fritter or is one heaping tablespoon enough to make one fritter? This is my first time frying! Thank you in advance.

  16. good question i was wondering the same thing.

  17. I have an odd question but in a household where greasy foods cause heartburn..can these be baked instead of fried?

  18. These look amazing!!! I am thinking of trying them this weekend!! I just need to get buttermilk. Have you ever done it with milk with lemon or vinegar? I can't wait to check out your other recipes!!!
