Homemade Apple Fritters Recipe via Seemingly Greek
1 heaping cup of flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1-2 tsp cinnamon (depending on how much you like cinnamon)
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp butter, melted
1/3 cup milk + more if needed
1-1 1/2 cups chopped apple (any variety)
oil for frying
milk & powdered sugar glaze for dipping or just powdered sugar for dusting
(about 1 cup powdered sugar + 1 T milk or more)
Mix all dry ingredients together, slowly add the wet ingredients minus the apple. Carefully mix until well combined but not overly beat, gently fold in apple pieces. The batter should be the consistency of a light cake mix. Once the oil is ready (when a test drop of dough floats to the top of the oil, a drop of water sizzles, or a piece of white bread browns in 60 seconds) then using a cookie scooper or soup spoon, place a 4-5 balls of dough into the oil. Be careful not to overcrowd and watch carefully for the underside to turn golden brown, then gently flip over and continue frying until done. I cooked mine about 35 seconds per side, but they were the size of golf balls – adjust cooking times based on size of fritters and temperature of your oil, ideally around 365° F. It is always a good idea to test one to ensure it comes out like you are expecting.
NOTE: Make sure to use the full 1.5 cups of chopped apples. It will seem like you have too much in your batter, but it’s not. You want each fritter to have enough apple pieces inside.☺
