Grab a separate bowl, add the eggs and beat with a fork. Then add the melted butter, milk and vanilla.

Apple Fritters Recipe

Gently fold both the wet and dry ingredients together until combined. Don’t overmix! Fold in the diced apples. You will want a chunky batter so you can add more or less apples if you need to.

Apple Fritters Recipe

Add enough oil in your pan for around two inches deep. Heat the oil to medium-low heat. When the oil gets hot drop a tiny bit of batter onto the oil to see if it’s ready. If it sizzles and the batter rises to the top then you’re ready to make fritters! Turn down the heat if your batter burns quickly.

Apple Fritters Recipe

Start dropping several drops of batter into the hot oil… around teaspoon size or a little larger. Flip when they are floating well.

You don’t want them overcooked so watch them carefully. Mine took around two minutes to cook through.

Have a paper towel laid out on a plate to place your fritters. The paper towel will soak up any excess oil and that means less clogging of our arteries!

Now you can dust with the powdered sugar, glaze them or use the glaze for dipping.

Be sure you serve your fritters warm. No one wants a cold fritter!

You can even reheat them the next day for 6-8 minutes in the over at 350 degrees. I like mine fresh though!
