Big Apple Fritters

Here’s a simple recipe for Big Apple Fritters:


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 large apples, peeled, cored, and sliced into 1/4-inch thick rings (such as Granny Smith or Honeycrisp)
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • Powdered sugar, for dusting (optional)
  • Caramel sauce or vanilla ice cream, for serving (optional)


  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon until well combined.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs lightly. Then add the milk and melted butter, and whisk until combined.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Do not overmix; it’s okay if there are a few lumps in the batter.
  4. Heat vegetable oil in a deep fryer or a large, deep skillet to 350°F (175°C).
  5. Dip each apple slice into the batter, coating it completely, and allow any excess batter to drip off.
  6. Carefully place the battered apple slices into the hot oil, frying in batches to avoid overcrowding the pan. Fry for about 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and crispy.
  7. Once cooked, remove the fritters from the oil using a slotted spoon and transfer them to a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.
  8. Allow the fritters to cool slightly before serving. Optionally, dust with powdered sugar and serve with caramel sauce or vanilla ice cream for dipping or drizzling.
  9. Enjoy your delicious Big Apple Fritters!
Remember to exercise caution when frying and handling hot oil.
