Our Best Apple Fritter Recipes
Crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside, apple fritters are the irresistibly sweet way to serve up this favorite fall fruit. Make an old fashioned batter and deep fry the fritters for a classic taste, or up the ante by serving them with a drizzle of caramel sauce or sprinkling of powdered sugar. You can't go wrong with apple fritters as an autumnal treat.
Apple Cider Fritters
These tender, sweet fritters deliver full-on fall flavor, and couldn't be easier to make. Just be sure you're starting with clean, fresh oil for frying so that the fritters don't pick up any stale flavors, and use a candy thermometer to closely monitor your oil temperature. Going lower than 360 degrees will leave you with greasy fritters, but go over 370 degrees, and you run the risk of over-browning or burning. Finish the fritters off with a sweet creamy glaze and serve with coffee for a delightful autumn treat.
