Apple Fritters

Updated: Aug 1, 2021

I have been seeing lots of posts about apple fritters on social media recently and I wanted to try to bring you a delicious recipe that comes together in under 30 minutes. You know me by now, I will try making dinner in as short a time as possible, because with both my busy schedule, I'm looking for easy recipes that the kids will enjoy.

These apple fritters were happily received by both my boys, even the little one who was sceptical as to why I would want to fry apples in the first place.

I prefer to fry these apple fritters until brown. Not golden. The golden rule for these fritters is, the more brown the better. They will stay crisper for longer. When they are golden fried then they tend to become soggy almost immediately. But as we fried them longer, they kept their shape and remained crispy for longer.

Another tip I wanted to share for these fritters was to only drizzle on the glaze, unless you have a crazy sweet tooth, control the amount of glaze you add to them. You can always add more, you can't take it away though right? So I usually just drizzle the glaze on top, then serve the rest of the glaze on the side for those who need more. And now onto the recipe:
