Homemade Apple Fritters

Crispy outside with a beautiful tender inside, these Homemade Apple Fritters are a perfect breakfast or brunch fall treat and I made them again this week to celebrate our last day of #AppleWeek!

Homemade Apple Fritters

I first made these homemade apple fritters the year we moved to Albany (2010). I used my Mom’s Homemade Apple Pie in a Jar filling in this recipe for the apple portion, and they turned out wonderfully! I adjusted the recipe slightly this time and added more baking powder to the recipe and that is what made the outside of the fritter crispier!

These are especially yummy with a little bit of pecan pumpkin maple topping to dip into, or you can just sprinkle with some cinnamon sugar or confectioners sugar. They are not super sweet to start, so a little bit of sugar on top of these homemade apple fritters is a good thing!

Most of you know I am not big on frying with hot grease. It’s kind of messy and much more fattening. However, some things you have to sacrifice for and these fritters are worth it. I used a smaller pan and not too much grease (just enough to cover the little donut sized balls of dough). It’s real important to keep control of your temperature when frying so I also always use my candy thermometer to make sure my grease doesn’t stray too far from the 350 degree mark.

    I have been looking forward to seeing these puppies ever since I saw the sneak peek picture! They look scrumptious! I too have an aversion to frying things… but am going to have to throw it out the window for a batch of these!

    I make fritters at least once every apple season and I certainly want to make your Mom’s pie filling so this will be my fritter recipe this Fall.

    These sound perfect for a cool, fall morning. My family likes to make a big “breakfast” at some point on Sundays (it is served for actual breakfast but sometimes dinner after church or supper at night) and I think this would be a hit with my family.
