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!
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.
