Apple Fritters Recipe

Make apple fritters at home to celebrate fall! This recipe for fried apple fritters is simple and easy to make. They have a cinnamon-vanilla glaze on top.

– 3 to 4 cups canola oil – 3 cups diced Fuji apples peeled, cored, and diced - approx 3 large apples or 4 medium apples (375 grams) – 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice – 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour spooned & leveled (190 grams) – ⅓ cup granulated sugar (65 grams) – 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder – ½ teaspoon salt – ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon – ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg


– ½ cup whole milk (120 ml) – 1 large egg lightly beaten – 3 tablespoons unsalted butter melted and slightly cooled (45 grams) – 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


HEAT oven to 350°F (180°C). An 8-inch circular cake pan needs nonstick spray and parchment paper. Butter and chocolate are diced in a large microwave-safe bowl. 


Blend chocolate every 20–30 seconds in the microwave. Cool for 5 minutes. Add vanilla, sugar, and cooled chocolate before adding eggs.


 Whisk cocoa, espresso, baking, and salt in the bowl. Avoid overmixing batter. Smooth cake batter in buttered pan using knife or spoon. 


Bake on the center rack for 28–33 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out largely clean with moist crumbs. After baking, pan-cool 5–10 minutes.


After carefully inverting the cake, let it cool on another cooling rack. Top cake with whipped cream, chocolate ganache, or confectioners' sugar! Vanilla ice cream instead.
