Packed with fresh apples, this awesome recipe is super delicious and is an excellent dessert or breakfast option for vegetarians. Good enough, this recipe is easy to prepare, coming together in just 30 minutes.
I am completely fascinated with apple recipes. But, let’s face it, who isn’t? After all, they keep producing more and more delectable apple-based recipes, each one seeming better than the last.
Apple fritters are one of my favorite apple recipes.
They are delectable deep-fried doughnuts stuffed with apples and cinnamon and topped with a simple three-ingredient glaze. These delicious Apple Fritters are simple and quick to make. In approximately thirty minutes, you can have them all.
They’ll be a hit with your family and friends, but make sure you save a few for yourself, or they’ll be gone before you know it. My children’s favorite recipes are these, and they can’t get enough of them! They’re always demanding that I make them, and they never leave any leftovers when I’m done.
Apple fritters are best enjoyed shortly after you cook them but they will stay up to two days covered loosely with paper towels in a brown paper bag.
Serve this with a warm glass of milk or any beverage of your choice. They’re excellent as breakfast and incredibly delightful as a dessert snack.
Tips and variations:
•You can use almond extract instead of vanilla extract.
•For the glaze, add a little cinnamon or apple pie spice to the confectioner’s sugar for the added flavor.
•Do not allow the oil gets too hot as it will burn your batter and leave it uncooked. Make sure you keep the temperature at a medium-low once it reaches 375 degrees.
