Recipe: Apple Fritters

Here’s something completely different! These apple “fritters” can end up coming out closer to apple-packed pancakes, but either way, they’re an awesome, autumn brunch treat.

Ingredients

  • 6 apples (any kind should work, but semi-hard baking apples seem to work great! Try McIntosh or Cortland)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons of melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 3 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon of confectioners sugar

Steps

  1. Chop up the apples into smallish pieces, around the size of a nickel seems to work best. To be very specific, we’ve been using an apple slicer that slices an apple into 8 wedges, then cutting each wedge into six smaller bits, cutting once along the long side and twice across the width.
  2. Dust the cinnamon over the chopped apples and mix well.
  3. In a buttered pan, cook the apples until a bit softened.
  4. While the apples are being prepared, start the batter by whisking the two eggs and 1/2 cup milk together.
  5. Stir in the 1 cup of flour, then add the 2 tbsp of melted butter, 1 tsp of baking powder, and 3 tbsp of sugar. Mix well, then let sit for a few minutes.
  6. After both the apples and batter are prepared, mix together in a large bowl.
  7. In a hot, buttered pan, dollop the batter + apple mixture in small batches of about 4 fritters of around 3-4″ diameter each. Cook until lightly browned on each side, flipping halfway through, and fully cooked throughout. Recipe makes about 16 fritters.
  8. Once done cooking, immediately dust the fritters with confectioner’s sugar until well covered.
  9. Enjoy!
