Apple fritters..scrumptious sweet temptations!

By 17/10/2014

Feeling naughty? Feeling like something finger licking good on the go? Then get your pan out and start whipping; apple fritters are just a good treat, easy to make and always warmly welcomed by adults and children.

You can add cinnamon in the sugar if you like and they are delicious with vanilla ice cream.

I have been given so many apples by a friend of mine and I really cannot eat them all. I cooked them and enjoyed them with runny honey (and I love that!) and yesterday I baked a cake + I made these fritters. Any more ideas anyone? I will have to give them away. There is only so much fruit you can eat.


  • Prep Time : 15 minutes
  • Cook Time : 5 minutes



Peel, core and cut the apple into rings. They should be roughly 1/2 cm thick. Toss them in lemon juice to prevent them from oxidizing and going brown

Coat the apple rings in sugar

Separate the egg.  Whip the yolk with the flour, add the vanilla extract and the milk. Whip the egg white with the salt and add it to the batter; you should get a smooth consistency without lumps.

Heat some oil in a pan until very hot.

Coat the apples in the batter then fry them in the hot oil until golden and crisp.

Use a slotted spoon to drain onto kitchen paper, then sprinkle with icing sugar (add cinnamon if you like).

Enjoy warm!

    I’m feeling really naughty, Alida after seeing these little bundles of absolute goodness! Oh my heavens your Apple Fritters look scrumptious! Thank you so much for sharing…

    How fortunate someone gave you so many apples. My daughter had the same delicious “problem.” Have you ever made apple butter? It’s really yummy and comes in quite handy especially when cooking pork. I’ve also seen quite a few recipes for mixing up all the ingredients for apple pie and then freezing it! I’ve heard so many good things about it. I’m actually going to try it myself. Let me know if you want the link. I think it’s on my pinterest board. Have FUN with all those apples Alida…

    • Alida

      That sounds interesting. I have never made apple butter. I will take a look at your pinterest board. Let me know how it goes if you end up making it!

    These fritters look just gorgeous Alida. They remind me of my childhood. So yummy with cinnamon and sugar! I often put baked or roasted apples in flapjacks, which last for ages. Apple pies are also fab for using lots up!

    Sono troppo buone le mele in pastella e fritte, le tue sono perfette, bravissima! Un abbraccio carissima Alida!

    What a lovely idea Alida. I too have a ton of apples, but I’ve not tried making apple fritters before. I’ll make a load of apple puree as it keeps quite well jarred up in the fridge and I can use it in cakes later in the year and also on cereal and porridge, I expect I’ll also make some apple jelly. Other than that, I have no more ideas …. although, apple scones are rather good …

    You wanted ideas on how to use apples up. I have three trees in my orchard. I use my apples for apples sauce with red hots. It turns a beautiful red color, the light cinnamon flavor delights children and adults alike.

    • Alida

      Oh that’s sounds lovely Linda. Apples and cinnamon just go hand in hand. I have never made a proper apple sauce. It is a luxury to be able to make a sauce with homegrown apples.The smell in your house must have been wonderful!
