Ingredients
  • 2 large Granny Smith apples, peeled and diced
  • 1¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1½ teaspoons apple pie spice
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup apple cider
  • 1½ teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 – 4 cups peanut oil
For the glaze:
  • 1 cup confectioner’s sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider
Instructions
  1. Line a rimmed baking sheet with paper towels in preparation for draining fritters once they are cooked.
  2. Whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, and apple pie spice in a medium bowl. Add diced apples and toss in the flour mixture. Whisk together milk, eggs, and vanilla in a 2-cup measuring cup. Stir carefully into flour mixture with a rubber spatula, just until well-combined.
  3. Pour oil into deep skillet or Dutch oven over medium heat and bring to 350º F. Using two tablespoons, place 5 to 6 scoops at a time into heated oil. Cook apple fritters about 3 minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through.
  4. Remove from the Dutch oven with a slotted spoon and place onto prepared pan for draining.
For the glaze:
  1. Whisk together confectioner’s sugar, milk, and apple cider until smooth. Spoon 1 teaspoon of glaze over each apple fritter and allow to rest about 8 to 10 minutes before serving.
