I have been making apple fritters since I was 14 (I am now 28), and I have tried SO many different recipes, from old Amish recipes to new modern ones. But these are the BEST fritters I have ever had, and the easiest! I cut the apples into bite size chunks and they were perfectly coated. I made my own self rising flour using Self-Rising Flour. I ignored my greedy eyes and dolloped large tablespoons of battered apple into about 3/4" of hot oil in my cast iron skillet, and they cooked up perfectly golden and melt in your mouth crisp on the outside, with a light, fluffy, moist but not soggy interior. I will be making these every week I am sure, thankyou SO much for sharing!!
PS I made a half recipe, and it was more than enough for myself and my twin 2 1/2 year old sons.
Wonderful recipe! My first time making apple fritters and won't be the last. Followed the directions exactly, except rolled them in cinnamon/sugar rather than confectioners... I didn't have any. Like another reviewer, I had no self-rising flour, so used Self-Rising Flour, since I can never remember the right amount of baking powder to add. Thanks for sharing a great recipe.
The only thing I would change on this recipe is that if you do not have a deep fryer, then make sure you use a heavy bottom pan to fry them in. Thin pans make the oil too hot, even at low setting. Made a second batch using a cast iron pan and they turned out wonderfully. Everyone loved them.
