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.
This was the 1st time I have fried apples. They were very easy to put together and so delicious. I coated the apple wedges in cinnamon before dipping them in the batter. I dusted some in icing sugar and some in extra fine granulated sugar, we enjoyed the granulated sugar ones more.
Made this 2 times. Once I used milk the other I used soy milk. Both turned out great. I found I had to make smaller fritters (never did this before) so they would cook all the way through. I would probably add cinnamon or nutmeg or both next time just to be adventurous. :).
Amazing. These were so good. I followed the recipe as printed. Thanks for this great recipe!
Very good! I made the fritters bigger (flattened the dough first) and coated the apples in cinnamon. I fried them in a cast iron skillet at 250-300 degrees. Yummm! Thanks for this recipe!
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for posting this recipe! I don't get to visit the Applewood Farmhouse Restaurant in Servierville (or the newer location in Gatlinburg) as often as I'd like. But when I really get a craving for their fare, I make this recipe and Apple Julep (which they call an Applewood Julep). I feel almost like I'm in the Smoky Mountains!
These were very good and easy to make, I frosted with a maple cream cheese frosting and had rave reviews!!! Thank You for the Great Recipe!!
I woke up this morning with a craving for donuts. Didn't really want to spend the money or drive to the donut shop, so I decided to make something here. I have lots of apples, and absolutely adore apple fritters, so I went on a quest to find a recipe. This one sounded good, so I made it :) These were very good! I tossed the apples with 1 teaspoon cinnamon. They were very tasty! I used a medium sized (2 Tbsp) scoop and used that for dropping into the hot oil (350 degrees). I didn't count how many total I was able to make, because my family was eating them as fast as I could make them, but my guess is that with the larger scoop, I got 24 or so fritters.
