Awesome Apple Fritters

"A FAVORITE treat from childhood. My mother always liked to prepare these delicious goodies for her three daughters. We could not wait until they were cool enough to eat. The cinnamon and nutmeg add to the flavor."

  1. We loved these! Just the right seasonings and sweetness with the powdered sugar! Wonderful fall smell and flavor. Thanks for sharing your mother's recipe.
  2. I have had company here and I made these for a brunch. They were eaten in about 2 seconds, and everyone LOVED them! I made half with sugar and cinnamon and half with a brown sugar glaze on the top. Both were AWESOME!
  3. I loved it, the recipe is very simple to use, it's easy on the wallet if you already have the oil needed.. I doubled the recipe, and ended up with about 32 of the fritters. I dished them out using #40 scoop, came out in almost perfect sized balls. I added banana, couldn't help it!
  4. Indeed, these are truly awesome!
  5. These are just the best homemade fritters!!! They are not like the really sweet glazed ones that you get in a donut shop. They have a light, lovely texture and is crispy on the outside. I sprinkled them with a mixture of icing sugar and cinnamon. Oh yes...they went quickly. Thank you for sharing!
