  1. where is the recipe for apple fritters?


  1. My students tried this recipe for an art fair at our school. Here are some of their comments. "They were good." - Andrew "They were excellent." -Kathryn "They were crunchy." -Storm "They were the best things I've ever tried." -Justin
  2. Yum! We had these for dessert last night, with vanilla ice cream. They were so quick and easy to make. We rolled ours in sugar. I think next time I will double the recipe, maybe even sub bananas for the apples. Thanks for a great recipe.
  3. Not bad! The first batch I followed the directions as is and the batter was very thick, and it took some playing with heat settings to prevent from having them burnt on the outside and raw on the inside. Everyone liked them but they piled on the powdered sugar and maple syrup, so the second time I added 1/2c milk, 4 tbsp sugar, 1tsp cinnamon, 1/4tsp nutmeg and I chopped the apples in my processor with a tbsp of orange juice. Everyone raved about the second batch! Will definitely be again with the revisions. Thanks!
  4. We made apple fritters every fall for many years when our kids were young. This is close to the fritter recipe we remember. We doubled the amount of milk that the recipe called for to 2/3rd cup to make a batter that is like a thick pancake batter. After the first batch we increased the apples to a cup and a half instead of the one cup. Rather than adding teaspoon of batter for each fritter we use a tablespoon. With a couple tweaks of the recipe, the result is a perfect fritter. Friends and family raved about them. I do not believe adding more spices can make them tastier than they are.
  5. Easy and yummy! Doesn't take long at all to prep and cook. I added cinnamon to both the batter and dusting sugar and it was perfect!


I'm a "newbee" to this site, but not to cooking. I love great food and to share recipes and this site is great! I don't know where the information of a "fry cook" came from, but I would consider myself anything else but that :) A NYC girl originally, lived in London and Canada where I am now. Met lots of interesting people along life's way who taught me a great deal and enriched my life with their knowledge of cooking. With my children now adults, the family has doubled in size and my commitment to making memories to pass down to another generation inspires me to cooking. I find cooking a creative expression of one's personality and never tire of new challenges in the kitchen.
