Apple Fritters – learn how to make easy homemade apple fritters from scratch.
Apple Fritters are one of the most popular childhood desserts. These little “doughnuts” are actually apple rings dipped in pancake-like batter and quickly fried. They are the best eaten warm, sprinkled with some powdered sugar and cinnamon, while their coating is still crispy. If you happen to have some left-overs, they can be served for breakfast as well.
This recipe for apple fritters contains no yeast, since the batter uses baking powder to make the dough pillow-soft.
- You don’t need to use rum as I did, but I do recommend it since alcohol helps batter not to soak too much oil during frying process.
- Fry fritters in enough oil so that they float.
- Be sure do drain fritters after frying on paper towels.
Apple Fritters can be served with Brandy Butter (Hard Sauce).

OMG, I just found your site, and these are what my Mom and Grandma always made and called Apple Fritters. NOT the doughnut type most people know and love. We just never submersed them to fry them, just fried them in a buttered pan. We also put cinnamon sugar on top.
