TO MAKE THESE APPLE FRITTERS, YOU WILL NEED
Apples – Honeycrisp are a favorite (mainly because they are just an overall favorite apple) but Granny Smith is also great in this recipe. An apple that’s more crisp and tart will work best.
Lemon Juice – This helps to keep the apples from browning after they’ve been diced, but also helps highlight the acidity.
Flour, Baking Soda, and Sugar– You can use all purpose or a gluten free flour or nut flour. We have not made these with whole wheat flour.
Eggs, Milk, Butter – We usually use 2% milk but you can absolutely use whatever you have. Almond milk works great, too!
Cinnamon and Nutmeg – Just a pinch of nutmeg adds a great flavor. But you could also use a touch of apple pie spice!
Ground Ginger – Totally optional but a fun touch! I love the flavor ground ginger brings to sweet treats, I always use it in our homemade granolas.

HOW DO YOU MAKE THESE APPLE FRITTERS?
First peel, core, and dice apples (1/4-1/2 inch pieces). In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Make a well and add milk, egg, and applesauce; stir until combined.
Next, heat 1 1/2 inches of canola oil in a Dutch oven to 375 degrees. Pour 1/4 cup of batter into the hot oil, spread it a bit for even cooking, and fry for about 2 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels.
For the glaze, mix milk, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Dip fritters in the glaze, place on wire racks to dry then enjoy your freshly made Apple Fritters.
