Wistful Weekend: Apple Fritter in 30 Minutes

Happy September 1st! My husband and I went to our local farmers market this morning and we came home with far more than originally planned. 2 bags more I should say. One of my favorite finds was fresh picked apples from our local orchard! I decided in honor of our transition into fall I would try this easy fritter recipe!

  • 1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 2 large apples of choice
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil + oil for cooking
  • Powdered sugar 
  • Caramel sauce
  1. Peal off the outside skin of both apples and dice into small chunks. This will take you the longest out of the whole recipe 
  2. Once apples are cut into chunks, add all ingredients into a large bowl except the powdered sugar and caramel sauce
  3. Pour just under 1" of oil into medium sized skillet
  4. Heat oil on low (make sure to not go past your low setting or the fritters will fry too fast)
  5. Once a drop of water sizzles in the hot oil it's ready for batter
  6. Depending on how many servings you want, start dropping batter dollops into oil. I used my mixing spoon as the measuring size which equaled about a half cup per fritter
  7. Leave each fritter for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes in the oil before flipping over to the other side
  8. Once fritter has been fried on both sides place on paper plate to cool
  9. When all fritters are done sprinkle with powdered sugar and drizzle in caramel sauce
  10. Serve warm!
*Tip* I suggest using a pasta scoop for flipping the fritters. It lets the oil drain through and causes less drips when transferring to the plate. Also, don't add caramel sauce until ready to be served or the fritters can get soggy

Enjoy your fall indulgence!

Stay Crafty!
