Apple Fritter Bites

Apple Fritter Bites, chopped apples mingled in a sweet dough that is fried in bite size pieces and then dunked in a thick vanilla glaze.  They are little bites of heaven.


This is the second Apple Fritter recipe I have posted.  This recipe is more about how many it makes and the size of the fritter.  It makes around a dozen or so and comes together really quick.  Just the right amount to make for my husband and I....coffee and Apple Fritters go together, don't you think?


These were real good.  Although, I think the next time I make them, I am going to double the apples.  We like them real applety....Is that a real word...he he!


Apple Fritter Bites
Adapted from: Seemingly Greek

Ingredients:
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cup chopped apple, (can use granny smith, gala, and rome apples) pea size
  • 1 cup powered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons milk or half and half
  • oil for frying
Directions:
In a medium bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt; set aside. In a small bowl, stir together milk, egg, vanilla, and butter until egg is mixed well. Pour into dry ingredient and just stir until all ingredient are mixed; add apples and fold in gently. Heat oil around 365 degrees and drop in oil with a small cookie scooper being careful not to over crowd. Once in the grease bubbles, turn fritters over and flatten a little and fry until golden brown. It takes about 35 seconds on each side on this size. Adjust cooking time on size of the fritter and the temperature of the oil.

In a small bowl, mix together powdered sugar and milk until smooth and creamy; set aside.  When golden brown, remove the fritters from the hot oil and lay on a sheet pan lined with paper towels.  When slightly cooled, dip in the glaze and place on a wire rack over a sheet pan to let the excess drip off.  Eat warm.  Enjoy!

Cook's Note: I had to flatten mine a little to get them done before they browned too much. I only heated enough oil that the fritters did not float to much.

  15. I am so excited about making these! they are my favorite kind of apple indulgence and I too will increase the apples inside! we have a local grocery store with a phenomenal bakery where we get their 8" diameter apple fritters on Saturday mornings. Only thing is, there are NO apples in them. They are so good though. Making my own now but I will make them small!

  17. Thank You! I'm so glad I found this! My granddaughter and I often bake together and Monkey Bread of all varieties have been done and she (who is 10) told me last week that we needed to make apple fritters the next time she spends the night! Now I'm ready -- seriously! Thank you!

  20. These are seriously amazing! I'm in Australia and have been dying for something fall! (originally from PA) These definitely hit the spot! I added a little over 2 cups of apples to mine to take your note; you're right, so good! I used Pink Lady apples so they were a bit sweeter than, say, a red delicious etc. but amazing nonetheless. Thanks for this! I will definitely be making more of these :)

  23. You mentioned wanting to double the amount of apples in this recipe. Is the 1 1/2 cups called for in the recipe already doubled, or would you increase it to 3 cups?
