Course Breakfast
Author Red Ape Cinnamon


  • 1 heaping cup all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • dash salt
  • 1-2 tsp cinnamon depending on how much you love cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp butter melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup milk plus more if needed
  • 1-1/2 cups chopped apple your favorite kind for eating, peanut sized or smaller
  • oil for frying
  • Milk and powdered sugar glaze:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp milk or more


  • Mix all dry ingredients together, slowly add the wet ingredients minus the apple.
  • Carefully mix until well combined but not overly beat, gently fold in the apple pieces. The batter should be the consistency of a light cake mix.
  • Once the oil is ready (when a test drop of dough floats to the top of the oil, a drop of water sizzles, or a piece of white bread browns in 60 seconds)
  • Using a cookie scooper or soup spoon, place a 4-5 balls of dough into the oil.
  • Be careful not to overcrowd and watch carefully for the underside to turn golden brown, then gently flip over and continue frying until done.
  • About 35 seconds per side (golf ball sized) adjust cooking times based on size of fritters and temperature of your oil, ideally around 365°F.
  • Always a good idea to test one to ensure it comes out like your are expecting.
