Make sure to gather all the ingredients and follow the simple instructions for a perfect batch of these tempting fritters.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups finely chopped apples (peeled and cored)
  • Vegetable oil for frying


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and ground cinnamon. Mix well to ensure even distribution of dry ingredients.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and vanilla extract until well blended.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps are okay.
  4. Gently fold in the chopped apples, ensuring they are evenly distributed throughout the batter.
  5. In a deep skillet or frying pan, heat about 2 inches of vegetable oil over medium-high heat until it reaches 350°F (175°C).
  6. Using a spoon or ice cream scoop, carefully drop spoonfuls of batter into the hot oil. Fry the fritters until golden brown on both sides, approximately 3-4 minutes per side.
  7. Remove the fritters using a slotted spoon and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to absorb any excess oil.
  8. Allow the fritters to cool slightly before serving. Optionally, dust them with powdered sugar or cinnamon for an extra touch of sweetness.

Tips and Variations:

  • Experiment with different apple varieties for varied flavors and textures.
  • Serve the fritters with a side of caramel sauce or whipped cream for added decadence.
  • If you prefer a healthier option, try baking the fritters in a preheated oven at 375°F (190°C) for about 15-20 minutes, turning them halfway through.

Enjoy these Big Apple Fritters as a delightful treat for breakfast, brunch, or dessert!
