Our Favorite: Delicious Old Fashioned Apple Fritters

By Sharon Prudhomme~

This recipe is a great recipe for fall get-togethers and parties and a delicious fondue type treat.

Guests spear their own apple chunks, dip into batter and fry in a hot fondue pot with oil or a Fry Daddy.

When I was a young girl, my father would make these for the whole neighborhood on a cold winter afternoon while mom made tons of hot cocoa. The entire neighborhood would come back from the lake and enjoy these after ice-skating.


Apples (softer varieties are best-granny smith, golden delicious) peeled, cored and cut into chunks
1-2 C flour
milk-enough to make a pancake batter-like consistency
sugar or Sweet ‘n Low-2 tablespoons or 1-2 packs(to taste)
*optional-nutmeg and or cinnamon
oil for frying
powdered sugar (10X)
1 egg

Whisk all ingredients together until completely blended and smooth. Heat oil in a deep pan or use Fry Daddy. Using tongs, dip apple chunks into batter-coat – allow excess to drip off and gently lower into the oil. Be careful not to drop and splash hot oil! When coated pieces are floating and golden brown, remove with a slotted spoon and place onto paper towels or newspaper to drain. Have powdered sugar in a shaker and shake a good amount over all the pieces. Yum!!  This is always a fun group activity that brings friends and family together. Smiles abound with this one!!
