When it comes to trying out simple apple desserts, you'll be happy to know how stupidly easy this Light, fluffy Apple Fritters recipe is. These sweet doughnut-like apple treats are made by creaming the sugar and eggs along with other ingredients until it all blends in well together and then deep-fried. When they’re ready, they will have a beautiful golden brown tint with crispy edges and then served with apple cider glaze. If you don’t have the time to make the glaze, you may drizzle some maple syrup on top, or coat them with cinnamon or vanilla sugar as well. Another great alternative in the place of apple cider glaze is a caramelized vanilla sugar glaze. The cooked apple inside tastes divine with soft and fluffy fried dough on the outside. Since these apple fritters tend to soften as they sit, it's recommended to serve them immediately after making them, or they will turn too soggy due to the moisture in the apples. Also when you’re combining the ingredients, do not over mix so that they come out fluffy. You can make these fritters in no time if you want to serve them for breakfast.

In this recipe, you can replace the milk with homemade buttermilk for better texture by mixing one cup of milk with a tablespoon of vinegar. Just mix the two and let it sit for about five minutes and the curdled milk that you notice is the buttermilk that you have just made. You may also use a gluten-free flour or try the readymade buttermilk pancake flour as well. Another important trick to prevent the apples from turning brown is to drown the apple pieces in lemon juice. The lemon juice will prevent the oxidation of apple pieces and will also add a citrus taste that is not too overpowering. In case you don’t have lemon juice readily available, you can keep the apple bits soaked in a bowl of water. When you’re ready to use the apple bits, just strain the water off and combine them in the batter as usual. For making this recipe with other flavors, don’t restrict yourself to just apple fritters. You can make this recipe using all kinds of fruit like pineapple, cherries, strawberries, blueberries, etc. Apples are full of vitamin B6 and C with high dietary fiber and no saturated fats or cholesterol. With numerous health benefits that come from the nutrition in apples, it is hard not to use them in desserts.

If you don't have a fryer at home, you can use any deep dish with a hard bottom that is available for frying. Always ensure that you have the right tools like tongs or a deep-fry spoon to extract the food from the hot oil. Maintain a good amount of distance while retrieving the fried food from the hot oil to prevent any mishap. Be mindful of choosing the right frying oil with a higher smoke point such as Peanut, soybean, coconut or sunflower oils. To prevent any spillovers, fill the frying pot with oil no more than half or just until a small batch of food sinks completely in the oil.
