Fall is here in Montana. Everywhere you look there are signs of fall. The leaves changing, the apples ripening, the cooler weather. I have to tell you fall is my favorite season. There is just something about it that makes me want to bake and cook, and can and fry. Right now I have a laundry basket full of apples sitting on my kitchen table just waiting for me to find yummy things to put them in.

We harvested our apple trees this weekend. The smallest tree we have produced the most this year, so we have about half the harvest we did last year. Hopefully next year we will have more so I can make applesauce and apple pie filling. YUM! My kids go crazy for homemade applesauce. Truth be told so does their mom 😉

apple fritters2This morning after I dropped the kids at school I started making cinnamon-sugar apple chips in the dehydrator. The smell of apples and cinnamon really put me in the mood for something RIGHT now that contained apples and cinnamon. I looked through my recipe books and nothing struck my fancy. Then I remembered how easy Apple Fritters are to make so I was off and running. These are so simple to make yet so yummy.

In the past when I have made these with bigger chunks of apples my little kids have complained and picked them out. This time I decided to experiment and make the chunks less chunky. The kids really liked these better. For me I love the bigger chunks, but either way this recipe for Apple Fritters is good!

Apple Fritters

Apple Fritters


  • 2 c. all purpose flour
  • 2-1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 3/4 c. sugar
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 c. milk
  • 2 Tbsp. melted butter
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 medium tart apples, cored and cut into chunks
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Cinnamon Sugar
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. cinnamon


  1. Wash and core your apples – you can peel them also but I chose not to. I used my food processor to make them into smaller pieces, but if you want larger chunks you can do it by hand.
  2. Mix together in a large bowl the flour, baking powder, sugar, 2 tsp. cinnamon and the salt. In a separate bowl beat the eggs with the milk, butter and vanilla. Add into the flour mixture stirring just until mixed. Fold in the apple chunks.
  3. Heat about 2 inches of oil in a heavy bottomed pot or dutch oven until a deep-fry thermometer reads 340°. Drop spoonfuls into the hot oil in batches of 4-6. Fry for 5 minutes or until a nice brown – you may have to turn them. Remove to a paper towel lined plate. Sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar mixture. Enjoy!
