Apple Fritters

Apple Fritters 6

Fall is going waaayyy too fast. That is the trouble with this time of year. It is one of my favorite baking/cooking seasons but there just isn’t enough time. I have a million Halloween recipes I’d love to try but Halloween is just about here and before I know it will be Thanksgiving. Just when I get into Thanksgiving baking/cooking it is Christmas! In order to post all of the Christmas cookie recipes I would like I’d have to start posting before Halloween. See what I mean? Not enough time!! Maybe we should just turn this blog into a cookie making blog. If not all year long, then maybe just between Halloween and Valentine’s Day.  Ughhh I love cookies!


I don’t know why I am talking about cookies though, this post is about donuts. Love donuts! These donuts are simple to make but taste amazing. I was a little afraid that the apples would be mushy but that was not the case. They still had a nice bite to them. Basically, they taste just like you would imagine fall to taste. Apples, cinnamon, nutmeg. All delicious fall flavors. Add some glaze and you basically have perfection!


Here is what you’ll need

Slice the apples into rings and remove the core

Combine ingredients for the batter and put the cake flour into a bowl

Dip the apples into the flour and then the batter

Fry until golden brown

Yummy fall treat!

Yummy fall treat!
