Simple Apple Fritters
This simple apple fritters recipe is one of the easiest doughnuts you will try because the mixture is more like a very thick pancake batter rather than a yeast dough. Instead of the fritters being cooked as cakes in a pan, however, they are fried into golden doughnuts. These simple apple desserts also involve a luscious glaze to coat their exteriors.
This apple recipe is ideal for whatever apple trees you want to use. The fritters don’t cook very long so a soft-fleshed apple, like Macintosh, should hold up well in the fritters. If a sour apple is desired for your fritters recipe, use an apple like Golden Delicious. Alternatively, if you prefer your apples sweeter, choose Cortland or another sweet apple for the best results. The design of these miniature doughnuts can be switched up as well; instead of folding diced apple into your batter, consider dipping apple rings into the mixture instead for a ring-shaped doughnut.
