These salted apple fritters use honeycrisp apples and flaked sea salt for a fall flavor explosion. These are the best treat ever!
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of freshly ground nutmeg
  • cup milk
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups peeled and chopped apples
  • vegetable or canola oil for frying
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • flaked sea salt for sprinkling
  1. Heat a few inches of oil in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. You want the oil to reach about 350 degrees Line a plate with paper towels.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. In a small bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, butter and vanilla. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry until just combined. Stir the chopped apples into the batter.
  3. Once the oil is hot, drop ¼ cups of batter into the oil, only doing 1 or 2 at a time, and fry until golden on both sides, about 3 to 4 minutes. Be sure to flip the fritter once or twice. Remove the fritters with a slotted spoon and place them on the paper towel to drain excess grease. Repeat with remaining batter.
  4. Once the fritters are all finished and slightly cool, dip them in the glaze. Place them on a sheet of parchment paper and immediately sprinkle with flaked salt. Serve!
  1. Whisk the sugar, vanilla and milk together until combined and smooth. If the mixture is too thick, add more milk 1 teaspoon at a time until it’s thin enough to dip the fritters.
