  • 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


  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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!


  • 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.
