Welcome back to #AppleWeek, where all week long favorite recipes for apples are shared and there is a giveaway for fantastic prizes going on. You can still sign up for the give away by going to the Welcome Page. Today I am sharing my recipe for apple tortas fritas.

This recipe I first made a plain version of with  a cooking group while exploring cuisine from Argentina. I liked it a lot, so when  it came time to decide which recipes to make for #AppleWeek, I couldn’t resist making this again  and sneaking some apple in there.

I  love apple fritters this time of year and lots of the local orchards will make those and sell them to their customers. Sometimes they are huge and almost a meal in itself.

How  are the Tortas Fritas?

These tortas fritas, or fry bread, are light and crisp, very much like a good sopapilla. Adding  the apple bits makes them ever so slightly thicker than the plain ones I made, but the flavor is ever so much better with the cinnamon. You know how it is with apples and cinnamon- they are a match made in heaven!

Lots of Recipes for Apple Week…and Beyond!

Don’t forget to  check out the recipe roundup beneath the recipe printout. Also, a gentle reminder to get yourself into the prize drawing which I have a  link to at the top of the page here that goes to the welcome page, or you can click the link  to the Applesauce Nut Bread below.

Thank you  for joining me all week long as we wind down September with the last of the apple recipes. Be sure to tune in this October for lots more yummy recipes, including ones for Choctoberfest and Halloween. You are going to  love it, I am sure!

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 5 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2/3 cup warm water
  • 1 cup finely diced dried apples


  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon


  • Stir together the flour, baking powder,  salt, cinnamon, ginger and cloves.
  • Separately,  stir together the melted  butter and warm water.
  • Combine the wet and dry mixtures.
  • Knead dough until well combined, then knead in the apple bits.
  • Divide dough  into twelve   pieces and roll  into a  "meatball" and place on silpat,  cover with plastic wrap, and let rest thirty minutes. (Resting the dough helps you  spread it out without it springing right back)
  • Stir together the sprinkle (sugar and cinnamon) in a bowl and set aside.
  • Heat oil about an inch deep  in  a skillet.
  • On silpat, press the dough ball with your hand to flatten it as much  as you can.
  • Make a hole in the very center.
  • Fry tortas in hot (but not smoking hot) oil a couple of minutes on each  side until golden, then drain on paper toweling.
  • Dredge tortas in the cinnamon sugar sprinkle while still warm.
