  • Prep apples with a Zyliss apple corer


Fritter Ingredients:

  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup Bob's Red Mill fine crystal cane sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons buttermilk powder
  • 1/3 cup apple cider
  • 1 large organic egg
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon Taylor & Colledge vanilla paste
  • 1 medium Envy apple peeled cored and finely chopped

Glaze ingredients:

  • 1-1/2 cups sifted powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon T&C vanilla paste
  • 2-3 tablespoons apple cider


  • Stir together the flour, cane sugar, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and buttermilk powder in a mixing bowl.
  • Separately, whisk the apple cider with the egg, oil and vanilla paste.
  • Fold in finely chopped apples.
  • Heat vegetable oil several inches deep in a large skillet to 375F (use a candy thermometer to check and control the temp).
  • Drop batter by tablespoonfuls into hot oil (I used that size of a cookie scoop) and fry for 4-5 minutes until browned and cooked through in the center (test the first one to be certain).
  • Drain on paper toweling or a rack.
  • Whisk up the glaze ingredients and toss fritters individually in the glaze, tapping lightly to remove excess.
  • Let set up to dry on a wire rack.
