With the holidays coming around, creating the ultimate dessert is a necessity. These apple fritters are easy and quick and most of all are so tasty.


  • One teaspoon of apple pie spice
  • One and one fourth cup of flour
  • Two tablespoons of light brown sugar
  • One and a half teaspoon of baking powder
  • One fourth teaspoon of salt
  • One half teaspoon of cinnamon
  • One half cup of apple cider
  • One egg
  • One teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • One apple
  • One half cup of sugar

First, mix one and one fourth cup of flour, two tablespoons light brown sugar, one and a half teaspoons of baking powder, one fourth teaspoon of salt and one half teaspoon of apple pie spice.

In a different bowl, mix one half cup of apple cider with one teaspoon of vanilla extract and one egg. After mixing, add to the other bowl.

Next, peel and core one apple. Cut the apple into thin small slices and add to the mix.

Heat about one inch in height of oil in a pot and drop about one eighth cup of batter to the oil. Allow for it to fry for two-four minutes on low-medium heat. And follow the next step as they cook.

Mix one half cup of sugar with one half teaspoon of apple spice.

Once all of the batter is golden brown cooked, coat in the sugar and apple spice mixture.

Allow them to cool then serve. These are a family favorite in my household and are great for a sweet holiday treat.
