Apple Fritter Bites are a tasty treat that combines the sweet and tart flavors of apples with a crispy, golden-brown crust. These bite-sized treats are ideal as a snack, dessert, or even breakfast. They are simple to prepare and can be served with a sprinkle of powdered sugar or a drizzle of glaze.


  • Batter:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups apples, peeled, cored, and finely chopped (about 2 medium apples)
  • Frying:
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Glaze:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Prepare the Batter:
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
  • In another bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, vanilla extract, and melted butter.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
  • Fold in the finely chopped apples until evenly distributed.
  1. Heat the Oil:
  • In a large pot or deep skillet, heat about 2 inches of vegetable oil over medium-high heat until it reaches 350°F (175°C). Use a candy thermometer to monitor the temperature.
  1. Fry the Fritter Bites:
  • Using a small cookie scoop or spoon, carefully drop tablespoon-sized portions of batter into the hot oil, being careful not to overcrowd the pot.
  • Fry the bites for about 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and cooked through.
  • Use a slotted spoon to remove the fritter bites from the oil and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to drain excess oil.
  1. Make the Glaze
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract until smooth. Adjust the consistency by adding more milk if necessary.
  1. Glaze the Fritter Bites:
  • While the fritter bites are still warm, dip each one into the glaze, or drizzle the glaze over the top.
  • Place the glazed fritter bites on a wire rack to set.
  1. Serve:
  • Serve the apple fritter bites warm, with additional glaze or a dusting of powdered sugar if desired.

Cooking Tips:

  • For extra flavor, add a pinch of ground cloves or allspice to the batter.
  • Ensure the oil is at the right temperature; too hot and the bites will burn, too cool and they will be greasy.
  • Use a candy thermometer to maintain a consistent frying temperature.
