Makes 12


  • 2 large granny smith apples peeled and diced.
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 3 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 ½ cups bread flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 2 large eggs

For the glaze:

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup milk


  1. In a frying pan on medium heat, add butter, diced apples and 1 tsp cinnamon. Cook until apples are tender. Set aside to cool.
  2. In a medium bowl, prepare your glaze by mixing milk and icing sugar together. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, brown sugar, remaining cinnamon, and salt.
  4. Once combined, add milk, eggs, and the cooled cooked apples. They should be about room temperature before adding them to your mixture. Mix until just combined with a whisk, being careful not to over-mix.  Set aside.
  5. Prepare a pot on medium-high heat with grapeseed or vegetable oil for frying. The oil should be about 1.5-2 inches deep.
  6. Once the oil is hot, spoon 1/3 cup amounts of batter into the pot. Fry 3-4 fritters at a time. Cook for approximately 1.5-2 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
  7. Remove the fritters from the oil onto a plate with a paper towel to absorb excess oil. Dunk the fritter in the glaze immediately and ensure that all sides are covered. Remove from the glaze and place on a wire rack to cool and to provide room for the excess glaze to drip.
  8. Once your fritters have cooled, you can enjoy them immediately or store them in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
