Here’s a super quickie for you all! These Easy Homemade Apple Fritters were are spur of the “I really want some fritters,” moment, kind of delicious creation and they were sooo tasty I had to share!
I found this recipe from the super talented I Am Baker and when she says this recipe is easy, she’s right. This recipe was, I have about 30 minutes left before nap time is over, kind of easy!
We happened to have honeycrisp apples, but I definitely want to try this with granny smith, next time! And trust, me, there will be a next time (which might be tomorrow).
A quick fry and then a coat of a super simple vanilla glaze and you’re golden. As golden as these soft, fluffy, pillows of apple fritter goodness.
