Homemade apple & cinnamon fritters


I´ve been figuring what kind of recipe starbucks uses for their delicious apple fritters. I kind of gave up on finding a good recipe because I´ve only found lots of yeast dough recipes which didn´t seem to turn out like the ones I know.  Thanks to my aunt who now showed me an incredibly delicious and easy recipe for apple & cinnamon fritters. Its batter is combined with apples and fried for a couple of minutes.  Last they are glazed so these fritters are some really soft but crunchy on the outside and sweet tasting treats.  I had some of them glazed and some plain dusted with powdered sugar…



  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 & 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 & 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. vanilla sugar
  • 2 tbs. of melted butter
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 apples, peeled and diced
  • 2 inches of vegetable oil in a large sized pot

Start off with heating your vegetable oil to fry your fritters in on low- medium temperature (so it can heat slowly). Combine all dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, vanilla sugar and salt. Also combine all wet ingredients in another bowl: Whisk eggs, add milk and melted butter. Stir well. (Eggs might cause little lumps, so you might want to sift these from the liquid). Combine wet ingredients to dry ingredients using a spatula and stir until incorporated. Fold in diced apples. You can test if the vegetable oil is hot enough to fry the fritters by using the other end of a wooden spoon. Simply stick the wooden spoon in your vegetable oil and make sure little bubbles rise. If so your ready to fry your apple fritters.


I used a cookie scoop for scooping little bite sized fritters. Scoop each fritter batter into hot vegetable oil ( I fried 4 at a time) and let them fry until golden brown, turning them now and then. Use a thong to remove your fritters from the oil. You can either let them  rest on paper kitchen towels or on top of a wire rack allowing the grease  to drain (picture above). Fry the rest of your  batter and after finishing prepare the glaze…


  • 1 & 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-4 tbs. milk

Combine powdered sugar and milk until well combined. Pour glaze over apple cinnamon fritters using a tablespoon.

Have fun eating those guys they´re sticky but soo delicious!

  1. I’ve been looking for a yeast-free recipe for apple fritters for ages, I ‘ll have to give this one a go. Beautiful photos as always 🙂

  2. Looks so good and I like how they’re smaller than what is sold in bakeries. (not that I wouldn’t eat five of this size in one sitting, haha) Am enjoying your space–seems we share the same food philosophy 🙂 Appreciate your visit to food for fun’s cake pop post. Nice to meet you!
