RR's Apple Fritters

We had some softening apples that I was going to turn into a crisp or pie but then I got to thinking and that's kind of boring. Not that those desserts aren't delicious; they are and I love them. I just wanted to look for something different to make with apples and I found the answer in a Rachel Ray cookbook:

4 medium sized apples, washed
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 cup Bisquik
3/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
Vegetable oil
Core and slice apples into 1/4-inch rings. Place in a bowl and add lemon juice. Coat the rings with the juice to prevent browning.

In a large pot or deep saucepan, add 1-inch of vegetable oil and heat over medium high heat. To test temperature of oil: oil is ready when a 1-inch cube of bread browns nicely in 40 seconds.
In a medium bowl, mix Bisquik, water and nutmeg.
Coat a few rings of apples in Bisquik mix. Place one ring at a time in the hot oil. Let fry 4-5 minutes until brown and the apple is soft. Put fried rings on a paper towel-lined plate to absorb excess oil. You'll have to do a few batches to fry all the apples.
Serve warm, sprinkled with powdered sugar.

You can flip the fritters in the oil to get each side evenly brown but it's not necessary.

These were a yummy treat! Really make sure you sop up as much of the oil as you can with paper towels. These would be good topped with vanilla ice cream too. It's such an easy recipe! I used Gala apples but Rachel recommends golden delicious.


  1. These look delicious! We usually make a batch of apple fritters in the fall when it's apple season around here, but after seeing yours we might have to make an early spring time batch :) I bet yours were wonderful, great job!

  2. These look amazing. I bet my dad would just looove them! Thanks for the idea! :)
