Apple Fritter Rings

Thin rings of apples are dipped into a sweetly seasoned cinnamon and nutmeg batter and then fried. Best served hot!

Apple Fritter Rings

Yay, it's apple season! Well, it's at least the beginning of apple season and you'd know it too if you follow any food blogs because apple recipes have been in abundance around the net. I love apples in cake, cobbler, in pie, baked, even simply sliced up and dipped in peanut butter - a treat I can certainly get easily carried away with.

Fritters are a fun way to enjoy apples for a change too, and while there are a couple of ways to make them, I especially love them fried in rings like this. I also love them in a drop style, deep fried fritter, similar to my corn fritters - those I'll do next.

They're super quick to make and really feature the apple when done in rings like this though. Once you've peeled and cored the apples, you slice them into thin rings and simply dip the rings into a very simple batter. I like the batter a bit more on the thin side, but if you prefer more puff to your fritter, just use less buttermilk or milk to form a thick wet batter.

I used my deep fryer, but these are very easily done in a skillet on the stove also.  Don't they just look like little apple donuts in that fryer?

Once fried, the batter is tender and soft, so don't expect crunchy here, and while the apples do cook, they still retain a little bit of bite to them. These are great on their own, sprinkled with granulated sugar, cinnamon sugar, or a dusting of powdered sugar. They are best warm, so eat them right away.

If you think this sounds yummy, I'd sure it if you'd click to pin it, tweet it, stumble it, or share it on Facebook to help spread the word - thanks!
