This recipe is very similar to the outstanding apple fritters they serve at the Applewood Farmhouse Grill in Gatlinburg, Tenneessee. Be sure to serve them warm with some of your homemade Apple Butter.

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 3 minutes

Total Time: 33 minutes


  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoon butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups cake flour
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 1/2 cup chopped apples, skin-on
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • apple butter, optional


Preheat at least 2-1/2 to 3 inches of hot oil in a deep-fryer or pan to 325 degrees. Blend first four ingredients. In a separate bowl, combine baking powder, salt and flour with a wire whisk. Fold flour, zest and apples into wet mixture. Drop spoonfuls of batter into hot oil. Fry for about 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Lightly toss with sugar. Serve warm with apple butter, if desired.

Apple Butter, Member PassionateChef

This is a good recipie, but you MUST have the apple butter.. [Or Some Type Of Filling] If not the result is just dry pastry. Its good, but not very sweet. Add ALOT Of Sugarr.
