Apple Fritters with Caramel Sauce
Happy Monday friends!!
How was your weekend? I hope you had a great one. If these fried goodness of apple fritters are any indication, I had a good weekend. While everyone was excited about the return of football, I was busy with fall activities. We went apple picking with some friends, I had my first PSL and made these homemade apple fritters. Can you tell I was in a fall state of mind despite being 80 degrees all weekend? I am not sorry.
Apple fritters are a must whenever we attend a Fall festival, which there are quite a few around here. It was about time I tried them at home. After a long day out at the apple orchard with Elliott and some friends kids, I was too exhausted to start my apple baking. Apple fritters were the easiest things I could think of and went for it.
They are so easy to make. Pretty much just fresh apples dredged in batter, fried and coated in cinnamon sugar!! They are so delicious warm. Perfectly crisp on the outside and sweet and gooey on the inside. Drizzle with some caramel sauce for an extra level of awesome like I did on a few. The hubs and Elliott LOVED them and I am sure your family will enjoy them too. You need to try these apple fritters
With a bag full of apples remaining after these apple fritters, I did a lot of apple baking this weekend and I am SO excited to share them with you in the coming weeks.

It sounds like you had a great weekend! I can’t wait to go apple picking and make lots of treats like pies, muffins and of course these fritters 😉
Yes it was fun! Hope you get to go apple picking soon 🙂
Still recovering from Sunday football, Dallas loss to the Giants and I needed a pick me upper perfect timing. I’m looking forward to apple picking and the beautiful foliage and course, these apple fritters. Thanks for sharing, looking forward to the weeks to come! 🙂
Hhahah the Giants fans around me were super happy though.
I am definitely in a fall state of mind as well! Now if only the weather would cooperate! haha These fritters sound soooo good!
Hahha I know the weather is taking its sweet time. BuT i am sure we will be complaining soon.
I love the giant chunk of apple in these — way better than the store bought ones! Yum!
Yes I agree!!
80 degrees! Lucky gal–though we’ve been having comparable weather, so I can’t complain haha. Glad you’re still in the mood to celebrate fall already–these look AMAZING!
Always jealous of your good weather lady.
Hi Zainab, I have always wanted to make apple fritters but thought they were more complicated than your recipe suggests. Yay! I was wondering if you could tell me how high you heated your oil? When deep frying I have always used a thermometer, 350? Looking forward to trying these soon. Thanks
Hi Trisha! I don’t usually use a thermometer to check the oil. I use my mother’s old wives trick of throwing in a bit of flour or onions into the heated oil to see when it is ready. I would think 350 is HOT and if it has always worked for you, I would go with it 🙂 Let me know how they turn out.
These apple recipes look divine! I am definitely going to make the doughnuts. Thank you!
