Apple Fritters with Caramel These Apple Fritters with Caramel should come with a warning. Do not eat while on a diet… of any sorts. I thought of an appropriate name and the first one that came to mind was: Death by Apple.

The Apple Fritters with Caramel should however be on your to-bake list if you want to spoil hubby or your kids or make up an edible gift for a neighbour.


I can think of few things more delicious than these fritters. Who can after all resist fritters of any sort. I make pumpkin fritters often during the winter.  The fritters themselves are not overly sweet, especially if you use a green or slightly sour apple. The caramel, however makes up for it. So make yourself a batch, share if you have to. Eat them warm accompanied with a steaming cup of coffee.

Apple Fritters with Caramel

Prep the following, before you start.

– fill a glass bowl with cold water – add the juice of 1 lemon – this is for the apple rings to prevent them from browning.

– mix the sugar and cinnamon in a flat bowl – it works better to dust the apple fritters

– line a tray with kitchen towel to drain the fritters when you lift them from the oil.
