Fruit Fritters

Updated on September 11, 2016

Moms Fruit Fritters

Years ago mom made what I called Apple (or Banana) fritters. I can't remember the last time she made them and I asked her during the last snowstorm (maybe week of January 20th or the wed of the week before) if we could make some.

We made 2 apples worth but Mom only ate one fritter! I ate all but 2 trying to make sure there was something left for my father. (he almost didn't get them)

For me there is never enough, as I like to munch on them through the day being they have to be finished that day.

For serving think at least half - 1 apple (or whatever fruit) per person for a serving.

This can be used as a snack, Appetizer, Dessert, or even part of breakfast

Reader suggestions: Banana, Veggies (though I think for this,the recipe may have to be tweaked)

You can use the apples depending on your taste.. like if you like

Sweet= Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, Courtland, Gala, Macoun, Hawaiian

Tart= Granny Smith Crabapple Criterion

? = Macintosh, Fiji

All Purpose= Baldwin

Apple varieties from A-w some w/ picture


  • Fruit... Apples or Bananas (well what we tried so far) For Apples normally the Red Delicious or Granny Smith as those are harder & won't fall apart but jsut use whatever your favorite!! All the better the fritter will taste
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 -1 1/2 cup Flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup (?) water (enough for thick dipping consistancy)
  • 1 tsp. - 1 tbls sugar (or sub)
  • veggie or canola oil (enough to cover to mid bottom of fritter )
Domino Pure Cane Dark Brown Sugar 1lb
Domino Pure Cane Dark Brown Sugar 1lb

We used light brown but i think this would taste much better. as for anything that could be used as a substitute, you know what you can use for your own diets & life styles


Cook Time

  • Prep time: 5 min
  • Cook time: 12 min
  • Ready in: 17 min
  • Yields: 1 fruit per person


  1. Mix ingredients together MUST be a thick consitancy that can cover the fruit well, but able to mix think maybe a little thicker than cake mix.
  2. (If you accidentally add too much water then you just need to add a little more flower & baking powder)
  3. When cooking the fritter watch the bottom part in the oil. when it turns golden (and/ or) the top bubles turn it over.
  4. when both sides are the golden color you'd like take it out &
  5. lightly Sprinkle with (when still hot) Cinnamon or Brown sugar.

      @DebMartin: Hey thank you for the view on my Fritter lens. To reply to what you asked etc

      That wasn't a frying pan.. it was the stew pot! We use that when we're too lazy to dig in the cabinets below the sink to get the deep fryier out. I'm really not a veggie person,(fresh & uncooked like CCarrotts & a few leaves of BABY spinach I can deal with Cucumber olives if they count as well othe than that.. the only time i have a green cooked veggie is the string beans at Outback steakhouse! let alone I esp. don't like them cooked (unless it's corn or potatoes) .but I do love Corn Fritters, (I think they are called poppers though) from Stu Leonard's! WHAT Maple syrup with them?!! OOOH I'll have to try to rmember that the next time we get them there! I'll have to see if I have room on the page to include a list of suggestions for what to make fritters out of.

      Oh, I have not had fritters in years. I like the high sides on your frying pan. Makes sense with all that popping oil. Have you tried vegetable fritters? They're good too. I love corn fritters with maple syrup. I think a batch of fritters is in my near future. Thanks.

      @Elsie Hagley: The fritters are better fresh. Regardless of the fruit. The also probably woudn't last be it apple or banana. (Though I'd love to find other fruits to use) usually there still wouldn't be any left over if we even made a double batch plus I like when they are still warm. anything baked or cooked for a 'dessert' or snack etc should be munched on while still warm & cozy.

      @VioletteRose LM: Next time we make them I hope we have both the apple & Banana because like the apple I haven't had the banana in a long while and this way I can figure out which I like best. If you make them with any other fruits please let me know so I can try

      @Merrci: Thank you for checking out my recipe for the Fritters.

      I'm not sure if they are gluten free the way we make them, I just figured to include the Gluten free items for those that may be interested.. (we usd regular flower, & the other stuff.)

      Fruit fritters are aways nice. Thanks for your version, if I was you I would double the recipe to make sure you have some over for the next day, only one thing bananas don't taste that good the next day in fritters they intend to go soggy and black.
