The crisp fall weather is in the air and apple season is officially here! What better way to take advantage of this time of year than to hit the orchards with your kiddos and whip up some homemade fritters for everyone to enjoy?!
The apple fritters were tested by Mackenzie FIVE times to make sure they were absolutely perfect … and I have to say, she really nailed this recipe! The apple cider in this recipe gives the fritters such an intense apple flavour that is so drool-worthy!
I know I’ve mentioned this before but I want to let you in on my little “ingredient shopping hack”! I buy all of my baking ingredients from Bulk Barn! In this recipe alone, I bought my flour, sugar, baking powder, icing sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt, all from Bulk Barn! I honestly love shopping there so much because it’s so cost-effective and I love the fact that I can bring my own containers in order to reduce the amount of packaging coming into my home!
Alright … let’s dig into the recipe … shall we? I’ll warn you though, this recipe is highly addicting and insanely delicious! LOL!
If you happen to make these fritters, make sure to share your feedback with me in the comments below! I can’t WAIT for you to give them a try!
Gah these look amazing! can’t wait to make them! Aaaaand since they are vegan I can ell myself it’s basically a health food.
That’s what I tell myself … LOL
What is step number 2???
The steps were all there but the numbering was just off! Fixed now! xo
Looks soooo yummy! As I was reading the recipe, I noticed step 2 was blank. I think you are just wanting to see if we are awake, so, is there a step 2?
LOLLL!!! The numbering was just off! It’s fixed now! XO
I know that you like to use plant based ingredients, is this imthe reason for the almond milk instead of regular milk? It should regular milk not be substituted?
I am definitely going to try and make these, I’m not vegan but have been thinking lately that I need to make some adjustments to my diet, as I have some serious health issues, severe asthma, allergie, and vocal cord dysfunction. But, I love my sweets, it’s the Scottish heritage lol!
Complete waste of time. Yeast didn’t foamy like th recipe suggested.
Really?? Did you let it sit?? What yeast did you use? xo
Mine didn’t either, used fleischmann active dry yeast and warm (but not hot) apple cider vinegar. Should it be hot?
It’s supposed to be warm apple cider, not warm apple cider vinegar!! GAHH!!! It was a typo in the recipe which is now fixed!! XO
I found the same thing. I think the liquid to yeast ratio is off.
It’s supposed to be warm apple cider not apple cider vinegar!!! Eeeeppp!! There was a typo in the first version which I’ve adjusted!!
I think it’s the apple cider vinegar – it cancels out the yeast’s ability to grow.
Love this! Excited to try them.
Am I able to sub normal butter? I’m not vegan
Instead of frying these can you bake them?
Thank you for this. As a momma of a kiddo allergic to eggs, dairy, tree nuts, peanuts and several other things this is a perfect recipe for when her friends get donuts!! Thank you!!
I’m on my second batch, and neither time has the dough risen… 🙁
Did you try it with the warmed apple cider?? There was a typo in the recipe at first, it said apple cider vinegar but it’s apple cider!!!
When I printed this it said “Apple cider vinegar” but now it says “Apple cider”- I’m assuming it’s not vinegar but please let me know! I’m dying to make these!
That’s right, it’s apple cider, not apple cider vinegar!!! XOXO
The yeast isn’t foaming for me either and I used active dry yeast exactly as it mentioned ?. I’m so sad! (And I let it set for 20 + minutes!)
Gahhhh!!!! It’s supposed to be warm apple cider, not apple cider vinegar!!! That was a typo! Now fixed!! xo
We made these last night! We either made too much filling or didn’t let the apples caramalize enough as it was a little wet and the dough got a little soggy. We also used regular butter and added the vanilla at the beginning of cooking the apples (wine was involved so directions were sometimes read after haha) which may have changed things a little. BUT we did cut half of it up and tried to make fritter looking things and popped the other half (looked like a panzerotti) in the oven to bake – I wish we had stuck with the fritters! The baked half was good, but our little fritter blobs turned out AMAZING! Was the perfect fall dessert for the cold weather we are getting here in Alberta. Will definitely make again 🙂
The original blog post had a typo in the recipe, which has now been corrected!! It said apple cider vinegar when it’s supposed to be warm apple cider!! XO
These look amazing, could they be in a gluten and dairy free version as well? My daughter cannot have any gluten or dairy.
Is it Apple cider or Apple cider vinegar in the ingredientes?? Looks yummi
Apple cider!!! XOXO
I made these and they totally flopped. I thought first it was the yeast, but I had just went and bought a new one for this recipe. The yeast and apple vinegar cider did not rise at all or smell like bread. They even didn’t even rise at all throughout, the dough, or in the little fritters. I’m so disappointed! I’m going to have to throw the whole thing out….:(
Hi Ellen! It’s supposed to be warm apple cider, not apple cider vinegar!! ? XO
Oy. . . these did not come out well at all. The first thing was that the dough took about 1 hour and a 1/2 to grow in size. I used warm cider and put it in my oven with the light on. The dough was extremely sticky so I thought I had floured my whole rolling surface enough but apparently I did not. After putting the wet mixture onto my dough and cutting them into squares(ish), the cut dough with filling was impossible to get off of the board. The wet mixture also made the bottom dough soggy and crumble when taken off the surface. To not have a meltdown, my husband came over and with a LOT of flour, rolled out extra unused dough and double wrapped the few fritters I was able to scrape off the board. We ended up with a few good, albeit doughy fritters, but they were a long, frustrating process to get. For anyone thinking of making these I would NOT and yes, they look delicious in the pictures, but they were a flop and take a lot of time. My suggestion if you must make them would be to go to Step 9 (use a LOT of flour!!), but then put a spoonful of mixture on the dough, and put a small dough piece on top, like you were making mini pies. Then maybe you could shape it into a fritter without all the dough getting really soggy.
Hi Kate!! So strange!! And you used warm apple cider, not apple cider vinegar, right??
Hi, I found this delicious recipe but now I have a silly question. Because I live far away in Europe, we might have another size package of groceries..so how much does one package of yeast weight?
And thank God I just read those comments about apple cider vinegar, I would have fail this too…
Thank you already about your blog and Instagram site Jillian, I became a fan during watching Love it or list it and also that serie of you and Justin. Your house is beautiful!
