Reviews for Apple Fritters
"I love this! It is so delicious!! I added and extra tablespoon of orange juice and milk to make it thinner. I will definitely make this again!"
"Very good! It makes a small batch. I tripled the recipe for my family of 7. Also, it makes a very thick batter, so I thinned it with more milk so it was lay down in the electric skillet, instead of staying in a big blob."
"Easy and delicious! I added cinnamon to the batter. Would definitely make again."
"It tasted great but I never follow a recipe to a tee and it seems I made fried mini apple pies rather than apple fritters. I literally folded the apples in. Into little triangles of dough. That I then fried. Oops. So the apples were in the center. I also modified the recipe. Because I thought I was supposed to fold the apples in, I made a filling for the apples the way I make apple pie, it's caramel sauce, cinnamon, flour and brown sugar. It's sooo good. Even though I totally botched the recipe, it tasted great."
"Really good. Hot and fresh is the best. Makes a small batch."
