Sugary Apple Fritters Recipe

My kids love these fritters year-round, but I get even more requests in the fall when there are plenty of apples in season. I like to serve them as a special breakfast treat when they host friends for sleepovers. —Katie Beechy, Seymour, Missouri

"Only one word comes to mind for these! WOW! Oh, so yummy!

The only change we made was to use a non-dairy creamer instead of the dry milk powder. It's a lactose intolorence thing."

"I Love that this recipe does not have cinnamon! Rarely do you find apple anything without cinnamon, being allergic to it makes it difficult this time of year! I will definitely be making these this weekend!"

"My grandpa gave me some early transparent apples and I was dying to use them. I was searching TOH for a recipe and came across these fritters. I didn't want to fry these so I baked the dough using my donut pan and they turned out wonderful !! I also used half whole wheat pastry flour and added a tsp of cinnamon as well. Plus I didn't peel the apples since the skins have all the fiber and nutrition!"
