    Batter was bland and pretty much thick pancake batter, 375 is way to high considering how thick the batter is and needs more time to cook through unless you like raw batter. But hey. Go off.

    The flavor is there, but the batter is far too thick (at least for my taste). After the first three rings had approximately the consistency of a cake donut (and difficulty coating them in the first place), I added an extra quarter cup of milk and that straightened it out fine. I barely got through three apples, even after the adjustment. If left as it was, I don't know that I'd have gotten through an apple and a half.

    Excellent recipe, I've tried a few but this was the most successful. I added Cinnamon to the batter because it was a little bland and kept the oil heat around 350 since 375 was far too fast paced to keep them from burning.

    This recipe was good. It's even better when you cut the apples into little pieces because then you get apple fritter bites.

    These are great! I serve these with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and drizzle hot caramel sauce on top.
