  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons milk

Apple Fritters:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 large apples red or green, peeled, cored, and diced small
  • Vegetable oil for brushing/spraying


  • Apple Fritters:
  • Line the basket of the air fryer with a piece of parchment paper. Brush lightly with vegetable oil.
  • Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl whisk together flour, both sugars, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  • Make a well in the center and add milk, vanilla, and eggs. Stir until well combined, then fold in the apples with a spatula.
  • Drop about ¼ cup of the batter onto the lined air fryer basket. Depending on the size of your air fryer you may only fit 2-3 fritters at a time. DO NOT overcrowd or they won’t get crispy.
  • Lightly brush the fritter with oil using a pastry brush. Fry for 4-5 minutes or until deep golden brown. Flip and fry 3-4 more minutes or until they are golden brown.
  • Repeat with the remaining batter.
  • Mix the glaze ingredients in a bowl until combined.
  • Place apple fritters on the cooling rack and drizzle with glaze and serve.
