Air Fryer Apple Fritters
Air Fryer Apple Fritters are crispy-golden, infused with cinnamon, and loaded with fresh, tender apples topped with a sweet glaze.
Servings 12 fritters
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 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
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.
