September is here and in my mind I instantly think about apples and baking.  You might remember these apple cider donuts from last year that I made, and I wanted to go in that same route but with something a little simpler.  If you’re feeling like donuts but don’t feel like doing all the work, fritters are the way to go! This recipe requires little effort and you can whip these up in 30 minutes with prep time.  Perfect for a yummy breakfast or an sweet afternoon snack.

Add about 1 tablespoon of batter into the heated oil.  I like mine a little flatter, and dragged the spoon as I dropped the batter creating more surface area. Once golden brown remove from the oil and set on paper towel to drain. Dip fritters into the glaze while still warm. I preferred mine to sit for about 30 minutes I found the flavors to enhance more.

Omgosh this looks wonderful and apple fritters are one of our favorite types of doughnuts. Will definitely be trying this out. Pinned.

These look amazing! I definitely have to try them out. How much oil would I have to use for frying in a pan?
