  • Mix flour, 1/4 cup sugar, milk, egg, baking powder, and salt together in a small bowl. Stir until combined.

  • Mix 2 tablespoons sugar with cinnamon in another bowl and sprinkle over apples until coated. Mix apples into the flour mixture until combined.

  • Drop fritters using a cookie scoop onto the bottom of the air fryer basket.

  • Air-fry in the preheated fryer for 5 minutes. Flip fritters and cook until golden, about 5 minutes more.

  • Meanwhile, mix confectioners' sugar, milk, caramel extract, and cinnamon together in a bowl. Transfer fritters to a cooling rack and drizzle with glaze.

Cook's Note:

I recommend using a Jonagold apple.

I didn t have the Carmel it wanted so my sauce wasn t right (I used vanilla instead) and I thought it tasted better without it. With that said I started off trying to do what she said and put it in my air fryer maybe I m just not talented enough or my air fryer isn t large enough so I gave up and cooked in my oven. Tastes great very filling I ll make it again but definitely skipping the air fryer! Read More

Neither my husband nor I cared for this at all. I just got my air fryer so maybe I'm just not used to it yet. The taste was off--maybe too much flour and not enough apple, but I followed the recipe as written. Sorry, but I won't be making this again. Read More

I added a little more milk because the dough was too stiff and used less sugar. I will make it again. Read More

Bland These cooked great in the air fryer but they were very bland. You can’t really taste the apple or cinnamon. The glaze ratio was very off with way too much milk. Don’t use 1/2 cup. They were edible, but I won’t be making these again. Read More

Liquid to dry ratio wAs way off even for an airfrier. I added more milk but it just wasn't the right consistency for fritters. Will not make again. Read More
