Apple Fritters with Maple Glaze

Makes roughly 20 3-inch fritters


Apple Fritters:

1½ cups all-purpose or gluten-free flour

¼ cup sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon

¼ teaspoon nutmeg

½ cup oat milk

1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 eggs

3 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce

2 large apples peeled,

cored and diced into ½-inch dice

Spotlight™ Oil for frying

Maple Glaze:

1½ cups powdered sugar

1 tablespoon oat milk

1 tablespoon Spotlight™ Oil

½ cup pure maple syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

¼ teaspoon kosher salt


Place a wire rack over a baking sheet and set it next to your deep fryer.

Apple Fritters:

Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg in medium bowl. Make a well in the center and add the wet ingredients. Stir just to combine. Fold in the apples.

Heat 3 inches of Spotlight™ Oil in a Dutch oven or heat your deep fryer to 350 °F. Using a ¼ cup measuring cup, or a 1oz ice cream scoop, gently drop fritter batter into the hot Spotlight™ Oil. Fry for 1½ to 2 minutes on each side. If the fritters are browning too quickly turn the heat down. Using a slotted spatula or spider, transfer the fritters to the wire rack

to drain.

Maple Glaze:

Whisk all ingredients together until smooth. Dunk each fritter in the glaze, turning over to make sure both sides are coated. Allow any excess to drop off before placing back on wire racks to air dry.
