Apple Fritter Rings Recipe

This yeast-free Apple Fritter Rings recipe requires no proofing or waiting. Homemade caramel sauce is delightful, but cinnamon and sugar can finish fried apple rings quickly.


– 1 cup all-purpose flour – 1/4 teaspoon baking powder – 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg – 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon – 2 Tablespoons sugar – 1/4 teaspoon salt – 1 large egg – 1 1/4 cups buttermilk – 4 large apples, such as Fuji or Gala – Vegetable oil, for frying – Homemade or store-bought caramel sauce, for serving


Mix flour, baking powder, nutmeg, cinnamon, sugar, and salt in a medium basin. Whisk the egg and buttermilk in a large bowl, then stir into the flour mixture until mixed.

Step 1

Cut apples into 1/4-inch rounds. Remove the core from each apple slice and cut it into rings with cookie cutters.

Step 2

Add 3 inches of oil to a big heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat. Paper towel a sheet tray.

Step 3

Dip each apple slice in the batter, shake off excess, and carefully lower it into the oil when your deep-fry thermometer reads 350°F. Add many apple slices to the oil without overcrowding.

Step 4

Flip the apple slices occasionally to brown on all sides, then use tongs to transfer them to the paper towel-lined baking sheet. 

Step 5

Repeat battering and frying the remaining apple rings. Dish out caramel sauce to dip apple rings in immediately.
