Crispy, comforting and so easy! These 6-ingredient fritters are a cross between donuts and funnel cake. Every bite is filled with juicy apples, cinnamon and drizzled with an easy two-ingredient glaze. They are ready in under 20 minutes! Perfection with a cup of coffee on a chilly morning.

When we want to share a special fall treat, you can find me dropping of batches of delicious, fluffy apple fritters with our friends! Using only a few basic everyday ingredients, you can enjoy these glazed donut-style apple fritters any time of year. Drizzle on a gooey 2-ingredient glaze, and you’ll see these are over-the-top tasty… like a crispy, soft funnel cake stuffed with apples!

The steps are simple:

• Preheat oil in a large pot.
• Combine Bisquick, water, eggs and sugar in a large bowl.
• Fold in apple pie filling and cinnamon.
• Add 1 tablespoon of dough to oil. Fry ’til golden brown, 3-4 minutes.
• Mix milk and powdered sugar to make a glaze; drizzle over warm fritters.

You can easily substitute the Bisquick or apple pie filling (recipes linked in the Notes section). Using these shortcuts keeps these fritters fast and no-fuss, without compromising flavor!

Don’t be afraid to jazz them up a bit, too! Want more spice? Add a dash of nutmeg, allspice and ginger. Need a bit of crunch? Chopped walnuts and pecans make a delicious mix-in. If your batter is too thin, add a bit more Bisquick. Too thick? A splash of water should do the trick! You want the batter relatively thick, so that it holds up in the hot oil. The fritters will puff up to a small fist-size amount, so drop in only about one tablespoon.
