Baked Apple Fritters are everything you love about Fall baking. And they're not fried!
I haven't really made a lot of doughnuts. I do a lot of baking, but doughnuts just haven't happened in my kitchen all that often. I'm not sure why because I certainly enjoy them.
Maybe because I never really knew baked doughnuts were a thing until a couple of years ago. When I thought of doughnuts, my mind would go to fried.
And ... I'm a tiny bit scared of deep-frying. Again, I don't know why. It's just not something I do. We'll say it's for the health reasons. That's definitely a factor, but maybe not the whole reason.
So these apple fritters aren't fried. That's too
scary unhealthy. These are baked apple fritters, and you know what? You won't even miss the fried part, because these baked apple fritters are absolutely fantastic.
My kids came home from school and saw these on the counter and immediately asked if they could have them for a snack and in their lunch the next day and if they were healthy enough for breakfast tomorrow. Covering all their bases, and making sure they would be getting one of these things!
I can't really blame them though, when you see a fresh baked apple fritter dripping with glaze, it's kind of hard to not want one immediately, if not sooner.
Considering how many of these have disappeared already, I kind of don't think they're going to last long. I guess I should make baked doughnuts more often. They're kind of amazing - and not scary to make at all!
