Air-Fryer Apple Fritters
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Cook: 8 min./batch
With the flour and fruit, etc., how is the exchange just 1 fat? There should be at least 1 starch!
After reading the reviews I made sure to put the parchment paper in with the fritters on them, as well as I gradually added in the milk. I had no problems! We like them. The icing is what makes them I think. They would be bland without them.
Our fryer only went to 400, so had to adjust cook time, glaze needed a little extra milk, otherwise it looked like oatmeal. Taste was fine. Do not put parchment paper in before preheating.
Like a caramel apple treat! I’m glad I didn’t let myself get scared off by the negative reviews. I preheated the air fryer empty and only put the parchment in with the fritters. I made the following substitutions, only because it’s what I had in the house. I used Apple cider vinegar instead of lemon juice, brown sugar instead of white sugar, and half & half instead of 2% milk. I used 2 medium apples and 1 small Apple. I ended up adding an extra splash of milk to the frosting to get it to my desired consistency. Everyone in the family asked for seconds!
That was a was a was of time and ingredients. SAFETY tip: never, ever, recommend that you put parchment in the fryer basket, spritz with oil, and preheat. The paper gets sucked up by the fan into the heating element and catches fire! Ask me how I know! After I aired out the house and cleaned up, I stupidly tried again. I wound up with one big runny pancake that was brown on the outside but raw in the middle. On a minor note, the recipe says nothing about how much vanilla to add to the batter. It assumes you make the glaze first and that you should use the "remaining vanilla." Horrible experience, and one that could have been tragic.
1 1/2 Cups of flour made a very runny batter. I needed to a lot more flour to get a consistency that did not run all over the parchment paper.
Batter is too thin and spreads across the air fryer basket. What a mess! And the taste is bland. A waste of two apples.
Do you have any suggestions on egg replacement? We can't use egg due to allergies, but I would love to try these! Thank you
These turned out great. I did pat down the mounds of batter after I dropped it onto the parchment paper because they do puff up. The ratio of chopped apple to batter was perfect.
