Apple Fritters with Caramel Sauce

apple fritters with carmel sauce

These taste of fall and the holidays! My family loves to get them from our local bakery, but I thought, “I can do this” and set about trying. This is what I came up with:


Apple Fritters with Caramel Sauce

With the carmely sweetness and crispy fried apple, these fritters are something you will want to make again and again.
Cuisine American


  • 5 apples peeled, cored and chopped into 1/2 cubes
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp cloves
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 12 oz. dark beer
  • coconut oil for frying


  • Begin by peeling, coring and chopping the apples.
  • Add the sugars and spices to the apples and gently stir to coat.
  • Place the flour and salt into a bowl and create a “well” in the center.
  • Pour the beer into the well, and mix to incorporate.
  • Carefully add the apples to the beer batter.
  • Let sit for 20 minutes while the oil is heating.
  • Spoon 1/4 cup spoonfuls of the batter into the hot oil, frying 4 minutes on each side.
  • Remove to paper towels to drain.

for the sauce:

  • cup light brown sugar
  • sticks butter
  • cup heavy cream
  • Melt the sugar over medium high heat.
  • Add the butter and cream and allow to come to a boil.
  • Boil for about 2 minutes, stirring constantly until thickened.
  • Drizzle over the hot fritters.

The beer doesn’t leave any alcohol behind, but the flavor it imparts is wonderful when mixed with the apples.

This recipe made about 16 1/4 cup batter sized fritters, and my family devoured all of them easily.  This could easily become a Hanukkah tradition each year, as we are going to have these the first night as well.
