Best Apple Fritters Recipe with Chai Spice Sugar

If you haven’t tried apple fritters then you are definitely missing something absolutely delicious and these Apple Fritters Recipe with Chai Spice Sugar or Chai Spice Apple Fritters are totally a treat.

Okay, yet another confession time – I’m not a huge apple fan and always come up with the weirdest of excuses for not eating them…like too much fiber is bad (Seriously – hehehhe).

BUT, give me desserts made out of apples and I’m the first one to bite into them, especially apple tart – oh #nomnom!

After a recent visit to Costco and yet again getting things more than we could consume (Don’t tell me I’m the first one to do that), and more than our pantry and fridge could adjust.

We were left with tons of fresh fruits – including 2 different kinds of apples (24 in total – now we are talking).

So what better way to consume them than making these delectable apple fritters.

Apple Fritters Recipe with Chai Spice Sugar Ingredients

  • Apples
  • All-Purpose Flour
  • Milk 
  • 2 Tsp Yogurt
  • Baking Powder + Baking Soda
  • Spices 
  • Sugar – I’m using two kinds
  • Oil – for frying

Also, with the almost approaching Halloween and the season of Fall, these made such a perfect lil dessert bites that I just couldn’t resist…

Who knows my unconscious mind was already thinking about it and hence so many apples 🙂 and if it’s the ‘season of fall‘, who could resist ‘chai spice‘ and ‘pumpkin spice‘.

Nothing excites me more about the fall/winter than these two spice blends,  especially ‘Chai Spice‘.

It gives me that almost home kind of a warm fuzzy feeling which is a complete home run for me and what’s better than including these 2 fall favorite in one recipe.

Also, the fritters dough includes a combination of ingredients that results in an extremely soft and fluffy fritter every time hence Best Apple Fritters Recipe with Chai Spice Sugar.

You can make the chai spice blend at home or use a store-bought one, just mix it in with half powder sugar and half brown sugar. Now, here’s a big question –

how to make best apple fritters

Why do we need 2 Kinds of Sugar?

1. If we use just the powdered sugar along with spice mix, it doesn’t give you that sugary taste (biting into those sugar crystal)

2. If we just use just the brown sugar with spice mix, it lacks that clingy powdered sugar look and feel.


Hence for the Best Results, use a mixture of the two (however you can increase or decrease either one of them as per choice).

How to make Best Apple Fritters Recipe

Once, our chai spice sugar mix is ready lets dice that apple into tiny bits (but if you like biting into chunks of apples, then you can chop them in medium bite-size).

Add all the dry and wet ingredients together, throw in the apples and mix.

Using an ice-cream scooper or two spoons method (one for scooping the dough and other for sliding it into the hot oil), fry these apple fritters to a perfect slightly darker golden color.

Once cooked, dust them with chai spice sugar and enjoy!!chai spice apple fritters

If you would like to further enhance the taste a little, spray some whipped cream, sprinkle some chocolate sauce over them and enjoy with piping hot coffee or tea.

I can guarantee that if you follow the exact recipe, then every time you make these, every bite will just send you into a warm fuzzy delicious state of mind that you’d never wanna leave.

Especially with the coming labor day weekend, these would make a great finger food or dessert bite to share with your friends and family. So try these  ASAP and Enjoy !best-apple-fritters-chai-spice-sugar-1
