Air fryer apple and cinnamon fritters recipe

10 servings


50 minutes

total time


225g (1 1/2 cups) self-raising flour

Pinch of salt

100g (1/2 cup) caster sugar

2 ½ gm ground cinnamon

125ml (1/2 cup) apple juice

4 ⅖ gm vanilla extract

2 eggs

2 pink lady apples, unpeeled, coarsely grated

50g butter, melted

Vanilla custard, to serve


Combine the flour, salt, 50g sugar and 1/2 tsp cinnamon in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre. Whisk the juice, vanilla and eggs in a jug until well combined. Pour egg mixture into flour mixture. Stir until just combined (do not overmix). Stir in the apple.

Line the base of an air fryer basket with baking paper. Spoon 60ml (1/4 cup) of the batter onto the baking paper (depending on the size of your basket, you may fit 2 or 3 fritters at a time. Do not overcrowd the pan, as they will expand while cooking). Spray with oil. Bake for 5 minutes at 200°C. Turn fritters. Bake for a further 5 minutes or until golden and cooked through. Repeat with remaining batter.

While the fritters are cooking, combine the remaining 50g sugar and 1/2 tsp cinnamon in a shallow bowl. Remove the fritters from the air fryer. Brush all over with melted butter. Dip fritters, one at a time, in cinnamon sugar. Turn to coat.

Serve the fritters immediately with custard, to dip.
