AIR FRYER APPLE-CRANBERRY FRITTERS

We’re always fascinated by what can be made in an air fryer and these apple-cranberry fritters fall under that category. They’re sweet and tender and are covered in a simple homemade glaze. Delicious!


Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes

Servings: Makes 18 fritters


Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 large Granny Smith apple, peeled and diced
  • 1 cup dried sweetened cranberries
  • 1 cup cranberry-apple juice
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups powdered sugar

Directions:

For fritters:

In a large bowl, mix together flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, cloves and nutmeg with a spoon. Add apple and cranberries and mix to coat well. Pour in 3/4 cup cranberry-apple juice, butter and vanilla and toss to coat. Add eggs and mix well to combine.

Line bottom of air fryer basket with parchment paper. Spoon 3 tablespoons of batter onto parchment paper and spray with cooking spray. Cook at 350°F for 6 minutes. Flip fritters, spray again with cooking spray and cook for an additional 4 minutes. Remove from air fryer basket. Work in batches, if necessary.

For glaze:

Combine powdered sugar and 1/4 cup cranberry-apple juice in medium bowl.

Let fritters cool slightly prior to applying glaze. Create a work station by placing a wire rack over a bowl. Position fritter on rack above bowl and drizzle glaze on top, covering completely. Shake rack to remove excess glaze. Set on another wire rack to allow glaze to set.

Enjoy!

ORANGE & FIELD TIP: It’s best to apply the glaze to warm fritters so be sure not to let them cool too much before that step.
