Air Fryer Apple Fritters
Honeycrisp Apples - Diced 2 each
All-Purpose Flour 1 1/2 cups
Baking Powder 2 tsp
White Sugar 1/4 cup
Ground Cinnamon 1 1/2 tsp
Kosher Salt 1/2 tsp
Milk 2/3 cup + 1 tbsp
Eggs 2 each
Lemon Juice 1 tbsp
Vanilla Extract 1 1/2 tsp
Butter 1/4 cup
Confectioners Sugar 1 cup
1. Preheat air fryer to 410°. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Add milk, eggs, lemon juice and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and stir, then fold in apples.
2. Line air-fryer basket with parchment (cut to fit); spray with cooking spray. In batches, 2-3 tbsp of batter 2 inches apart onto parchment. Cook until golden brown, 5-6 minutes. Open the lid, spray the tops with cooking spray, then continue to air-fry until golden brown, 1-2 minutes (this will give the fritters a shiny top!)
3. Melt butter in small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add confectioners' sugar, 1 tablespoon milk and remaining 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract to butter; whisk until smooth. Drizzle over fritters before serving.
