Baked Apple Fritters

These Baked Apple Fritters are so easy to make and so delicious, you really won’t miss the fried dough and splattering oil! These fritters will still give you that apple flavor in every bite. Plus, they are drizzled with the homemade glaze I use for my other fritter recipes. These are a bit crisper than a fried fritter but just as flavorful.

Fritter Ingredients

Biscuits: Look for the flaky layer refrigerated biscuits for this recipe!

Apples: I chose to use Granny Smith apples for this recipe, but I will give some additional substitutions below!

Glaze: The glaze for this recipe is just a simple vanilla glaze but it is so delicious paired with these fritters.

What Kinds of Apples are Best?

I prefer to use Granny Smith apples in this recipe (as well as my original Apple Fritters recipe) as they hold up beautifully when baked or fried. We did try Honeycrisp apples and liked it, but when we tried Red Delicious apples, it wasn’t our favorite. The texture of the red delicious apples was almost the same as the donut and there wasn’t as strong of an apple flavor. When possible, opt for a Granny Smith!
