Venango County Recipe of the Day: Air-Fryer Apple Fritters – Sponsored by Top Tier Federal Credit Union.

An air fryer makes these easy apple fritters healthier than old-fashioned fritters, yet they are still just as delicious!


1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup 2% milk
2 large eggs, room temperature
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract, divided
2 medium Honeycrisp apples, peeled and chopped
Cooking spray
1/4 cup butter
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 tablespoon 2% milk


-Preheat the 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; stir just until moistened. Fold in apples.

-Line the air-fryer basket with parchment (cut to fit); spritz with cooking spray. In batches, drop dough by 1/4 cupfuls 2 in. apart onto parchment. Spritz with cooking spray. Cook until golden brown, 5-6 minutes. Turn fritters; continue to air-fry until golden brown, 1-2 minutes.

-Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Carefully cook until butter starts to brown and foam, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat; cool slightly. Add confectioners’ sugar, 1 tablespoon milk, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract to browned butter; whisk until smooth. Drizzle over the fritters before serving.
