Delicious Fresh Peach Fritters

 Fluffy, soft, moist and loaded with fresh peaches...Peach Fritters!

 I grew up in Pennsylvania and am very familiar with apple fritters.  The restaurant that I helped manage made apple fritters as a side dish, we made apple fritter sundaes with them as well.  The thought of making peach fritters never crossed my mind until I was talking to my little brother Kevin about what my next post would be.    When Kev told me he saw peach fritters at the market, the light came on!  I was so excited about the idea ,I started looking for recipes right away.  I found this one on Baking

 These Peach Fritters come together quickly and fry up in about 3 minutes to a beautiful puffy golden brown.  The batter doesn't have any sugar in it so rolling it in granulated sugar or topping them with a glaze as I did, is what makes it sweet. If you would prefer the batter to be a little sweet as I did, add 2 TBLS of sugar to the batter. I added about 1/2 of a teaspoon of cinnamon to the batter just because cinnamon goes so well with peaches.  I made the glaze by measuring out 1 cup of confectioners sugar and adding just enough milk to be able to drizzle over the fritters.  You could use lemon or orange juice instead of milk to flavor the glaze with as well.  If you really wanted to get fancy you could top them with crushed pecans after they're glazed!  Wouldn't that be nice!

I measured the batter out with 1/4 cup measuring cup and they were the perfect size for us. Using that measuring cup, I got 10 fritters from the batter. The inside of the fritter is loaded with peaches! Apples or pineapple would also do well in this batter. The texture of the fritter is very soft , fluffy and moist.    We enjoyed this little treat a lot and hope you do too!  Enjoy!

Peach Fritters


1 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt 
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 TBLs sugar ( my addition)
1/2 tsp cinnamon ( my addition)
2 eggs
1/3 cup milk
1 tablespoon melted butter or vegetable oil ( I used butter)
1-1/4 cups diced peaches ( I used 2 fresh peaches which came to a little over 1 1/4 cups of peaches)
granulated sugar in flat-sided bowl or a powdered sugar glaze
oil for fryer or deep frying pan

Powdered Sugar Glaze

1 cup of confectioners sugar
milk, enough to make a drizzling consistency.


With a wire whip, combine flour, salt, sugar, cinnamon and baking powder. Whisk in eggs, milk and butter. Fold in peaches.

Heat oil in fryer or pan to 375 degrees F. With long handled ladle, ladle about 1/4 -1/2 cup batter into hot oil. The batter will sink at first and then rise. Cook for about 2 - 3 minutes, depending on size of fritters. Remove fritters from oil with long-handled tongs. Quickly drain on paper towels or newspaper. Then place fritter in bowl of sugar. Coat with sugar on both sides, or glaze tops of fritters.

I used to stand in line at our local farmers market for apple fritters but would push to the front of the line for peach fritters:D

Yummy! Can these be made one day ahead without them suffering to much or best not to make ahead?

Aviva, they really are best eaten the day you make them. If you wanted to make them one day, but not put the glaze on them and reheat them in the microwave that might work.

Bunny said...

Val you made me laugh! I'd be right there with you!

Bunny said...

Lisa, You could saute the apples first, that would give them an awesome flavor in the fritter! And you could use ice cream caramel on top and have CARAMEL APPLE FRITTERS!!! Let me know what you do, I can't wait to see them!

Does the oil have to be deep enough to cover the fritter?

Bunny said...

Anonymous, you don't want to just coat the pan with oil to fry them. They do need more oil than that. I'd say use a small sauce pan so you don't use alot of oil. They do need to float in it so you can turn them over to fry the other side.

Paula said...

Bunny said...

Paula, YES you can use canned peaches!!

Try using nutmeg or mace instead of cinnamon. You will be amazed at how well these spices really bring out the peach flavor. But only use about half as much because these spices are more potent than cinnamon.

Love this recipe. I just bought some fresh peaches today from my Amish neighbor. I will be busy this evening. Whenever I use cinnamon in a recipe I always use 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. of fresh grated nutmeg. Love the combination.
