Recipe Review: Fuji Fritters

So for my first review I was doubting what to do and after much debate I chose this recipe fro two reasons. The first is because my daughter needed something to take to school for teacher appreciation and the first day is apples, The second reason is because I have never made a fritter. It was so easy and will be making these again.

Before Baking

Fuji Fritters.

Makes 12

For Apple mixture

3 Cups fuji apples, peeled and cubed

3 tbsp splenda

1 tbsp cornstarch

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla

For Fritter Base

1 1/3 cup regular oats ( not instant)

2/3 cup Bisquick Heart Smart Baking mix

2/3 cup vanilla soy milk

2 tbsp brown sugar not packed

1 1/2 tbsp butter

1 tsp baking powder


Preheat oven to 400

Place apples chunks in a medium microwave safe bowl with 1/4 cup water. Cover and microwave for two and half minutes. Drain and set aside

In a medium unheated pot, combine splenda, cinnamon, vanilla, and cornstarch with 1/2 cup cold water. Cook over medium heat, stir occasionally. Continue to cook and stir until thickened to a caramel sauce like consistency. Remove pot from heat and stir in apple chunks.

In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients for fritter base until mixed well. Fold apples into the fritter base.

Spray two large baking sheets with nonstick spray. Evenly distribute batter into twelve mounds. They will expand.

Bake for 10-15 minutes(I did 13) minutes until a toothpick is inserted and comes out clean.

My Thoughts

I did not have any oats in the house and was not going out with 2 kids in a storm so I used bisquick for the whole recipe. I feel that they came out wonderful. I am not a big fan of apples so it was hard for me to truly like but my kids love them.Hopefully her teacher likes them.

My rating 4. 2/ 5
