Baked Apple Fritters with Honey Sauce

You’ll wake up dreaming about these baked apple fritters. With chunks of apple, a honey sauce, crunchy outside and a soft, fluffy inside, there’s no better way to start a morning. Plus, you can feel good about serving your family real ingredients and no added processed sugar. So the next time you end up with a few too many apples in your kitchen, treat them (and you) to this homemade take on a donut shop favorite.

Yield 24 fritters
Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes

Ingredients
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • ½ cup Nature Nate’s pure honey, plus 1 cup for honey sauce
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¾ cup cream
  • 2 Tbsp melted butter
  • 2 apples, such as gala or Fuji, peeled, cored, and cubed
  • ½ cup water


Directions

Heat oven to 350 degrees. In an electric mixer, add both flours, baking powder, and salt, and mix to combine. Add the honey, eggs, cream, and melted butter, and mix on medium high for two minutes. Stir in cubed apples until well-incorporated. Scoop into a greased mini bundt pan, donut, or muffin tin and bake for 20 minutes. Gently remove the fritters onto a baking sheet topped with a cookie rack, flip, and bake for another five minutes. In a separate bowl, combine the cup of honey with half a cup of water and stir to combine. Dip each fritter in the honey and allow to cool on the cookie rack before serving.
