Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper and heating your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius).
In a large bowl, whisk together 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 1/3 cup sugar, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon.
In a separate bowl, mix together 2 eggs, 1/2 cup milk, and 1/4 cup melted butter until well combined.
Fold in 1 cup finely chopped apple into the wet mixture and then add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, stirring until just combined.
Use a spoon or a cookie scoop to drop the batter onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 1 inch apart.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
While the fritters are baking, prepare the glaze by mixing 1 cup powdered sugar and 1-2 tablespoons of milk in a bowl until smooth.
Once the fritters are done, allow them to cool for a few minutes before dipping them in the glaze.Serve warm and enjoy the delicious taste of these Easy Baked Apple Fritters.
You can customize the recipe by adding your favorite spices or nuts to the batter. For example, you can add a pinch of nutmeg or a handful of chopped walnuts for extra flavor and texture.
If you don't have fresh apples on hand, you can use canned apple pie filling instead. Just chop the filling into smaller pieces and fold it into the batter as you would with fresh apples. This can be a great time-saver and a convenient option when fresh apples are not in season.
