A classic donut is something that will always make me happy. I’ve mentioned this before…a few times, I believe… I’ve always had a thing for that super crunchy pop of apple fritters, though. Not an “eat them as my donut choice always”, but occasionally. Somehow they always stay crunchier than a regular donut, and I love that! The nice thing about apple fritters as well is that they don’t really require any rising time. Of course they don’t really have the taste of a risen donut, but sometimes that’s ok.
Yeast raised donuts are my preference, but oftentimes the wait time is not in the cards, and neither is waiting on chilling the dough for a classic sour cream donut. If you want a delicious, relatively quick donut experience, with a pop of extra flavor give these einkorn apple fritters a try!
