Fried Cinnamon Fritters

  • Yield: 4 servings


  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup sugar plus 2 tablespoons
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk, plus more as needed
  • 1 egg
  • Vegetable oil, for frying


  • Preheat deep fryer to 350 degrees F.
  • In a small bowl, combine 2 teaspoons cinnamon and 2 tablespoons sugar, set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, remaining cinnamon, remaining sugar, and the salt. In a separate bowl, combine milk and egg. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, adjusting the amount of milk to make a thick batter. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Drop heaping tablespoons of fritter batter into hot oil, frying 5 to 6 at a time. Stir occasionally for even browning. Fry fritters 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown on all sides. Remove fritters from fryer and drain on a paper towel-lined plate.
