German Apple Fritters – Koch Mein Rezept

It’s time again for Koch Mein Rezept. This time I have drawn Eva from Evchenkocht. On her blog, you can find classics as well as creative and modern recipes. As always, the recipe selection was hard!

I chose the German Apple Fritters, or ‘Abblkischlscher’, from Eva’s grandma. I love trying regional classics and you can’t go wrong with grandmother’s recipes anyway! This weekend I was at my parents’ house for the apple harvest, so there couldn’t be a better time for this recipe selection 😉.

German Apple Fritters

Apple cakes are super easy to make and therefore perfect for an autumn evening when you’ve spent all day outside picking apples! First, you mix up a rather runny dough, basically a pancake batter. With a batter like Eva’s, as she writes on her site, thin apple slices make for the best results. These are then pulled through the dough and fried in a shallow frying pan.

Since I haven’t fried my Fritters in enough fat mine unfortunately haven’t become as beautiful and crispy as Eva’s. In her post, she has a few more tips on apple varieties and preparation for you. So hop on over and read Eva’s blog post (it’s in German) before you start cooking the apple fritters.

German Apple Fritters


  • 4 apples
  • 4 tbsp flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2-4 tbsp milk
  • 1 tbsp sugar optional
  • butter or frying oil
  • powderd sugar


  • Core the apples. Then cut the apples into 3-5mm wide slices.
  • Mix flour, eggs and salt. Gradually add milk so that a smooth dough is formed.
  • Heat a large frying pan with clarified butter or frying oil.
  • Pull the apple slices through the dough, let the dough drip off briefly. Then fry in the hot fat until golden brown on both sides.
  • Serve hot with powdered sugar.

Apple fritters are definitely a childhood classic that I haven’t eaten in a while. So thank you for that, Eva! Tell me: what are your favorite fall classics?
