With the Christmas season coming up, it is good to have a few treats in your recipe book to keep these little ones happy.  These are filling and great as a snack but best as a dessert.  They are simple and easy to make and once you have made them you can store them in the fridge for latter.  When you want them, heat them up in the oven for a few minutes.  The fritters are fun, sweet, and tasty!


  • I used both vegan butter and vegetable oil to fry the fritters in.  The butter adds flavour and the vegetable oil is both cheaper and healthier.

Makes 4 big fritters.

20 minutes. 


  • White flour x 160 g
  • Apple sauce x 2 tbsp
  • Apple x 1/2 chopped
  • Sultans x 2 tbsp
  • Water x 70 ml 
  • Cinnamon x 1 tsp
  • Baking powder x 1/2 tsp
  • Vegan butter for frying 20 g
  • Vegetable oil for frying x 3 tbsp
  • Salt x 1/4 tsp
  • Sugar x 4 tsp 


  1. Tip the flour into a mixing bowl. 

  2. Add the water and mix. 

  3. Add the apple sauce, chopped apple, sultans, cinnamon, baking powder, salt, and sugar. 

  4. Mix everything together into a sticky dough. 

  5. Shape into patties and fry on a medium heat on both sides until golden brown on both sides. About 5 – 8 minutes each side.  Keep checking as you fry them, so they don't burn.

  6. Dust with icing sugar (Optional).

These turned out quite nice.   I had them with vegan ice-cream for dessert.
