    • 1-1/2 cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
    • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
    • 6 tablespoons cold butter
    • 1 large egg
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1 (6 ounce) container Yoplait very vanilla yogurt
    • 1 cup chopped apple (about 1 large apple)
    • 1/2 cup shredded apple (about 1 small apple)
    • 2 cups powdered sugar
    • 1/3 cup apple cider


Preheat oven to 350°F. 

Using non-stick cooking spray, lightly spray two mini muffin pans.

Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg 
in a large bowl

Using a pastry blender or two knives, cut in the butter until coarse crumbs form.

Whisk together the egg, vanilla and yogurt 
in a small bowl

Combine the yogurt mixture and flour mixture and until well mixed. 

Fold in apples.

Place batter in each muffin cup, 
a few teaspoons at a time . 

Bake 15 minutes or until they just start to brown.

Remove from the oven and turn the oven broiler on high. 

Transfer the fritters to the cookie sheets lined with parchment paper.

Whisk together 1 cup powdered sugar and 4 tablespoons apple cider 
in a small bowl. The glaze should be very thin. 

Brush the glaze over each fritter, letting it drip down the sides. 

Return the fritters to the oven . . . broil for 2-4 minutes until the glaze starts to caramelize the tops of each fritter. 

Rotate the baking sheets every minute so they don’t blacken and burn.

Remove fritters from the oven. 

Whisk remaining powdered sugar and apple cider into leftover glaze until it’s smooth and thick . . . brush glaze evenly over broiled fritters. 

Let glaze harden on cookie sheets until set . . . about 15 minutes.


Store in the refrigerator. Reheat in the microwave for 15-20 seconds or in the oven at 350°F for 5-10 minutes.

Servings: 48 fritters

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Baking Time: 20 minutes
