Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar packed
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • pinch ground nutmeg
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon butter melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups peaches peeled and chopped (about 1/4" inch size or so)
  • 6 cups vegetable oil for frying (may need more or less depeding on the pot you use to fry the fritters in).

Glaze

  • 2 1/4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch ground cinnamon

Instructions

  • Heat oil in a large pot. Use enough oil that there’s about 2 ½ inches-3 inches in the pot. Oil should be 350°F with an instant read thermometer.
  • In a small bowl, whisk the milk, eggs, butter, and vanilla. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl whisk the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. Whisk the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. 
  • Using a rubber spatula, fold in the chopped peaches. Don’t overmix. 
  • Using a ¼ cup or a large cookie scoop, dollop the batter into the hot oil, cooking 2-3 at a time. Cook the fritters, turning them over so both sides cook, about 2-3 minutes per side for a total of about 4-5 minutes. Fritters should be a deep golden brown. 
  • Use a slotted spoon to scoop the fritters out of the oil. Transfer the fritters to a paper towel lined plate. 
  • Let the fritters cool slightly, then dip in the glaze so that they are coated on all sides. Set the glazed fritters on a cooling rack. Let the glaze set and then serve. Best if eaten the same day they are made.

Glaze

  • Whisk ingredients in a medium sized bowl until smooth. 

Notes

When frying the fritters be sure to check the temperature of the oil. The oil should stay around 350°F. 
The fritters should be a deep brown color. This will ensure the centers are fully cooked.
