Deep-fried sourdough apple fritters make the ultimate comfort snack. While they’re not exactly healthy, they are absolutely delicious, and a great way to make use of any excess sourdough discard.

  • Total Time: 2 minutes


  • 2 diced honeycrisp fresh apples
  • 300g sourdough discard
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. nutmeg
  • ⅛ tsp clove
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 cups of canola oil (for frying)
  • 120g confectioners sugar
  • 1 tbsp Bourbon
  • 3 to 4 tbsp heavy cream


  1. Peel and dice the apples into small ½-inch pieces. In a medium bowl, add the discarded sourdough starter, with cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and salt. Add the apples, and baking soda, then mix thoroughly.
  2. In a deep pan, heat canola oil to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a sheet pan with paper towels, to absorb the oil once the apple fritters are fried.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the icing so that you can add this to your piping hot fritters. In a small bowl, combine sugar, bourbon, and heavy cream. Whisk until the mixture achieves a silky smooth consistency, then set this aside.
  4. Carefully scoop spoonfuls of apple fritter batter into the hot oil. Deep-fry fritters in small batches. Cook the sourdough apple fritters for about 1 minute per side over high heat occasionally adjusting the stove to medium heat, to avoid burning.
  5. Remove the fritters from the pan, and drop them onto the paper towels. Repeat until the batter has finished.
  6. Drizzle the icing over the hot golden brown fritters and serve immediately. You can even top your fritters with powdered sugar if you fancy.
