Fluffy, soft, moist and loaded with fresh peaches…Peach Fritters!
The recipe is very easy to make. After the ingredients are measured out and the peaches are peeled and diced it literally just takes minutes to put the recipe together. Let’s gather the ingredients and make this delicious treat together.
Peach Fritter Ingredients:
1 cup all purpose flour
1 Teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons white sugar
1 Teaspoon baking powder
1/2 Teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup milk
1 Tablespoon melted butter
1 1/4 cups diced peaches ( I used 2 fresh peaches which came to a little over 1 1/4 cups peaches
Oil for frying in a pan or a deep fryer
Powdered Sugar Glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
milk, enough to make a drizzling consistency
Place the flour, salt, sugar, cinnamon and baking soda in a large bowl. Whisk the ingredients together until they are well combined.
Whisk the eggs, milk, and melted butter into the flour ingredients until they are well combined.
Peach Fritters Steps
Fold the peeled, pitted and cubed peaches into the batter. Set the batter aside for a minute while we heat the oil up to fry the fritters.
You can use a frying pan or an electric fryer with oil if you have one. My favorite way to fry them is using a medium size saucepan, but I really should give in and buy an electric fryer.
I fill the saucepan will oil, half way up the pan. I heat the oil to hot and then drop 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup batter into the hot oil. The batter will sink at first and then rise to the top of the oil. Cook the batter for 2 – 3 minutes, depending on the size of the fritters. While they are frying flip them over a couple times if need be to get a nice golden color on both sides of the fritter.
Remove the fritters from the hot oil with long handled tongs. Quickly drain the fritters on paper towels. You have two options to coat the fritters. You can either have a bowl of granulated sugar ready to coat them in after they are fried and drained or make a simple glaze with confectioners sugar and milk.
Things to Keep in Mind
You’ll notice there’s no confectioners sugar amount in the recipe to make the glaze. Just put confectioners sugar in a bowl, add as little or as much milk as you want to the confectioners sugar to get the drizzling consistency you want. It’s really just that easy to make. If you add a tad more milk than you wanted to, just add a little more confectioners sugar to the bowl and stir it in until it’s the consistency you were looking for. Place the Peach Fritters on a wire rack and drizzle the fritters with the glaze.
Now while you have those “just make” Peach Fritters on hand, try making yourself a Peach Fritter Sundae darlin, (peach fritters, vanilla ice cream, maybe a sprinkle of pecans and caramel sauce) you”ll love it. Delicious Fresh Peach Fritters, use those fresh peaches while you’ve got them to make this delicious easy treat! ENJOY!

I used to stand in line at our local farmers market for apple fritters but would push to the front of the line for peach fritters:D
Yummy! Can these be made one day ahead without them suffering to much or best not to make ahead?
Fritters – yum! I was just talking about fritters the other day! I so want to make some. Do you think if I used Apple I would have to cook them first? Can’t wait to try this recipe!

Aviva, they really are best eaten the day you make them. If you wanted to make them one day, but not put the glaze on them and reheat them in the microwave that might work.
Val you made me laugh! I’d be right there with you!
Lisa, You could saute the apples first, that would give them an awesome flavor in the fritter! And you could use ice cream caramel on top and have CARAMEL APPLE FRITTERS!!! Let me know what you do, I can’t wait to see them!
Yum! Now is the perfect time to make this. The road side markets are loaded with juicy peaches.
These look Delicious!
i’ve never been a fan of apple fritters. Buuuuuuut, peaches! I’d shove Val aside, to get my hands on these. Mouth watering photos, girlfriend!
Lisa I hope you get a chance to make them they were so easy and good!
Donna they were wonderful!
Debby ! LOL!!! I’ll swap you peach fritters for your PUMPKIN SCONES!!!!
Does the oil have to be deep enough to cover the fritter?
Anonymous, you don’t want to just coat the pan with oil to fry them. They do need more oil than that. I’d say use a small sauce pan so you don’t use alot of oil. They do need to float in it so you can turn them over to fry the other side.
Can I use caned peaches ??
Paula, YES you can use canned peaches!!
