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!

Try using nutmeg or mace instead of cinnamon. You will be amazed at how well these spices really bring out the peach flavor. But only use about half as much because these spices are more potent than cinnamon.
Just finished making these. Omg! The deliciousness should be a sin!
Anonymous thank you so much for coming back to tell me you made and loved them! It’s amazing how something so easy could be so GOOD!!
Love this recipe. I just bought some fresh peaches today from my Amish neighbor. I will be busy this evening. Whenever I use cinnamon in a recipe I always use 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. of fresh grated nutmeg. Love the combination.
Made these this morning for a sweet breakfast. I didn’t put a lot of glaze on them. Told my 3yr old they were donuts cause he will actually eat a donut, lol. We all loved them 🙂 Thanks for the easy recipe!
Your welcome Jenni!! 3 yr olds can be picky when it comes to food. I remember my son only wanting hot dogs what what seemed like forever. so happy he loved them!!
All purpose or self rising flour ?
Hi Brittany, all purpose flour.
I have never had a fritter of any kind before but these look SO good. Im going to pin this to make later because I think my husband would love them!
Stephanie I know my husband loved them! Thank you for pinning!
I feel like fritters are one of those foods that have fallen to the wayside in recent years… I’m glad to see I’m not the only one who makes them (and to have a new recipe to try!).
Thank you Jerusha! I guess it helped that i worked at a restaurant that would make homemade apple fritters and then use them in sundaes!
I have made apple fritters many times, but never thought of putting peaches in them. They look so yummy!
Thank you Bev, you’ll love these fritters. They’re so easy to make a delicious!
Oh heavenly! Pinned for later.
Thank you Theresa!!
Oooooh, girl! These look fabulous! I wait in line at Thomas’ Donuts for an apple fritter in Panama City Beach whenever we go on vacation. I would totally stand in line for these. Yum! Sharing on FB!
Thank you Jenna!
These look amazing! I would love for you to share at this weeks Happiness Is Homemade Link Party! Happiness Is Homemade Link Party http://wp.me/p466oG-2si
Have a terrific week!! Cathy
Thank you Cathy!
From one displaced Pennsylvanian to another thank you for this. I made them with nectarines and they were the perfect thing after a bad day!
Nice adaption Michelle, I bet they were great!!
I love apple fritters, and peach sound even better!!!
Thank you Cathy!
Can you please tell me, can you freeze these after you fry them. I made them, sat down to have one…… but they were already gone. Darn that peach fairy. Just thought maybe I could get ahead.
Cindy I’m happy they were a hit at your house! I’ve never frozen them because the same thing happens at my house when I made them. They disappear before you know it!
When it says to put the fritters in the bowl of sugar, is this the glaze or just regular sugar?
Good morning Sarah! The sugar would be just sugar (regular sugar) if you wanted to coat them instead of glazing them.
I been looking for easy desserts to do after dinner this is perfect however my husand isn’t a fan of peaches can I use canned apples for pie filling or frozen apples.
Lisa, canned apples would probably be better, minus the liquid if that’s possible. The peaches I used were very ripe so canned apples wouldn’t be much different that very ripe peaches. Let me know how it goes!
Ooo! These are delicious, made them earlier today for a road trip this afternoon. I doubled the recipe and it worked great, except the salt, I’ll try 1 1/2 tsp. next time. I used peaches I canned last summer and diced them while on a couple paper towels. So happy with this! ! Thank you:-)
Thank you Sue!
Oh my word, I just can’t even, these look so good!! Filing this away until peach season. Thinking that ginger in the glaze could be something really special- I just love ginger and peaches together.
…Then again, it’s hard to make a peach taste bad 🙂
Kirsten ginger would be a very nice addition!
Should the fresh peaches be peeled?
Hi Heather, yes the peaches should be peeled. You can peel them easier if you put them in boiling water for a minute or two. The skins come off very easily.
