Step 6

Let the dough rise. Cover the mixer bowl with plastic wrap and place it in a warm place (I usually use the oven on the bread-proof cycle) for about 1 hour so the dough can rise.

Step 7

Heat the fry oil. Fill a heavy-bottomed pot with 1-2 inches of oil and bring the temperature to medium-high heat, about 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Scoop up 1/4 cup of the dough and place it in the pot.

Step 8

Fry the apple fritters. Cook them for about 2-3 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown. Transfer the fritters to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb any excess oil.

Glaze the apple fritters. Once the fritters have cooled, use a slotted spoon to dip each one in the glaze until they are fully covered. Then place them on a cooling rack to let the glaze set.
