Fruit Fritters - Gluten-free

(apple fritters to the left , small yellow plum fritters on right)
We love fruit fritters ....and these really taste just as good as the wheat flour ones.
I can't really tell the difference.


1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
Beat with whisk

Mix together 1/3 cup gluten-free bread/bun mix
1/3 cup brown rice flour
1/3 cup tapioca flour
1 tbsp sugar

add dry ingred. to the liquid whisking until perfectly smooth
Add fruit and deep fry.

For apples , I core the apples then cut them in slices, dipping the apples into the batter then frying.
For the little yellow plums I dipped each singly into the batter before frying.
Larger fruit can be cut into pieces and stirred into batter and fried like pancakes.

Serve hot with sugar !!
Enjoy !


  1. My oh my that looks scrumptious!

  2. These fritters look dangerously delicious! What is the name of the strawberry dessert you show in you web page banner? Is it posted on the web site?

  3. What flours/ratios are in your bun flour mix? I have a bunch of gluten free flours and I'd love to use them up on something yummy!

  4. Oh you have no idea how excited I am to see this. My son and I have been missing this type of food. It is difficult to find recipes to trust but I trust your recipes hands down.
    Thank you so much for posting this and can't wait to try it.

  5. WOW! These look amazing. I tried making donuts last weekend without much success - but I'd like to give these a whirl.

    I'd also like to know what flours are in your bun mix - are you using a store bought mix and adding that?

    Thanks for the great blog!

  6. I want to make this today but I too have a question. I have assumed that the flour mix has xanthan gum in it but I wanted to be sure?

  7. Julie--can I use this for New Year's Cookies? :) You're amazing! Hope you're doing well! Been thinking of you quite a bit recently!
