  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (240 grams)
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar (150 grams)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ¾ cup buttermilk (175 ml)
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter , melted (55 grams)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups chopped apples , peels removed (225 grams, from about 2-3 apples)
  • Vegetable or canola oil , for frying


  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar (170 grams)
  • ¼ cup whole milk (60 ml)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. In a separate bowl whisk together the buttermilk, butter, eggs and vanilla. Add liquids to the flour mixture and mix until just combined. Add the chopped apples and mix only until incorporated.
  • Preheat a waffle iron and cook waffles according to manufacturer's instructions. Let cool and cut into segments.
  • Pour enough vegetable or canola oil into a heavy bottomed pot so that it's 2 inches deep. Set over medium heat, insert a thermometer, and heat to 360° F.
  • Working with the waffles in small batches, fry until golden brown, about 2 minutes on each side. Use a slotted spoon to remove doughnuts and transfer to a paper towel lined tray to drain.
  • To make the glaze, whisk together the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla extract. Dip the hot doughnuts into the glaze and let sit on a wire rack for 20 minutes before serving.
