The Best Apple Fritters Recipe from an Heirloom Cookbook

The best heirloom apple fritter recipe - These easy and gluten-free apple fritters are like no other you've ever tasted! There's no flour! Coming from a cookbook from 1910, this simple dessert is sure to please your whole crowd. Just sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve!

Joe, Grace, and I visited my Grandma this past weekend.

Some of the best times in my life have taken place at her house.

While we were at my Grandma's house, she brought out this old cookbook.

As you might imagine, I said, “My Dear Readers will love that!” and quickly brought out my camera to began photographing it.

The first thing my Grandma pointed out to me was that the owner, Kate Rodgers, signed her name on the top of the book, along with the date on which she received it. Kate Rodgers was my grandmother's mother's cousin. The Rodgers were early settlers of Tennessee, and many of them still live there.

Though Kate Rodgers wrote October 24, 1912 on top of the  Gold Medal Flour Cook Book, its copyright date is 1910.

The illustrations and recipes in the book are amazing. I'm saving most of them for another post.

Let me shift gears to say that Joe, Grace and I stopped at Baby's 1950's-style diner in State College on the way home from Grandma's house.

After lunch, we got dessert.

Joe ordered apple fritter a la mode, and I ordered a hot fudge cookie sundae. They were both delicious, of course.

When I arrived home, I noticed that the apple fritter recipe in the Gold Medal Flour Cook Book was very similar to the dessert Joe ate at Baby's.

I simplified and typed the recipe below, too.
