Fried apples recipe

Growing up, it was a real treat to get fried apples. Once you try homemade fried apples, the canned version simple does not compare.

This easy fried apples recipe is so good with homemade biscuits for breakfast. Enjoy them for lunch or dinner with pork loin, fried chicken or anything you prefer! Honestly, my kids love to just eat a bowl of fried apples alone. They are that yummy!

How do you make fried apples from scratch?

It is so easy and a great use of apples. Homemade fried apples are so easy and once you try them, you won’t go back to store bought. The apples are so much more flavorful and they taste amazing.

I like to use a cast iron skillet and it’s perfect for this recipe. I have the Lodge cast iron skillet but you can see all the different brands here.

Cast iron is amazing! You can make so many different recipes and they are great for skillet recipes.

If you are not already cooking with one, you should! They are amazing and the food cooks so evenly.

Don’t be hesitant to use cast iron because it really is simple to use and maintain. It cooks the food so evenly and recipes turn out great.

Tip for easy fried apples recipe:

Peeling apples can be a chore and I really don’t like peeling apples. I highly recommend that you get an apple peeler. Amazon has some on sale right now and they are worth the small investment. You can peel 10 or 20 apples in half the time with this thing – and clean up is a breeze.

Can you freeze fried apples?

You can freeze fried apples. Just make sure you use an airtight container.

These are the best fried apples!

The brown sugar gives the apples just the perfect amount of sweetness. This is the best comfort food and we all love southern fried apples.

If you want an easy but tasty recipe, try serving fried apples for a side dish or dessert. I love to cook these and the sugar and cinnamon make the entire house smell heavenly.

We have used many different types of apples and even a combination of several types. Apple recipes are easy to make and we love pink lady apples, granny smith apples and many others.

Granny Smith apples are a little more tart so keep that in mind if you use that type. I love all types of apples so you simply can’t go wrong!

Whenever we go to Cracker Barrel, everyone wants to order fried apples. Make them at home and save time and money!

You can even use the leftover fried apples to make apple pie. Yum! We love apple recipes and Fall is the perfect time to make friend apples because apples are on sale and plentiful.

Give these a try and let us know how they turn out!

  1. So good smell, i like the smell of cinnamon, it makes relax. Especially love the combination a little bit sour of apple and sweet of brown sugar. I often sprinkle some nuts and dressing up with green basil.
