Air Fryer Buttermilk Apple Fritters Recipe – Tasting Table

Now that you’ve made your air fryer apple fritters, you might be wondering what to enjoy them with. They’re perfect for dessert after a comforting meal, so of course you can enjoy them on their own, but adding a dollop of cool whipped cream or vanilla ice cream would take them up a notch. For a holiday gathering, apple fritters make an excellent addition to a dessert table. Whip up some other small baked goods, like pumpkin spice cupcakes or 5 ingredient pumpkin cookies, and serve them together on a large platter so guests can have options. 

You could just go for a tall glass of cold milk — oat, almond, soy, or dairy — but some special fall-themed beverages will make for a full festive experience. For extra warmth and comfort try making a hot beverage — hot chocolate, hazelnut coffee, or spicy chai are all great options. A big batch of mulled apple cider would be perfect with these, especially if you’re serving them at a holiday party. Our slow-cooked version can be prepared ahead of time and be left simmering while the fritters bake. If you’re feeling boozy, an autumnal cocktail would go nicely with these fritters.
