This Baked Peach Fritters recipe requires a handful of simple ingredients and just 30 minutes from start to warm and ready to eat! With a caramelized, crunchy outside and soft, fluffy inside, these baked peach fritters are a fun, easy way to brighten your mornings!
Based off of our favorite Baked Apple Fritters, these baked peach fritters are just as irresistible with the same soft, tender inside and a caramelized, crunchy outside.
Swapping out the apples for peaches and adding a hint of cardamom to the cinnamon gave us a batch of sweet, summer fritters that disappeared in a surprisingly short amount of time!
How to Make Baked Peach Fritters
Making these Baked Peach Fritters is a lot like making scones. You whisk together your dry ingredients, cut in your butter, add in your combined wet ingredients, and stir it all together until just combined.
Then you fold in the chopped fresh peaches until just combined, scoop the batter onto a prepared baking sheet, and bake. Simple.
The sweet, crunchy outside is achieved by placing the fritters under the broiler after brushing them with a light layer of glaze.
Another thin layer of glaze is brushed over top after broiling the fritters to give them a nice, sweet coating.
The hardest part about these fritters is waiting for them to cool off enough to not burn your tongue before digging in!
Tips for Making Baked Peach Fritters
- While I normally am all for using whole wheat flour in recipes, I really recommend that you stick to all-purpose flour or white whole wheat flour. The texture is noticeably different, as well as the flavor. So, if you want to go all whole wheat, just know that it will change things.
- Do not overmix. It will be tempting to mix the batter until everything is smooth. This batter is a lot like a muffin batter where you need to stir just until combined. The result will be a soft, melt-in-your-mouth fritter.
- Don’t have cardamom on hand or don’t like the flavor? Leave it out. The flavor will still be great!
- To get the batter on the baking sheet you can either use a 1/4 cup measuring cup or an ice cream scoop like this one. The measuring cup gives you more nooks and crannies for the glaze to settle into once baked. However, the ice cream scoop is less messy.
