    Cheers! I’m a huge donut nut… so I will need to make these stat.

  4. I totally read this recipe on the bus last night!!! Now I really want to try since it has the L+D stamp of approval!

    Happy birthday!!

    PS love my L+D tote :)

  5. Happy Birthday! Your friends surely got a great treat. The fritters look amazing!

  6. So the next logical step might be fried bourbon ice cream?! Happy, happy birthday. You are such an amazing cook!

  7. You are beyond fabulous. This recipe is wondrous. Basically, what I’m trying to say is: wow.

    And happy birthday!

  8. Belated happy birthday! This sounds like the best birthday dessert ever! I’m excited to try this out.

  9. Oh, you guys–you are all so sweet! Thanks for the birthday wishes and for always making this a space I enjoy being in (especially on days when the news of the world is kind of depressing) This is a seriously good recipe, I hope you give it a try and tell me about it.
    And yes, Beth, fried bourbon ice cream is the next step.

  10. One of my favorite restaurants just put apple fritters with cinnamon ice cream on the menu and it was fantastic. The prospect of making this at home is such a beautiful thought, but I’m seriously afraid of deep frying. Thanks for sharing and happy birthday!

  11. Nicole, Deep frying can be intimidating, but shouldn’t be. Push through it, you’ll be glad you did!

  12. Happy Birthday to you…love that first picture. Beautiful!! I like this recipe, so unfussy, and donut like! YUM!!

  13. happy belated birthday!! love LOVE all your recipes + photos. always makes me want to run into the kitchen and try them out~

  14. This looks absolutely amazing. The only problem: I don’t have an ice cream maker. I really should invest in one, but I’m scared of what will happen if I do…

    love your blog :)

  15. Bourbon ice cream sounds amazing. I will have to make it this weekend. I have never seen nonfat dry milk powder in an ice cream recipe though. Do you know its purpose? Happy belated.

  16. Apple fritters!! My favorite? Have you tried a glaze instead of the sugar and cinnamon? Also – what other kinds of apples can you recommend??

  17. Happy Birthday, Tim! This dessert looks NOM NOM NOM. I’ve always been intimidated by custard recipes, but this bourbon one looks really delicious.

    Love your site! Truly beautiful photographs…

  18. Happy birthday! With a dessert like this one how can it be not?

  19. Happy birthday! These fritters and ice cream look amazing!

  20. Hey Martin, A glaze isn’t my speed, so I haven’t tried it. It would make them more difficult to eat and also I don’t like the idea of glaze + ice cream. BUT, if you were just making the fritters I could imagine it being nice. Maybe a cinnamon glaze.
    Thanks for all of the good wishes, everyone!

  21. Lindsey,
    Sometimes dry milk is added to recipes to provide some additional dairy-creaminess without diluting it. You could certainly make this without it.

  22. Happy Birthday, I couldn’t imagine a more delicious birthday dessert…

  23. Happy belated birthday! Wow, those look good. And the ice cream…drooool!

  24. A very Happy Birthday, my dear! As for the dessert, I have a little message for that, too… Sugar, ah honey honey. You are my candy girl. And you’ve got me wanting you. ;)

  25. I’ve been oohing and aahing over that recipe. Now I’m definitely going to have to try it. Next time, invite me please :) Happy birthday!

  26. This kind of sounds like a candidate for a “last meal.” Nothing better than a good apple fritter and bourbon in anything makes me happy. Happy birthday. Sounds like you got yourself a keeper (Bryan) on your hands :)

  27. Hi, Tim. I’m a brand-new reader since spotting your interview over at A Dinner Party, and I can already tell I’ll be back frequently. So many types of hot-pink ice cream here! Thanks for so many good-lookin’ recipes, and happy birthday!

  28. Happy birthday! I bet you had a blast with your friends & this delish dessert! Those apple fritters look great. Your blog is a gem, I will be back for more :)

  29. I stumbled onto your blog from somewhere else, and I’m so glad that I did! Love your recipes – this one especially looks amazing! Happy birthday!!

  41. i saw this apple fritter recipe as well, and thought it would be a perfect way to use some of that peck o’ apples in the fridge. also, anything fried most certainly IS all i need :). happy belated!

  42. Ack! This was a near miss! I had my October issue of Bon Appetit in a stack of magazines I give to a friend when I’ve finished them. And to think, I have a lovely bag of honeycrisps in my kitchen right now. Obviously I need to re-read my magazine. What other recipes did I ignore? Happy Birthday from your Wheaton reader!

  44. Wow, that combination sounds absolutely amazing.

  45. Happy Belated Birthday. The things coming out of the L + D kitchen are looking pretty amazing. I am out of town next week but let’s reschedule lunch soon!

  50. Hey Tim, just discovered your site and love the photos and recipe. This is a great kids type of dish that has a grown up touch with the bourban. Happy birthday and I look forward to reading more great posts.
