Fried Apple Rings

Cooking time: 30 minutes

Prep. time: 20 minutes

Total time: 50 minutes

Yield: 25/30 slices

Ingredients:

  • 3 apples (I like the Pink lady variety or green ones) – around 600gr in total
  • 1 lemon or lemon juice (4/5 tablespoon)
  • 2 eggs
  • 180gr of milk
  • 120gr all-purpose flour
  • baking powder 8 g
  • pinch of salt
  • frying oil (sunflower seed, refined rapeseed or peanut oil)
  • sugar 20gr
  • cinnamon powder 5gr (I love it so I add more than this)

Steps

  1. Squeeze the lemon to obtain the juice, it helps to prevent the oxidation process
  2. Peel the apples by using a peeler and an apple corer
  3. Cut the apples into slices (about 5/7 mm thick depending on how you like them)
  4. Sprinkle the apple slices with lemon juice to prevent oxidation
  5. Whisk the whole eggs in a bowl and add milk
  6. Add salt, flour and baking powder
  7. Combine all ingredients until smooth and uniform
  8. Heat the oil in a large pan until 170° – don’t exceed this temperature or oil will burn
  9. Dip your apple slices into your batter allowing excess batter to drip off
  10. Fry few slices at a time into the preheated oil (not too many or the temperature will drop)
  11. Cook each side for 2/3 minutes until golden brown color is reached
  12. Lay slices on a tray lined with paper towels to drip excess oil off
  13. Mix cinnamon with sugar
  14. Sprinkle the slices with the flavoured sugar and serve hot

This is one of my favourite afternoon snacks: I love to prepare it when outside is cold but love to eat it all year long! Is not something I would do on a regular basis, though. You can use any type of apple you have or like or even use hard variety pears and pineapple.
