A few weeks ago, my eldest daughter and I took a field trip to the apple orchard with her school and the trip resulted in us bringing home lots of apples.
I like to cook (sometimes), and if you want to consistently eat good food as I do, you have to learn to make things you enjoy eating.
Today I’m sharing an extremely easy ( tried and true) recipe for fired apples. They were delicious, and if you enjoy fried foods and apples ( who doesn’t?) then you will most certainly love this recipe.
If you follow me on snapchat ( @milknhonee) you already knew this recipe was coming. Don’t get left behind… follow me and my adventures on Le Snap ;)
Let’s get fryin’!
For the apple rings , you will need
4 large apples
1 cup flour ¼ teaspoon baking powder 2 tablespoons sugar ¼ teaspoon salt ⅛ teaspoon cinnamon
1 large egg, beaten 1 cup buttermilk
vegetable oil for frying
for the cinnamon sugar topping you will need:
⅓ cup sugar 2 teaspoons cinnamon
What to do next :
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and ⅛ teaspoon cinnamon and set it aside.
In a small bowl combine the egg and buttermilk and in a third bowl mix that sugary goodness that is your cinnamon-sugar topping by combining the ⅓ cup sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon. Set it aside.
Time to slice the apples, I used the top of Micah’s baby bottles ( hahahha) because I couldn’t find a cookie cutter to save my life. I would suggest you use biscuit cutters or cookie cutters.
Discard the center circles containing the apple core and make sure to pat the apple rings down with a paper towel to remove excess moisture.
Heat the oil in a frying pan and combine the contents of the first and second dishes as the oil warms up, that combination will be your batter.
Dip the apple rings in and out of the batter one at a time. Fry the rings in small batches so not to crowd the pan, turn them to ensure browning on both sides.
Once the rings are golden and crispy, transfer them to a plate lined with paper towel for a few seconds. Quickly transfer the apple rings, one by one, into the cinnamon-sugar mixture and coat evenly. Transfer to a wire rack and serve warm. –
