- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- ½ cup cornstarch
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 cup cold water
- 1 egg
- 2 tbsp. vegetable oil
- 2 apples, peeled, cored, sliced into ¼-inch thick rings
- 1 cup sugar, mixed with 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
- As needed, vegetable oil for frying
Sift together into a bowl the first measure of flour, cornstarch, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the water, egg and vegetable oil. Add the liquid to the dry ingredients, whisk until smooth. The batter should be a little thinner than pancake batter. If too thick, add more water, if too thin, add more flour. Reserve.
Heat a deep fryer with vegetable oil to 350-degrees F. Dip each apple slice in the batter. Let excess batter drip off and carefully place in the fryer.
Fry only 3-4 slices at a time until a light golden color. Drain on briefly on paper towels and then dredge in the cinnamon sugar mixture, coating evenly. Great served with caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream.
