How to make fried battered apple rings 

Make the batter:

In a bowl combine flour, eggs, sugar, a pinch of salt and milk and whisk to a smooth cream.

If you would like your battered apple rings to be fluffy, just separate the eggs. In a separate bowl combine egg yolks, flour, milk, sugar and salt and whisk until smooth and stir in beaten egg whites. You can also add 1 – 2 tablespoons sparkling water to the batter.

Peel, cut and core the apples:

Next, peel the apples, cut into rings and remove the core.

Make cinnamon sugar:

Mix cinnamon and sugar together. If you have an empty seasoning bottle, just fill it with your cinnamon sugar.

Fry the battered apple rings:

Heat butter or sunflower oil in a skillet at medium high heat.

Using a spoon, dip the apple rings in the batter.

Once the oil is hot enough, but not too hot, lower the heat to medium low and fry the battered apple rings on both sides, until light golden brown.

Remove from the skillet and place the fried apple rings on a plate and sprinkle them with cinnamon sugar immediately.

Repeat the process until you have used up the apple rings and batter. If you have batter left, just peel another apple or use bananas if you have some home.
