Fried Apple Rings
Author: Leia Bushman
  • 1 large apple- I recommend granny smith
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • oil for frying- about 1/4- 1/2 inch deep in your pot
  • optional toppings: powdered sugar cinnamon and sugar, caramel sauce, ice cream, syrup, etc.
  1. Heat oil over medium- high heat in a wide pot. Mix all the batter ingredients together in a medium bowl with a fork. Core the apple, peel it, then slice thin. A large apple should yield about 10-12 slices.
  2. Dip the apple slices into the batter, using a fork to turn it and coat both sides. Carefully set the apple slice into the hot oil and fry until golden brown on one side. Turn the apple over with a slotted spoon and cook on the other side. These cook fast, about 20-40 seconds per side.
  3. Remove the apples with the slotted spoon and let drain on a paper towel for a minute before serving.
  4. Serve the hot, fried apple slices with powdered sugar, or cinnamon and sugar, or syrup. For a richer dessert try them with a scoop of ice cream and/ or some caramel sauce.
