You know how they say :An apple a day keeps doctor away.
Well who said in what form this apple should be eaten, right? Ok, maybe it is
better to eat it fresh, but let’s forget about it for the moment, shall we?

Even though it feels like it is more an autumn recipe, I
just could not wait till autumn to share with you with this simple yet
delicious recipe.  Soft, pancake liker from outside with a
warm and fluffy apple inside.  Not to
mention cinnamon and sugar coating. Yum! I feel my mouth start to
water as I type this… Ok, moving on…

Ridiculously easy to make and
only requires few ingredients, that you probably already have in your cupboard,
it quickly became staple snack in our house. And did I mention it is ready
under 25 minutes? So it is a win-win situation for me 🙂
 Or if you looking for simple and trouble-free
dessert, just add a scoop of vanilla ice-cream to the apple fritter and you
have a delicious dessert. Perfect!

Ok, on to the recipe. It is very
straightforward recipe and you should not have any problems. Start by mixing
all your dry ingredients into a medium size bowl. Then in separate bowl beat
egg and milk. Then add your wet ingredients to the dry, mix until
combined.  Set aside.
Cut apples into 0,5 cm thick
slices. Cut the middle of the apple slice, using small cookie cutter or piping
nozzle, discarding them afterwards.

In a large heavy-bottomed pot add
oil. When the oil is around 190 C, start dipping apple rings into batter,
shaking excess batter. Slowly lower into the oil and fry until golden on both
sides. Fry only couple of apple rings at the time. When ready transfer onto
paper towel.
Serve warm, dust with powdered
sugar. Enjoy!
