Get The Batter Right

The trick to these fried apples is all about making sure the consistency of the batter is correct. Mix the pancake batter as directed then thin it out a little bit. The pancake batter shouldn’t coat the apple thick it should lightly coat the apple slices.

Once it is coated well then place it into the hot oil. Be careful! This is the step that you need to use a digital thermometer to make sure the oil temperature is right. This is key to having a soft apple and crispy outside.

Frying Temperatures:

Bring the oil temperature to 350 degrees F. It works well being between 350 and 375. If you go under then it cooks too slow making the apple mush and the batter not tasty. If you go to high the apple cooks fast but so does the batter!

Getting the temperature right is important so it comes out super tasty. Make sure to peel the apples. The peel just doesn’t taste great texture wise when frying.

After frying the apple slices be sure to let them cool for just two to three minutes before tossing in the cinnamon sugar mix. This way it doesn’t get super soggy. Serve the deep fried apples up warm is best!

I love these both for the 4th of July because apples are so patriotic. I also love making these fried apples in Fall. It’s the perfect Autumn dessert. Make the apples and serve them up as a warm dessert while watching backyard movies.

This recipe for fried apples is also wonderful during apple season and fair season. It’s a great way to do breakfast a little different. I just love making these apples because it is different.
