Fried Apple Rings

by Emma on September 25, 2011

in Dessert,Snacks

I like to, on occasion, fry things. I’ve made fried pickles, fried cheese and a number of fried desserts. But this time of year I am just obsessed with apples. And pumpkins. And sweaters.

No this story does not end with a fried sweater. That would be gross. And, um… really weird.

I decided to make friend apple rings. Simple, crunchy and delicious. I think these are a perfect little lunch dessert, or a great afternoon snack. It’s kind of like an apple donut but with more apple and less bread. Not that these are health food, they is not. They is just wonderful.

The end.

Fried Apple Rings, makes as many as you like

Needed: sour apples (like Granny Smith), panko bread crumbs (or other plain flavored bread crumbs), 1/2 cup sugar, 2-3 teaspoons cinnamon, 1-2 eggs, 1/4 cup flour and (pure) maple syrup for serving.

Peel, core and slice your apples into thick rings. I usually soak my cut apple pieces in water while I prepare everything else, as this helps them not to turn brown as quickly. (oxidation or something…. what am I, a scientist?)

In a large pot or dutch oven heat 2-3 inches of (vegetable or other plain flavored) oil over medium low heat.

Now you are going to need two shallow plates and one shallow bowl. In one plate place the flour. In the bowl whisk one or two eggs. And in the last plate mix together the bread crumbs, sugar and cinnamon.

Dip a dried apple slice in the flour, then the egg, then in the bread crumbs then fry in the hot oil. Using tongs flip the apple slice over 1-2 minutes so it can cook on each side. When it’s done (brown and crispy) remove from oil and place on a plate with paper towels. Once you get the hang of it you can fry a few rings at once.

Serve warm with a little more cinnamon sprinkled over and maple syrup for dipping. If you’re a dipper. I am.

These look amazing. I too like to fry food once in a while. What a perfect fried autumn food :) .

Oh. Goodness. These sound DELICIOUS! Since I can’t eat eggs, I think I’ll get the crumbs to stick together using caramel – perfect fall treat!

These sound/look amazingly delicious. I will hopefully be going apple picking sometime in the (very) near future, so I will have to try these!

Also, I have been pretty terrible at commenting as of late, but your blog posts always crack me up.

I am so glad you posted this! My husband is really into cooking apples in butter on the stove, and while they are nothing to sneeze at, I am getting a little sick of them.

And we have apples. So many apples.

This is a great way to change things up a bit!

Best, Kate

Yep, these look amazing! What a great idea…this blog is kind of a bad influence on the old waistline, however.

These are lovely! I deep-fried for the first time earlier this year, so I’m not as scared of frying as I used to be!

I’m definitely with you on the apple/pumpkin/sweater obsession (although I would agree that sweaters probably shouldn’t be fried). I think part of it must have been the brutal summer we had here in the midwest. I was looking forward to autumn in June!
