Truth: everything tastes better when deep fried--and that includes these deep fried apple rings! Cinnamon and sugar give these Granny Smith apples a classic apple dessert feel, while deep frying adds a delicious twist. The apples can be deep fried in a heavy skillet if you don't have a deep fryer on hand.

Two deep fried apple rings on a red plate, topped with cinnamon and sugar.

 4 large granny smith apples (peeled, cored, and sliced into 1/2" rings)
  cup flour
 1 pinch salt
 2 eggs
 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  cup milk
 ¼ cup water
 oil for frying
 ½ tsp ground cinnamon
 2 tbsp sugar

Stir flour and salt together in a small bowl. Whisk in eggs, 1 Tbsp. oil, milk and water until smooth.


Heat oil in a heavy skillet or deep fryer to 375°; coat apples in batter and place in hot oil four at a time. Fry until golden brown (about 2 minutes) then flip and fry other side until golden brown. Remove from oil to drain on paper towels. Stir together cinnamon and sugar and sprinkle on apples. Enjoy!
