Crunchy sliced fried apples that are served at breakfast (usually) with cinnamon and sugar. Commonly served in Israel. Given to me by a good friend. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • In a shallow bowl, stir together the flour and salt. Whisk in the eggs, 1 tablespoon of oil, milk, and water until batter is smooth. The batter should be just thick enough to stick to the apples and coat them. If the batter is too thin, more flour may be added. If the batter does not want to stick, toss the apples with a bit of flour.

  • Heat one inch of vegetable oil in a deep heavy skillet to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Coat apple slices with batter, and place 4 or 5 slices into the hot oil at a time. Fry until golden on one side, then use tongs to flip and fry until brown on the other side. Drain on paper towels. Stir together the cinnamon and sugar; sprinkle over the apple slices before serving.

Everyone at my house loves this recipe, especially the children and all of their friends. I did change the batter recipe a bit though, I added 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1 tablespoon of vanilla. Be sure to dust both sides of the apple with the cinnamon and sugar immediately after removing from oil Read More

This was pretty yummy. It wasn't crunchy like I expected but maybe I needed to fry it longer. We only used have the apples before we ran out of batter. That could have been from putting too much on each or having too many slices. Tasty. Read More

really good and really easy to make though the batter was a bit bland. if i make it again i'll probably add cinamon to the batter too. i took it to a BBQ as a desert but it'd be great at a morning playdate with coffee. Read More

This was pretty good. I followed some of the other reviewers tips and added a little vanilla and a little cinnamon to the batter before frying the apples. My husband really liked them! Read More
