I came across this recipe on Facebook.  I tried it, and it turned out great; so I thought I would share it with you!  SOURCES:  Photo credit & adapted recipe found here.  Original recipe found here.

Fried Apple Cinnamon Rings!

For the Apple Rings:  

4 large apples - ANY variety  (I used green apples, not pictured)

1 cup flour

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

2 tablespoons sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1 large egg, beaten

1 cup buttermilk

approx. 1 cup of either canola or vegetable oil for frying

For the cinnamon sugar topping:

1/2 cup sugar

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon


In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon. Set aside.  In a small bowl combine the egg and buttermilk.  In a third dish, make your cinnamon-sugar topping by combining the sugar and cinnamon.  Set that aside also.

Next, slice the apples into 1/4 inch thick slices, and use circle biscuit cutters in graduated sizes to make rings out of each slice.  Discard the center circles containing the apple core.

Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat to 350°F.  As the oil heats up, combine your first two bowls, of the liquid & dry ingredients, together.  This will be your batter.  Dip the apple rings in and out of the batter one at a time, remove any excess by tapping the rings against the side of the bowl.

Fry the rings in small batches, turning them to ensure browning on both sides.  Once the rings are golden & crispy, quickly transfer them, one by one, into the cinnamon-sugar mixture, coating evenly on both sides.  Serve warm (w/ a drizzle or small pot of caramel for dipping, if desired).

Note: Apples go a long way in this recipe.  And this dish doesn't keep well, so only make what you can eat right away.  Instead of using 4 large apples, I used about 6 small ones.  Half way through the recipe I realized I prepped more apples than we could eat, so I ended up sharing half of them with the neighbors.  This was a tasty treat everyone enjoyed, so I'll definitely be making it again!
