Step 1: What You Will Need.


1 egg

2/3 cup milk

1 teaspoon vegetable oil

1 cup all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

Pinch of salt

Apples (I used Honeycrisp apples)

Vegetable oil (for deep frying)

Cinnamon and sugar to sprinkle over doughnuts

Step 2: Prep Your Apples.

Peel, core, and slice your apples. mine are about 1/2 inch thick. If you are using a deep fryer, turn it on now and get it to about 375 degrees F.

Step 3: Mix Wet Ingredients

Mix the egg, milk and oil in a bowl.

Step 4: Mix Dry Ingredients

Mix flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Combine with wet mixture.

Step 5: Batter Up.

Dip your apples in the patter making sure they are fully covered. The batter is pretty thick, but if you find it is not sticking to your apple slices, try patting them dry with some paper towel,

Step 6: Fry Time

Drop the battered apples in the fryer for about 3 minutes or until crispy and brown.

Step 7: Some Extra Flavour

Pull them from the fryer and quickly sprinkle a mixture of sugar/cinnamon.

Step 8: Enjoy

And that's it. Serve warm with ice cream or on their own. I find they go soggy after a couple hours, so I would not suggest making these for the next day, besides the prep and cook time is only about 30 minutes. I also got about 10 doughnuts from the batter (made some funnel cake with the leftovers)

I hope you have enjoyed this Instructable and let me know if you have made them or maybe improved them (I am going to add caramel to the top next time.

Dad and I found that mixing wet and dry separately, then blending made our batter watery. Instead, we mixed the ingredients as they were listed and added 3 tsp. of milk. They turned out better that way. Thanks for sharing! Will definitely make again. We were thinking of making a cinnamon/sugar glaze next time using powdered sugar and milk.

Ok, please help me out with this, someone.

I'm a relatively healthy guy. I eat apples mostly because they're good for me and partially because they taste good. (maybe I should try better apples, eh?) This Instructable confuses me. Is this sort of healthy, slightly healthy at all, or 'come on, now. You only live once' ?

The health level depends on how long they cook and how much cinnamon and sugar powder you choose to use. Frozen yogurt would be better than serving with ice cream. I did and it was just as delish.

You could substitute the egg, the sugar, and the flour and maybe use a healthier oil, but like you said, you only live once..... Or you could use small apples and convince yourself you are not eating as many;)

Cheers, when made in our house, they don't last long. With respect to the egg substitute, there are many options. 1/4 puréed banana should substitute the egg. Have a look at this link, some great ideas for egg substitutes.

Mmm, they look scrummy and I can't wait to try the recipe ... but aren't they fritters, rather than doughnuts?
