Fried Apple Rings Recipe

Fried Apple Rings Recipe

What is not to love about onion rings? Fried, salty and the perfect vehicle for a variety of condiments. Every time I partake I think about what other wonders would be great in this format. Apples are always my first thought. So here you go, fried apple rings for your enjoyment. Perfect for your next football gathering or just because!

1 large egg
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 large Granny Smith apples
Canola oil for frying
Sea salt for finishing

1. Combine all dry ingredients–flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

2. Whisk the one egg and then whisk in the buttermilk.

3. Slice apples into 1/4 inch thick slices using varying sized biscuit cutters to make "rings" out of the slices, discarding smallest circle containing core.

4. Heat oil to 375°F. (Caution: Don't let oil get too hot — your rings will burn quickly. If rings are cooking too quickly, lower the heat of the oil a bit.) Combine the liquid and dry ingredients while the oil heats up.

5. Dip apple rings into batter, removing any excess. A little is okay, it gives them a nice swirly look. Cook in oil in small batches, turning frequently to monitor browning.

6. When the rings are golden brown, remove to a wire rack and sprinkle with sea salt.

Enjoy!

    • Brother Westhill says:

      Apple rings are interesting but breaded onion rings are the sure classic.

  4. tiny pasta says:

    i though you were going to be cooking stoned.
    lol i got excited

  5. Jerry James Stone says:

    You can definitely do that and make them dessert like. I used them as an
    onion ring subsitute so I didn’t want it dessert like.

  6. ThomasPaine3 says:

    those look good. This is just a suggestion. How about adding some
    cinnamon/sugar. Either rubbing it directly to the apple slices before
    coating or to the batter or both.

  7. Jerry James Stone says:

    I know you can substitue corn starch instead of flour for thickening but
    not sure to this degree. You need baking soda and cream of tartar to make
    baking powder. Mix 2 parts cream of tartar with 1 part baking soda.

  17. Jerry James Stone says:

    You could. I made them salty sweet but you could make them dessertish.

  18. Katie KitKat says:

    what if you don’t have butter milk??

    • dudeplusfood says:

      Sub out buttermilk with regular milk and a small amount of either lemon
      juice or vinegar. Worked like a charm for me!
