  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk, (In place of milk, I have used Sugar Free Hazelnut Creamer and it's really good!)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 4 large apples, sliced into 1/4-inch thick slices
  • Canola Oil for Frying
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon


  1. In a small mixing bowl whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

  2. In a separate bowl whisk together milk and egg; add vanilla and whisk until well combined.

  3. Whisk milk mixture into flour mixture; set aside.

  4. Slice apples and cut out the middle part of the apple slices. I use a small round cookie cutter to pop them out.

  5. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-low heat to 375˚F degrees.

  6. Dip the apple rings in the batter then transfer them to the skillet and cook in batches, 1 to 2 minutes per slice, or until golden, turning once to cook the other side.

  7. In a bowl or plate combine sugar and cinnamon; mix well.
  8. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar over the apple rings while still hot.

  9. Serve immediately.
