APPLE FRITTER RINGS

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sweet’N Low® (2 packets) , or 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 1/4 cups low-fat buttermilk
  • splash of vanilla
  • 4 large apples
  • vegetable oil, for frying

For the Cinnamon-Sugar Topping

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Sweet’N Low® (6 packets) , or 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon

Directions

  1. Line a baking sheet with paper towels; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, Sweet’N Low, cinnamon, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt. Add in the egg, buttermilk, and vanilla; stir until just combined.
  3. Slice the apples into 1/4-inch-thick rounds. Remove and discard the center core of each slice with a tiny cookie cutter or apple corer.
  4. Add about 2 inches of oil to a large heavy-bottomed pot set over medium heat, until it reaches 350 degrees F. 
  5. Dip each apple ring into the batter, shaking off any excess. Carefully lower the ring into the oil. Fry apple rings 3 or 4 at a time, but don’t allow them to touch, for about 1 minute per side, or until golden. 
  6. Using tongs, transfer them to the paper towels.
  7. Repeat the process with the remaining apple slices.
  8. While still warm, sprinkle them with the cinnamon-sugar mixture. 
  9. Serve and enjoy!
