Apple Cinnamon Rings


*** Recipes Tutorials ***


I think Fridays need to be a National Holiday. All day Friday should be happy hours, happy prices, happy people! I also think that Fridays need to come with a sweet weekend recipe because, as we all know, weekend calories don’t count. And when life gives you apples…i know you probably wanted to say Apple Pie, but pretend for this time and say Apple rings.
Ingredients
4 large     apples (any variety)
1 cup     all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp   baking powder
2 tablespoons     sugar
1/4 teaspoon     salt
1/8 teaspoon     ground cinnamon
1 large     egg
1 cup (250 ml)     buttermilk
1/2 cup     canola oil, for frying

Cinnamon Sugar Coating
3 tablespoons     sugar
1 teaspoon     ground cinnamon

Instructions
In a large bowl combine the all-purpose flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and ground cinnamon. Set aside. In a small bowl combine the egg and buttermilk. Combine the sugar and ground cinnamon and set the mixture aside in a plate.

Slice the apples into slices which are 1/4 inch thick. Use circle biscuit cutters in graduated sizes to make ‘rings’ out of the slices. Discard the centre circle which contains the core of the apple. You may need to use a paper towel to remove any excess water from the apple so the batter will stick.

Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat or to 350°F (177°C). Combine the liquid and dry ingredients while the oil warms up. Dip the apple rings into the batter, removing any excess by tapping the rings against the side of the bowl. Cook the rings in small batches, turning them frequently to ensure even browning.

When the rings are golden brown and crispy, transfer them to a plate lined with paper towel for a few seconds. Quickly transfer the apple rings, one by one, into the sugar mixture. Flip the ring to ensure that both sides are covered with the cinnamon sugar mixture. Transfer to a wire rack. Serve warm with a drizzle or small pot of caramel for dipping, if desired.
