Battered Apple Rings – Vegan MoFo

I am going to switch gears halfway through our month of Vegan MoFo. From here on out I am going to provide you with an assortment of easy desserts using minimally refined sweeteners, starting with this gem:  Battered Apple Rings.IMG_20130915_121736

This recipe makes enough batter for one medium apple. I haven’t tried other flours, yet, but I am sure barley flour will work. You can also try a gluten-free mix, but I don’t think just rice flour would taste very good. Let me know if you try this with alternate flours.

Battered Apple Rings

Recipe makes enough for about 2 people.

1 medium cooking apple, washed
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk (I am liking oat milk these days)
1 Tbsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
a pinch or two of sea salt
oil for frying

1.  Place the apple on its side and slice into circles a little less than 1/2 inch thick. Use a knife or a small circle cookie cutter to remove the core from the center of the apple slices.

2.  In a medium size bowl, preferably with a flat bottom, mix all ingredients except for the apples and oil.

3.  Heat a skillet to medium and add enough oil to lightly coat the bottom of skillet. Dry the apple slices a bit if they are wet, to help the batter stick. One at a time, dip the apples in the batter until coated evenly and place on hot skillet. Fry each side of battered apple until golden and remove to plate. Continue cooking until all the apple slices are fried.

4.  These are best eaten hot.

    • It is so simple, I wasn’t really sure it would work. But, it does as long as the batter sticks. You want it just thick enough. Plus the apple gets hot and semi-cooked. Super fun, easy and different. This is the kind of thing I could see my great-grandmother making on the wood stove. 🙂
