Made a new recipe for New Year’s Day, a dutch recipe that we’ve not tried before. AppelFlappen. Turned out well.
You can find the original recipe here.
6 baking apples (Spy, Red Delicious and Granny Smith work well)
1 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1⁄4 teaspoon salt
1⁄2 cup milk
Peel and core apples, cut into slices to form rings about 1/2 inch thick. We made a couple of rings and then decided it was easier to just do small chunks.
Beat egg into milk and add to dry ingredients. result should be the consistency of pancake batter. We needed more milk than the recipe called for.
Dip apple rings into batter and deep fry at 350* until golden brown on both sides. do not overcrowd, fry 3 or 4 slices at a time allowing plenty of space to flip the slices over.
Drain on paper towels and let cool for 30 minutes.
Place on a tray and sprinkle with icing sugar. (also good plain).
