How to Make Caramel Fried Apples or Bananas


  • 1In a bowl, mix flour, cornstarch and baking powder.
  • 2Add water and stir until smooth.
  • 3Peel and core apples; cut each apple into 3 wedges.
  • 4(If you use bananas, peel and cut in 1/2 inch thick diagonal slices.)
  • 5Place fruit in batter and turn to coat evenly.
  • 6Into a deep pan pour oil to a depth of about 1 1/2 inches.
  • 7Heat oil to 350 degrees.
  • 8Using chopsticks or a spoon, lift one piece of fruit at a time from batter and let excess batter drip off, then lower fruit into hot oil.
  • 9Cook several pieces at a time until coating is golden brown (about 2 minutes).
  • 10Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
  • 11Generously oil a flat serving dish.
  • 12Fill a serving bowl to the brim with ice cubes; cover with water.
  • 13Place sugar, water and oil in a ten inch frying pan; stir to blend.
  • 14Place pan over high heat.
  • 15When mixture begins to bubble (about one minute), shake pan continuously to prevent burning.
  • 16Continue cooking and shaking pan until syrup *just* turns a pale straw color (about 9 minutes).
  • 17Immediately remove from heat, add sesame seeds and swirl to mix.
  • 18(Syrup will continue to cook after you remove it from heat and color will turn golden in a few seconds.)
  • 19Drop fruit into syrup and swirl to coat evenly.
  • 20Using two spoons, immediately remove each piece of fruit and place on oiled dish so pieces do not touch.
  • 21At table, dip each piece of fruit in ice water so coating hardens and fruit cools.
  • 22Serve.
