How to Make Apple Ring Fritters (and balls)


  1. Put all dry ingredients into a large bowl.
  2. Add eggs, oil, vanilla, and about 1/2 of the can of 7-UP. Stirring to create a thick batter, add more 7-UP as needed.
  3. I don't worry about the batter looking uniform, I like the swirls of cinnamon.
  4. Wash, dry and slice apples, remove the core (I use a cannoli tube, but you can use a knife or small round cutter).
  5. Place apple rings into batter, I use a fork to turn them and remove them from batter.
  6. Put coated apple ring into hot oil for frying.
  7. Use a fork or a slotted spoon to turn apple rings over and to remove them from the hot oil.
  8. Place rings on a paper towel lined platter or in a lined colander.
  9. *** You can also cut up apple and make apple balls.
  10. Sprinkle with either vanilla sugar, cinnamon sugar (or both!)

    ***I use Rodelle Vanilla Sugar or Cinnamon Sugar. I became hooked on Rodelle products after winning a grand prize several years ago... part of the prize was a years supply of Rodelle baking products.
  11. You can use favorite apples, red or green.

    Slice into rings... Or heart shapes. Cut apples up and down to get heart shapes. Remove seeds/core the same as you do the rings.
