  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 1/2 c. milk or liquid non-dairy creamer
  • 1 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp. melted unsalted butter or margarine
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • Salt
  • Oil
  • 3 or 4 apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  • Powdered sugar
  • Cinnamon
  • Caramelized Applesauce (see recipe)

In large mixing bowl, beat egg yolks until light. Blend in milk then stir in flour, sugar, butter and lemon juice. Add salt to taste. Beat until smooth. Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form and fold into egg yolk mixture. In large, heavy skillet, heat 1/4 inch oil to about 375 degrees. Dip each apple slice into batter.

Lift out with fork and fry in oil until browned on both sides, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels. Just before serving, sprinkle with powdered sugar and cinnamon. Serve with Caramelized Applesauce.
