I’ve said it before, but in case you’re new to following me, my husband loves apples. So if I cook a fruit it tends to be apples (or bananas which my sons love). This week I was thinking about onion rings and I had to test the Baby Bullet, so I got the idea to make apple rings … a sweet dessert ring using apples. You’ll notice the batter typically filled in the circle, and made the creation look more like a pancake, but never the less this dessert is delish and can be used for a breakfast, brunch, or brinner too. YUM! And kind of a fancy spin on two loved culinary items – onion rings and pancakes. PLUS, you’re getting some added fruit in your diet; BONUS!
Gather the ingredients:
Combine all of the ingredients.
Drudge apple slices though batter. Fry on griddle.
Apple Ring Cakes Recipe
2 Tablespoons honey
1 cup flour – I used ½ whole wheat and half all purpose.
½ teaspoon salt
½ Tablespoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 cup milk
1 Tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
4 medium sized apples, skinned, cored and cut into ¼ inch slices
1. Preheat griddle to “pancake” setting. On my gas stovetop griddle I heat it to 7 out of 10.
2. By hand with a whisk, in a blender, Magic Bullet or Baby Bullet combine all ingredients until thoroughly combined.
3. Drudge apple slices though batter. Fry on griddle. When bubble pop on surface, flip and fry other size. Both sides should be equally golden brown.
4. Remove and serve immediately OR cool on rack. Top with powdered sugar to serve. And if you’re in the mood for a caramel apple add a side for dipping.
I think having a “squirt bottle” to apply batter to the apples will earn a better ring whereas dredging my rings had a lot of batter and the holes were filled in with batter, but made for a good looking pancake.
There are other variations I’m going to try sometime … I’ll let you in on those adventures in my kitchen too! Stay posted …
