5 cooking apples, peeled, cored and cut into 4 rings.
3/4 confectioners’ sugar
1 lemon, sliced
2/3 cup brown sugar
4 tbsp. clear honey
1 cup water
Juice of 2 lemons
For syrup, add sugar, honey and water into a large saucepan. Bring to boil, then boil for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in lemon juice.
1 cup flour
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tsp. sugar
3 egg yolks
3/4 cup water
3 egg whites, stiffly beaten
Vegetable oil for deep fry
Sift the flour and salt into a bowl and stir in the sugar. Beat in the egg yolks and water until the mixture forms a smooth batter. Quickly fold in the egg whites.
Drop the apple rings into the syrup and carefully stir the apples to coat the rings thoroughly with the syrup. Set aside for 1 hour.
Using a slotted spoon, transfer the apple rings to the batter, and stir to coat them completely. Discard the syrup. Set the apples aside.
Fill a large saucepan one-third full with oil and heat until it reaches 350 degrees Fahrenheit on a deep fat thermometer.
Carefully lower the apple rings into the oil, a few at a time, and fry for 2 to 3 minutes, or until they turn golden brown and crisp. Remove from the oil and drain on kitchen towels.
Put the confectioners’ (icing) sugar on a large plate. Dip the apples in the sugar and arrange them on a serving dish.
Decorate with lemon slices.
