Happy Cooking!
1 tbsp powdered sugar
2 tbsp lemon juice
For the Dough
125 g flour
1 tbsp sunflower oil
125 ml light beer (lager)
1 dash of salt
80 g sugar
For the Cinnamon Sauce
500 ml milk
3 egg yolks
2 tbsp sugar
1 vanilla bean, vanilla paste or vanilla extract
2 tbsp potato starch
1 tbsp cinnamon
– Peel apples, remove core, slice in 1 cm or 1/4 inch thick slices.
– Dust with powdered sugar and lemon juice. Cover them.
– For the beer dough separate eggs; bring milk with vanilla to a boil.
– Make the beer dough by mixing beer, egg yolks, sugar and salt; dough should be thick, then add oil.
– Beat egg white until firm and mix it carefully under the dough.
– Turn apple slices in the dough and deep fry them on 320 F or 160 C until they are brown.
– Place on kitchen paper (will soak the oil).
– Dust with powdered sugar before serving.
Or Make the Cinnamon Sauce from Scratch
– Beat egg yolk, starch cinnamon and sugar in a small pot, then add hot milk.
– Heat the sauce but don’t bring it to a boil as the egg yolk should not get clotted but the starch needs a fairly high temperature.
– Stir continuously while heating.
– Strain it by using a sieve and serve it hot or semi hot with the baked apple slices.
