  • 4 apples peeled and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 cups vegetable oil I like peanut oil for frying
  • whip cream/ caramel sauce


  • Peel and slice apples. I use a vegetable chopper.
  • In a large bowl toss the apples with lemon juice.
  • Heat oil in a large pan over high. 
  • Add cornstarch and salt to a large plastic storage bag.
  • Add apple slices to the bag, seal bag, and turnover/ shake to coat apple slices.
  • Fry apple slices until golden brown. This only takes a few minutes, so make sure you watch your apples. 
  • Remove the fried apples from the pan and place on a paper towel lined plate before adding to the cinnamon and sugar mixture. 
  • In a large bowl combine cinnamon and sugar.
  • Toss apples in the cinnamon and sugar mixture.
  • Serve with whipped cream/caramel sauce for dipping. (Or both!)
  • Enjoy!


Pro Tip: I use a vegetable chopper and make cutting the apples easier.
I like peanut oil the best for frying, but any vegetable oil will work. 
I serve with whipped cream and caramel dipping sauce.
