This is a new take on the Pinoy maruya. Try it with bananas, pears, or even persimmons (as long as they’re still crunchy). Easiest dessert ever!
Total Cooking Time 20 minutes
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
2 quarts oil for deep-frying
4 large apples, peeled and cored
1/2 cup cinnamon sugar or confectioners’ sugar for dusting
1 In a medium bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt.
2 In another bowl, beat together eggs and milk. Pour milk mixture into flour mixture and stir until smooth.
3 Heat oil to 375ºF (190ºC) in a deep fryer or heavy-bottomed deep pot or skillet.
4 Slice apples into half-inch rings. Dip apple slices in batter and fry, a few at a time, turning once, until golden. Drain on paper towels and dust with cinnamon sugar.
