Ingredient Checklist

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 300°F. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cornstarch, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg. Add the club soda and whisk until the batter is smooth and the consistency of heavy cream. If the batter gets noticeably thicker as it sits, add an ice cube and stir (do not let ice cube sit and melt.)

  • Peel and core apples and cut into 1/4-inch-thick sticks. Pat dry with paper towels before dipping in the batter.

  • Attach a deep-fry thermometer to the side of a medium saucepan. Heat 1 1/2 inches of oil to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with a double layer of paper towels.

  • Working in batches, drop about 8 sticks into the batter; stir gently to coat. Using chopsticks or a fork, lift apples from the batter, allowing the excess batter to drip back into the bowl. Carefully add to the hot oil, being sure not to crowd the pan. Fry, turning occasionally, until lightly golden on both sides, 1 to 1 1/2 minutes. Using a slotted spoon or strainer, lift the apple fries from the pan, letting the excess oil drip back into the pan. Transfer to paper towels. Keep in the oven while frying remaining batches. Return oil to 350°F between batches.

  • Dust apple fries with Powdered Cinnamon Sugar. Serve with Powdered Sugar Icing.

Powdered Cinnamon Sugar

In a small bowl, combine 2 tablespoons powdered sugar and 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon.
