INGREDIENTS

  • 2/3 cup corn meal
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar, granulated
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp. melted butter
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 20 apple slices, ring shape
  • 5-1/4 oz. Nutella®
  • * powdered sugar, optional

Method:

Heat two inches of vegetable oil in a heavy pot over medium to medium-low heat until a deep-fry thermometer inserted in the oil registers 340°F. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, beat the egg with a fork, then add the milk, melted butter and vanilla. Gently fold the dry and wet ingredients together until just combined (do not over-mix). Fold in the apples. Saute until golden brown, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove and drain on paper towels. Plate 2 apple slices and top each with 1/4 oz. of Nutella®. Add powdered sugar if desired and serve warm.
