It's fall and you know what that means! I'm swimming in apples. I'm tired of making traditional apple recipes so I thought it was time for some experimenting. I had an almost empty box of pancake mix and some vegetable oil and this recipe was born! The result is a mix between apple pie, cinnamon toast crunch, and funnel cake. Not healthy at all but it sure is delicious!


  • 2 apples of your choice

  • 1 cup of instant pancake batter (I used Pearl Milling Company)

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (I used Beyond Good)

  • 1/2 cup of plant milk (I used almond milk)

  • Vegetable oil for frying

  • 1/2 cup confectioners sugar + 1 tbsp cinnamon


  • Heat at least 1 inch of vegetable oil in a pot on a stove over medium heat.

  • Peel and slice the apples.

  • Lay the apple slices on a paper towel and cover them with another paper towel to dry.

  • Meanwhile, mix the pancake batter, vanilla, and milk. Mix it until you have a smooth pancake batter (add more milk if needed).

  • Add 10 slices of apples into the pancake batter and gently mix until they're evenly coated.

  • Carefully drop one slice at a time into the hot oil.

  • Fry until they're golden brown on both sides.

  • Remove them from the oil and place them on a clean paper towel to dry.

  • When the apples are cool enough to handle (but make sure they're still warm), toss them with the confectioners sugar and cinnamon.

  • Repeat in batches with the rest of the apple slices.

  • Eat them while they're hot!


Tips and Tricks:

  • You can use granulated white sugar if you don't have any confectioners sugar.

  • Use any leftover batter to make pancakes!

  • Store any leftovers in an air-tight container for up to 2 days. Reheat on a baking sheet in the oven at 350° F for about 5 minutes or until they're warmed through.
