for 4 to 6 servings
3-4 medium size Kanzi® apples (peeled, cored and sliced into 5mm wedges)
¼ cup caster sugar
1 cup all-purpose plain flour
¾ cup full cream milk
1 medium egg lightly beaten
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla essence
Vegetable oil, for frying
1/3 cup caster sugar
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
3 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
½ tsp ground clove
Juice of ½ lemon
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tbsp corn flour
3 tbsp full fat cream (or coconut cream)
pinch sea salt
Pour the vegetable oil (4cm high) into a medium-size saucepan with deep sides. Place on medium-high heat and bring it up to frying point (185C).
In a mixing bowl combine the plain flour, sugar and cinnamon and stir to combine. Then add the milk, lightly beaten egg and the vanilla essence. Using a whisk, whisk until well combined and no lumps appear. Add the Kanzi® apple slices to the batter to coat.
While the oil is heating up, prepare your cinnamon sugar by simply mixing both ingredients together. Set aside on a large plate.
Test if the oil is hot enough by adding in a tiny spoon of batter, it should sizzle and little bubbles should form around the batter edges. If not, allow it to heat up further.
Pick up a Kanzi® apple slice and allow any excess batter to drip off before placing it in the oil. Use a slotted spoon to gently turn the apple slice over once the batter coating has developed a light golden brown colour and cook the other side (2-3 minutes each side). Drain off any excess oil and place on paper towel. Repeat the process in batches of 5-6 slices at a time to prevent the slices from sticking to each other.
Toss the cooked Kanzi® apple fries in the cinnamon sugar to coat all sides.
To make the caramel sauce: Combine the lemon juice and the cornflour in a small saucepan. Stir until well combined and any lumps are removed. Then stir in the remainder of the ingredients.
Allow simmering on medium heat, stirring constantly until the sauce starts to thicken. Keep stirring to prevent lumps forming. Depending on your sweet tooth, a little more maple syrup can be added.
Once the caramel sauce is thickened and the taste of the cornflour has disappeared take it off the heat. Enjoy your Kanzi® apple fries with a side of caramel sauce, served from a small pouring jug.
