Directions:

  1. Peel, core, and thinly slice the apples into rounds about 1/8in (4mm) thick. Toss the apples, 1/4 cup of the sugar, the liqueur, and lemon juice in a bowl. Let stand for 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk the remaining 1/2 cup sugar, milk, oil, and eggs together in a bowl. Sift in the flour, baking powder, and cinnamon and stir until smooth. Set aside for 30 minutes.
  3. Pour enough oil to come halfway up the sides of a large skillet and heat over high heat to 350°F (180°C). In batches, dip the drained apple slices in the batter. Deep-fry about 3 minutes, until golden brown. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to paper towels to drain. Serve warm, dusted with confectioner's sugar.
Tips:
  • Good with vanilla ice cream, or plain, with a cup of coffee.
