Baked apple rings Ingredients

Directions for Baked Apple Rings

  1. Peel apples, core and cut in approx. one-centimetre thick rings. Immediately brush with lemon juice so they don’t turn brown.
  2. Mix flour, milk, eggs and a pinch of salt and leave the mixture to rest for 30 minutes.
  3. Coat the apple slices in sugar (optional) and then coat in the batter.
  4. Heat plenty of oil in a pan so that the apple slices are able to float in this. Fry the apple rings on both sides until they are golden yellow and sprinkle with icing sugar and cinnamon. Serve warm.
  5. Beat the wine, sugar and egg yolk in a bowl over warm water until frothy. Serve with the apple and sprinkle with sugar.

Oliebollen are fist-sized boiling pastries made from curd cheese dough, which are baked floating in fat and sprinkled with sugar.
Their name might shock: Gebackene Mäuse” is German for Fried Dough – yet they are as harmless as they are delicious and polished off as quickly as they are made!
