Back in 2013 we visited LEGOLAND Florida twice, yes twice and one of the highlights for me was the Granny Smith apple fries, which are delicious cinnamon apple fries.
I have tried to bake these fries and also attempted to cook them in the air fryer, but trust me you need to actually fry these in vegetable oil to get the crisp coating. The secret is to cook a few at a time in a really hot oil, that way the outside crisps and prevents the inside absorbing oil.
How to make cinnamon apple fries
Cinnamon Apple Fries
- 4 Granny Smith Apples
- ½ cup cornflour cornstarch ion the US
- ½ cup Canderel granules
- ⅛ cup cinnamon
- vegtable oil
Heat about 1 inch of oil in a frying pan over a high heat.
Core and peel apples.
Slice apples into pieces about the shape and size of chips.
Toss the apple pieces in the corn floor until well coated.
In a separate bowl, combine cinnamon and Canderel granules, then set aside.
In small batches, fry the apples for 2-3 minutes until very lightly golden.
Remove from oil with a slotted spoon and drain apple fries on paper towels.
Sprinkle liberally with cinnamon Canderel granules mixture .
Keep frying in small batches until all the apples are cooked.
The cinnamon apple fries are sweet and tart at the same time and are perfect served with whipped cream as a delicious treat.
These are served with vanilla whipped cream in LEGOLAND, which is simple to replicate. We used whipping cream, vanilla extract and icing sugar. The sweetness of the cream pairs so well with the cinnamon apple fries.
We are currently working with Canderel on their #SweetSmart campaign and I figure that using Canderel granules at only 2 calories per teaspoon equals out the fact that I am frying the apples. We are great believers in moderation here in The Mad House. I warn you these cinnamon apple fries are morish. They are a perfect birthday treat and the MiniMads love them.
If you are looking to reduce your sugar intake then Canderel is ace, they are encouraging people to be #sweetsmart and try cutting their sugar intake for a week. They have some great tips on the Canderel Facebook page. I have never used sweeteners in our baking until now and I really couldn’t taste any difference.
We even used it as a learning opportunity. I set the boys a math challenge to convert the weight from traditional sugar to Canderel, which is 20 times lighter. We had a really interesting conversation about density, weight and volume.
