  1. Recipe Instructions Whisk together flour, buttermilk, granulated sugar, butter, egg yolk, cinnamon, salt and cayenne in small bowl. (Can be made 1 day ahead and refrigerated.) When ready to use, beat egg white until it holds peaks but is not dry. Fold into batter. Heat 1 inch oil in deep fryer or heavy pot until it reaches 375 degrees. Working with a few apple slices at a time, use tongs to dip slices into batter, shaking off excess. Immediately drop into hot oil and fry until apple is tender and batter is brown and puffed, turning once, about 2 to 4 minutes. Use slotted spoon to transfer in single layer to paper towel-lined baking sheet; keep warm in 250 degree oven until all are fried. Serve hot with powdered sugar or syrup.
