Fried Apples Sign In/Join

I thought I'd try making fried apples for the church fall festival. Disaster! I used Cortland apples and Bisquick with some sugar and cinnamon in it and enough milk to make it into dipping batter. But when fried, it just sloughed off the apple pieces and looked burnt. I reduced the oil temp and tried again and the coating still slid off and was doughy. Any suggestions?

How about making them w/o the batter? This is the recipe I use and my gosh, I love them. You could keep them warm in a crockpot. I've even used them as a topping for cheesecake recently. I always taste before the times up because I like mine with a little bite to them and not mushy.
•3 large Granny Smith apples, cored, peeled and cut into wedges
•1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or bacon drippings, or a combination
•1/4 cup light brown sugar, well packed
•1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
•1/4 teaspoon allspice
•1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

Instructions:
In a skillet over medium heat, melt the butter or bacon drippings with the brown sugar. Add the apples and cook over medium until apples begin to release juices. Reduce to medium low and simmer for about 15 minutes or until apples are tender. Sprinkle spices on top and toss until well blended.

I agree, no batter. For years, I've been sauteeing them in butter with sugar and cinnamon for my Davidayre Pancake (aka German Pancake). Delicious!

While I have never made deep fried apple fritters (I don't deep fry anything) such as you describe I wonder if the 'secret' to holding the batter together is to dredge the apples in flour before adding them to the batter. Did you do that? That's the usual way when cooking anything with fruit in it to keep it from settling.

I was just thinking if you wanted a 'batter' on them...how about baking apples in a dough crust?
