2 tsp lemon juice
2 cups pancake mix (like Krusteaz)
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup powdered sugar
Heat 1" vegetable oil over medium-high heat.
Core apples and cut into 1/4" thick rings (can use an apple peeler/corer/slicer). Sprinkle with lemon juice to prevent browning.
Combine pancake mix, water, and cinnamon. Coat apple rings in batter and fry for 2-3 minutes, until golden brown. Transfer to paper towel to drain excess oil.
Top individual rings with sifted powdered sugar.
