Apples in a Robe / Alma pongyolában


2 eggs, separated
2 tsp sugar
1 ½ cups milk
¼ cup white wine
pinch of salt
1 2/3 cups flour
1 ¼ lbs tart apples
about 2 cups of oil for deep-frying
ground cinnamon and powdered sugar

Beat the eggs yolks and sugar until frothy. Add the milk, wine and a pinch of salt. Add the flour little by little, beating constantly, until the mixture has a thick liquid consistency.

Beat the egg whites until stiff, and fold carefully into the batter mixture.  Peel and core the apples and cut into ¼-½ inch thick rings.

Heat a generous quantity of oil until bubbling. Dip the apple rings in the batter, then drain off the excess and fry in the oil until golden.

Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar and serve hot.
