  • Cooking oil, for deep frying
  • 500 ml (2 cups) self-raising flour
  • 15 ml (1 tablespoon) sugar
  • 2.5 ml (½ teaspoon) salt

Heat enough cooking oil in a deep-fryer or pot. In a large mixing bowl, mix the flour, sugar and salt. Add the water, milk, eggs, vanilla essence and oil to the dry ingredients.
Mix well, then add in the apples. Drop spoonfuls of the batter, about 15 ml, into the hot oil. Deep-fry until golden brown. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel.
