Sesame & Caramel Envy™ Apple Bites


Makes 16pieces


  • 2 EnvyTM apples
  • About 300mls plain oil for frying
  • 40gms plain flour
  • 2 tablespoons cornflour
  • ¼ teaspoon each five spice & cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 tablespoon black sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon white sesame seeds
  • Iced water


  1. In a medium bowl lightly whisk the egg
  2. Add the flour, cornflour and spices
  3. Whisk all together to make a sticky thick batter and set aside for 30 minutes
  4. Heat the oil in a deep-frying pan or wok
  5. Peel, core and cut the EnvyTM apples into even sized wedges about 8 per apple
  6. Dip the apple wedges into the batter and toss to coat each wedge (the batter will loosen with the apple juices)
  7. Heat the oil and fry 4-5 apples slices at a time for 1-2 minutes until golden, then transfer to a lined baking tray
  8. In another frying pan heat the sugar and oil over a medium heat until the sugar begins to caramelise
  9. Add the sesame seeds when the caramel is light golden and swirl around to mix
  10. When the caramel is a rich golden brown add the apples a few at a time and mix all around to coat each in the sesame caramel mixture
  11. Transfer to a bowl of iced water and then remove with a slotted spoon onto a lined tray to harden
