I’m a professional food stylist and currently prepping my own series of cookbooks and a cooking show. In my food catering business, Mishka La Mushka, I catered private and corporate functions and events big and small, designed food in hat boxes for the Spring Racing Carnival and created too many themed kids birthday parties to mention. But now I love food styling and sharing my fun food ideas with mums wanting to create restaurant-quality meals at home, for kids and family. So let’s get cooking!

I’m not going to lie and say these are the healthiest things on the planet, but I’ve sincerely tried to make these scrumptious apple doughnuts as healthy as possible.

Don’t be put off by deep frying, you don’t need tons of oil for these and you certainly don’t need a deep fryer.

You do need, however, an apple corer and candy thermometer for this recipe.

You'll Need

  • 3-4 granny smith apples (you can use a sweeter variety such as pink lady, if your prefer)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 heaped tbs brown sugar
  • 1 tsp dutch cinnamon
  • 1 cup greek yoghurt
  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • grapeseed oil for frying
  • icing sugar for dusting


Peel and remove the centre of the apple with an apple corer. Cut the apple into 1cm thick rings and set aside.


Pour 2 inches of grapeseed oil into a medium sized heavy based saucepan and using your candy thermometer, heat the oil on a medium heat to 180/190C.


Whisk together the egg, milk, brown sugar, cinnamon and yoghurt in a medium sized bowl.
Add the flour and whisk until smooth. You will have a thick batter.


When the oil has come to temperature, dip the apple slices in the batter to coat and gently place in the hot oil. Cook 2 at a time until golden brown (approximately 2 minutes on each side).


Drain on paper towel, dust with icing sugar and serve.
