  • Salted Cinnamon Sugar:
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Pour enough oil in a medium saucepan to reach a depth of 2 inches. Heat the oil over medium heat until a deep-fry thermometer registers 375 degrees F.

  • In a medium mixing bowl whisk the egg white until frothy. Stir in the beer. Add the flour and salt. Mix until the batter is smooth. Set aside.
