1.  In a large bowl, whisk the egg whites until frothy. Add the flour and cornflour and beat well to form a smooth batter. 

2. Heat the deep fryer oil to 190C/375F. Dip the apple wedges into the batter, coat well and fry, a few at a time, until crisp and brown. Drain on kitchen paper and keep warm whilst you fry the remainder. Transfer all the cooked wedges to a lightly oiled serving platter in a single layer.

3. Place the remaining ingredients in a pan, bring to the boil then cook for 5-8 minutes, until golden. Remove from the heat immediately and carefully pour over apple wedges. 

4. To serve - place a large bowl containing iced water in the centre of the table. Allow each diner to pick up an apple wedge with a fork and dip it into the ice water to harden the sugar. Be sure to warn your diners to be careful as the caramel is very hot.
