In a bowl, mix flour, cornstarch, and baking powder. Add water and stir until smooth.
Peel and core apples; cut each apple into 4 wedges. For medium sized apples 3 wedges
(If you use bananas, peel and cut in 1/2 inch thick diagonal slices.)
Place fruit in batter and turn to coat evenly.
Into a deep pan pour oil to a depth of about 1 1/2 inches.
Heat oil to 350 degrees.
Dip one chunk at a time into the batter, let excess batter drip of before putting it into the frying pan (for 1-2 minutes) turning the chunks over in the pan and cooking the other side for another minute or so.
Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Set aside on a plate.
