Latkes aren’t just for lunch and dinner, we found a fun new way to start our day with latkes – Apple Latkes for breakfast!

These latkes by Nigella Lawson are so good that you are going to want them at other times of the year.  Then you can call them apple fritters or apple pancakes.  But whatever you call them, they are worth a try!

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

2 Tbsp superfine sugar

Pour the yogurt mixture into the flour bowl, tip in the apples and fold together.

Pour enough oil to come about 1/4 inch up in a skillet and heat over medium high heat.  Drop spoonfuls (round soup spoon) of the apple batter into the sizzling oil.  No need to make perfect round pancakes.

Fry for a minute or two, until the latkes are a golden brown on the undersides.  Flip them and fry for another minute o the uncooked side.
