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!
from Nigella Lawson
1 large egg (locally raised)
1/3 cup plain greek yogurt plus 1/3 cup low-fat milk, or 2/3 cup natural plain yogurt.
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 Tbsp superfine sugar
2 apples (1/2 lb) to make 1 cup grated apples
Vegetable oil, for frying
Maple syrup (or confectioner’s sugar and ground cinnamon) for serving
Beat the egg with the yogurt and milk and set aside.
Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon & sugar in a bowl.
Peel, quarter and core the apples, then grate them.
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.
Drain on paper towels.
Serve with maple syrup and enjoy!
