Apple Latkes


I made these apple latkes several days ago and they’re really good and pretty easy too! I didn’t get a photo when I made them, so I added a link from the Smitten Kitchen, a good cooking blog! I used Nigella Lawson’s recipe I found in a magazine, but both are about the same. The apple latkes diminish in taste after a couple of days, so either eat them all or split the recipe in half.

Nigella Lawson’s Apple Latkes from Food Network Magazine December 2010 issue:

  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt plus 1/3 cup more yogurt or milk (I used 1/3 cup of vanilla Greek yogurt)
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 apples to make 1 cup of grated apples
  • vegetable oil for frying
  • maple syrup, sugar, or cinnamon for serving

Beat egg with 1/3 yogurt and 1/3 milk or yogurt in one bowl.
Whisk flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, and baking soda in another bowl.
Grate the apples to make 1 cup.

Mix the yogurt mixture with the flour mixture, then fold in the apples

Fill a frying pan with 1/4″ of oil and heat over medium heat until hot
Dollop spoonfuls into the pan and fry for a minute or two until golden on the underside. Adjust temperature of skillet to not burn
Flip with two metal spatulas and cook on the other side.

Lay on paper towel to drain
Serve plain or with additional toppings
