Ingredients for Apple Latkes

  • 1 large egg
  • 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 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons superfine sugar
  • 2 apples (1/2 pound), to make
  • 1 cup grated apples
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • Maple syrup (or confectioners’ sugar and ground cinnamon), for serving

Directions for Apple Latkes

  1. Beat the egg with the yogurt and milk (or just the yogurt, if you’re using the plain normal variety) and set aside. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and sugar in a bowl. Peel, quarter and core the apples, then grate them; I use a food processor, but a coarse Microplane or other grater would work easily, I’d imagine.
  2. Pour the yogurt mixture into the flour bowl, tip in the grated apples and fold it together.
  3. Pour enough oil to come about 1/4 inch up in a skillet and put on the stove to heat. Dollop spoonfuls — I use a round soup spoon — of the apple batter into the sizzling oil; a rubber spatula (the one you used to fold the batter together) will help you scrape the batter off the spoon and press down on the little latkes in the pan. Don’t worry about making perfect round pancakes; I like these a bit raggedy and skew-whiff. Fry for a minute or two, until the latkes are a golden brown on the undersides; you can see from the top as they start firming up underneath. Flip them with 2 metal spatulas and fry for another minute on the uncooked side.
  4. Remove to a tray lined with paper towels to blot the excess oil and continue cooking until you’ve used up all the batter. Top with maple syrup.

  • Fruit – In botany, a fruit is the seed-bearing structure in flowering plants that is formed from the ovary after flowering.Fruits are the means by which flowering plants (also known as angiosperms) disseminate their seeds. Edible fruits in particular have long propagated using the movements of humans and animals in a symbiotic relationship that is the means for seed dispersal for the one group and nutrition for the other; in fact, humans and many animals have become dependent on fruits as a source of food. Consequently, fruits account for a substantial fraction of the world’s agricultural output, and some (such as the apple and the pomegranate) have acquired extensive cultural and symbolic meanings.In common language usage, “fruit” normally means the fleshy seed-associated structures (or produce) of plants that typically are sweet or sour and edible in the raw state, such as apples, bananas, grapes, lemons, oranges, and strawberries. In botanical usage, the term “fruit” also includes many structures that are not commonly called “fruits”, such as nuts, bean pods, corn kernels, tomatoes, and wheat grains.
