- At the moment there are lots of Bramley apples from the garden.
- I often make pancakes – French style crepes and fill them with cooked apples.
- I also make a slightly thicker type with chopped apples, a recipe from my mum’s sister, sort of apple fritters – racuszki -….. I posted this over 4 years ago.
- I came across this recipe for – placki, which are more like an American pancake.
- I think they would have been made originally with soured milk.
- I have been told you can use kefir instead of yoghurt.
- I weighed out the flour for this recipe but am sure if you make these often you will be able to judge the amount without getting out the scales.
- 2 to 3 cooking apples
- 130g plain flour
- Pinch of salt
- 125ml of yoghurt
- 2 eggs
- Water (up to 60ml)
- Sunflower oil for frying
- Peel the apples and grate them with a coarse grater.
- Mix in the flour, salt and yoghurt.
- Beat in the eggs.
- Add enough water to make a very thick batter.
- Fry tablespoons on a hot griddle or frying pan – you may need a little sunflower oil.
- Best eaten hot – but you can keep them in a warm oven if you want to serve them all together.
- Dust with icing sugar to serve.
- Also delicious with some hot apple sauce with some ground cinnamon mixed in.
