Apple Pie Latkes

Print Recipe
Serves: 4-6

Ingredients

  • 4 apples, peeled, cored and halved
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 Tbsp light brown sugar
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • Butter for frying
  • Vanilla Cream:
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 Tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1 vanilla bean split lengthwise, seeds scraped
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon

Instructions

1

Using a box grater, grate the apples into a medium bowl lined with paper towels. Gather tops of paper towel together, and squeeze out excess juice. Return apples to bowl.

2

In a small bowl, whisk together the lemon zest, flour, light brown sugar, cinnamon, and baking powder.

3

Add the flour mixture to the apples and toss until the apples are evenly coated. Add the beaten egg and mix until completely combined.

4

Place a skillet over medium-high heat, and melt butter to coat the pan.

5

Place a heaping tablespoon of the apple mixture into the pan, slightly flattening the latke with the back of a spoon. Cook the latkes for about a minute or two on each side, or until golden brown. Repeat the process with the remaining apple mixture.

6

In a large mixing bowl, beat the whipping cream until it forms soft peaks. Add the powdered sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. Keep beating until cream holds stiff peaks.

7

Top warm latkes with a dollop of vanilla cream and serve.
