Vanilla and cinnamon apple latkes

Latkes are a special kind of pancake that are usually fried to a crispy state, and are often made from potatoes. The present recipe does not use potatoes, but instead substitutes apples, which places it squarely in the category of a dessert. It's sweeter than the potato version of latkes, since it includes vanilla extract, orange juice, cinnamon, and apples.


● 2 cups orange juice

● 1 cup 2% milk

● 4 cups all-purpose flour

● 2/3 cup sugar

● 2 teaspoons baking powder

● 1/2 teaspoon salt

● 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
