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

● 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

● 6 large apples, peeled and shredded

● 3/4 cup vegetable oil

● 2 tablespoons sugar

● 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon


● Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl, and set it aside for later. Using a large bowl, add together the salt, baking powder, flour, and sugar, then mix in the vanilla, eggs, milk, and orange juice. Now you can fold in the apples to this mixture. Heat up two tablespoons of oil in a large saucepan over medium heat, and then drop your batter by 1/4 cupfuls into the oil. Press down lightly on each pancake, and allow them to fry until golden brown on both sides of the pancake. Once they reach this state, remove them from the oil, allow them to rest on paper towels for a minute, then top with the cinnamon and sugar mixture.
