Re: Apple Fritters??

Here is my moms recipe - it is great! I was actually craving these so I had her sit down and type me up the recipe lol!

Makes 16 pancakes

2 large apples Ė I prefer Jonathans, but Iíve used others
1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 large egg
3/4 cup milk
2 slices bread, any kind but rye
1/3 cup all purpose flour
dash of salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Grate the apples and put in a mixing bowl. Sprinkle apples with lemon juice and stir with a large spoon. Sprinkle apples with sugar and cinnamon, add egg and milk and stir.

In food processor or blender, crumb the slices of bread. Add crumbs to apple mixture. In a separate, small bowl, blend together the flour, salt and baking powder. Add to apple mixture and stir to mix.

Heat a griddle to medium hot and coat with 1 tablespoon butter or margarine. The griddle is ready with the foam subsides. Donít get the griddle too hot or the pancakes tend to burn. Using a 1/4 cup measure, place apple batter on the griddle and spread to a uniform thickness. Cook until the bottoms are golden and then lift with a turner coat the griddle again with a smear of butter or margarine, flip the pancake and continue to cook until the bottom is golden and the pancake is slightly puffed and steaming.

Serving suggestions:
Serve with: maple syrup; scrambled eggs topped with grated cheese (cheddar or American Cheese slices go well with the apple flavor; any sausage patties or links.
