With the holidays around the corner, many of us will have overnight guests and will have to provide breakfast and snacks.
Last week I made Apple latkes on our terrace at The Greenporter Hotel. The apple latkes are like potato pancakes but instead of grated potato, I use grated apple. The flour and eggs are just a binder for the apple so that the apple flavor really comes through. I served these latkes with a hot apple butter last week for our Taste North Fork event and here is the recipe that you can use on a regular pancakes, french toast or even ice cream for dessert.
Recipe and ingredients
2 cups of fresh grated or cubed apples (I just used the leftover grated apple from Woodside Orchards from the apple latkes)
1 cup of pure maple syrup
1 stick of salted butter
Add Maple syrup to a saucepan, add the grated apple and heat. Add stick of butter and melt. Pour into a thermos to serve hot. This also makes a great holiday gift when poured into mason jars for canning and tied with ribbons.
Serve this with hot apple cider, hard Apple Cider or Apple Wine from Wolffer Estate Vineyards. Perfect for Chanukah, Thanksgiving or Christmas brunch.
