*Ingredients :


+For pancakes:


°2 tablespoons granulated sugar


°2 large eggs


°1 cup all-purpose flour


°2 tsp. Baking powder


°½ tsp. cinnamon


°½ tsp. salt


°Half a cup of milk


°2 tsp. Fresh lemon juice


°2-3 cups Granny Smith or Grainstein apples, peeled, seeded, and chopped (firm pie apples!)


Vegetable oil for deep frying (about 4-5 cups - enough to put in the middle of the sides of a frying pan or skillet)


+For glazing:


°1¼ cups powdered sugar


°¼ tsp. vanilla


°3-4 teaspoons water warm (thin enough to making glaze "paintable")



* Follow these steps:



Using a stand mixer, beat sugar and eggs in a large mixing bowl (or bowl in a stand mixer) for 1-2 minutes.


Flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and milk should be added to this. Combine these ingredients thoroughly.


In a separate bowl, combine the apple and lemon juice. Add the apple mixture to the mixture with a spoon and stir well until combined.


Preheat the vegetable oil to 375°F (use a deep frying thermometer or use an electric fryer with temperature control). It is critical to ensure that the temperature is hot enough to fry the pancakes properly.


Once the oil reaches 375 degrees, carefully and gently dab a few tablespoons of the pancake mixture (as much as you can!) into the hot oil.


When the pancakes have reached a true golden brown color, carefully flip them to the other side (I used two spoons to flip them carefully) and continue to cook.

When the pancakes are brown on both sides (you may need to turn them over again to ensure that both sides are brown), they are done.

Remove patties, one at a time, with a slotted spoon to a plate lined with paper towels (several thicknesses) to drain and cool.

To make a shiny glaze for the tops of the pancakes, whisk together the powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and water in a small bowl until smooth.

Brush this glaze over the entire surface of the foam with a pastry brush. Allow the glaze to harden slightly before flipping it over and "greasing" the glaze on the bottom. Place the glazed pancakes on a wire rack and set them aside to cool.

Allow the glaze to harden before serving.


Have fun!
