I created this recipe based on my childhood memory of Apple Pancakes prepared by my Godmother which she called “Ratsushki”.
These pan-fried Apple Fritters (pancakes) are very easy to make, as they are made with all-purpose flour mixed with finely diced apples (or any fresh fruit), which makes them a little bit denser than the ones made out of a pancake mix, but they absorb less syrup at serving time.
One of my favorite recipes from my mom, is a recipe for crepes. She usually filled them with creamed, and sweetened, farmer’s cheese. I like my crepes filled with fresh fruits, or fruit preserves ( I use Smucker’s Sugar Free Fruit Preserves), served with fruit syrup (also by Smucker’s), and whipped cream. This dish may be served as a light main course, or as a dessert. Makes about 8 crepes.
Growing your own zucchini in your veggie garden can be a hit or miss game, so when it rains it pours. You either have no zucchini at all, or all of them start producing at once filling your fridge with an abundance of them and driving you crazy to use them up in various recipes.
I have been making Banana Bread in the past, but this time I wanted to make it into muffin cakes, so they are not as large as muffins, and no icing on top as for cupcakes…:-) They turned out wonderfully!
