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.
This Jello Gem Cream Roll recipe was shared by my sister-in-law, but I slightly changed the filling instructions. She used one flavor of jello which was not fully set yet, to sweeten and add color to her whipped cream filling. I chose to use 3 different jello flavors, let each fully set, then cut them up into small “gems” and gently fold them into the whipped cream to create the mosaic effect.
Vera is a friend of mine who is an excellent cook and a wonderful baker. I love all her recipes, and she shares them with anyone who is interested in trying them out.
Today I will share her recipe for Blueberry Muffins which are simple to make, require a few basic ingredients, and absolutely melt in your mouth. She suggests mixing anything you wish into the batter (fruits, berries, nuts, chocolate chips….), and tweaking the recipe to your preference.
