Yummy… last Sunday I finally prepared polish apple pancakes with addition of yeast. They make them thicker and give them different structure from normal pancakes. My mom used to make them when I was small, especially during fasting time. I like to serve them with an icing sugar but you can also have them with jam, syrup or honey. My recipe comes from here with little modifications. Enjoy!

Ingredients for as many as on the picture:

250 g flour

25 g fresh yeast

pinch of salt

1 tbsp sugar

¾ cup lukewarm milk

1 small egg

3 medium sized apples, grated or cut into small cubes

1 tbsp vanilla sugar

Mix flour with salt; make a crater in the middle. Divide your yeast into pieces and place them in the crater, sprinkle sugar on top of them and pour half cup of the milk onto it. Leave it for 10-15 minutes.

Add the rest of the ingredients (minus apples) and mix. Batter should not be too thick or too thin. If that’s the case, add a spoon of milk or a spoon of flour, respectively.

Set aside for 1-1.5 hours to double the size. Add the apples and mix it well.

Fry on a medium heat till golden.

Serve with icing sugar, ice cream, melted chocolate or syrup.
