  • Portion size 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 Northern Spy apple 1-3/4 lb (875 g)
  • 4 golden delicious apple 1-3/4 lb (875 g)
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 egg separated
  • 3/4 cups cold water
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • vegetable oil for frying
  • 1/4 cup icing sugar

Method

Peel and grate apples into bowl. Add 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the granulated sugar, lemon juice and salt ; toss to coat. Set aside.

In separate bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form; beat in remaining sugar until stiff peaks form. In large bowl, whisk egg yolks with cold water; vigorously whisk in flour and cinnamon until almost smooth and a few lumps remain. Stir in apple mixture. Fold in egg whites.

In large deep skillet, heat 1/2 inch (1 cm) oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Scoop in mixture by scant 1/4 cupfuls (50 mL), leaving about 2 inches (5 cm) between each latke. With spoon, flatten to generous 1/4-inch (5 mm) thickness. Fry until deep golden, turning once, 5 to 6 minutes.

Drain latkes on paper towel-lined rimmed baking sheets. Repeat with remaining mixture, removing any cooked bits from skillet after each batch and adding more oil as necessary. Sift icing sugar over latkes.
