Hungarian Apple Fritters (AKA Palachinka or Palacsinta) - Just Like My Grandma's
Well, they're not just like my grandma's. I think, no matter how hard I try, I'll never get mine to tase how my grandma & mother's apple fritters tasted growing up. But, it's still fun to try!
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
1 tbsp sugar
- Mix ingredients above (except apple) into large mixing bowl.
- Core apples & slice across - so there's a circle in the middle.
- Mix sliced apples into batter.
- Fry in crisco.
|Mixing the apples into the batter|
|I might use olive oil next time... I'm not a fan of cooking with solid fats|

|Add a little extra milk to the batter & use the rest to make crepes... or palascinta, as my grandma called them. They're excellent with some cottage cheese & cinamon sugar sprinkled on top.|
What are some favorite foods you always loved when you were younger? Are there any family recipes you'd like to pass on to your children?
UPDATE 9-10-13: I just got a new book Cooking the Hungarian Way that includes another recipe for Palacsinta as well as a walnut filling and a chocolate sauce as well. I highly recommend this book if you're looking for some good Hungarian recipes. :)
