Ingredients

1 large
egg
1/3 c
greek yogurt, plain
1/3 c
low-fat milk
1 c
all purpose flour
1/2 tsp
baking powder
1/4 tsp
baking soda
1/2 tsp
ground cinnamon
2 Tbsp
super fine sugar
2
apples, (1/2 pound) to make 1 cup grated apples
vegetable oil, for frying
maple syrup (or confectioner's sugar and ground cinnamon) for serving

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Beat the egg with the yogurt and milk and set aside. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and sugar into a bowl. Peel and core the apples, then grate them; I use a food processor, but a coarse grated would work easily, I'd imagine.
2
Pour the yogurt mixture into the flour bowl, tip in the grated apples and fold it together.
3
Pour enough oil to come about 1/4 inch up a skillet and put on the stove to heat. Dollop spoonfuls of the apple batter into the sizzling oil; a rubber spatula will help scrap the batter off the spoon and press down on the latkes in the pan. Don't worry about making perfect round pancakes; fry for a minutes or two, until the latkes are a golden brown on the underside; you can see from the top as they start firming underneath. Flip them with 2 metal spatulas and fry for another minute on the uncooked side.
4
Remove to a tray lined with paper towels to blot the excess oil and continue cooking until you've used up all the batter. Top with maple syrup.
