Pancakes appear in almost every culture and when they appear take on some of the flavor of the lands in which they originate. Some of my favorite pancakes are latkes. Latke is the Yiddish word for pancake. They are traditionally eaten by Ashenazik Jews on Chanukkah to remember the miracle of the oil (what better than fried foods?) Sephardic and Mizrakhi Jews eat a variety of foods including Sufganiot which are a type of Jelly donut. I love pancakes, latkes, and sufganiot.
**You will need an Ebelskiver pan for this recipe.**
These light, fluffy pancakes make a delicious breakfast treat paired with lingonberry or raspberry jam. Be adventurous, sub out the blueberries and try chocolate chips, diced bananas, raspberries, etc.... My Fav? Banana/Walnut.
This recipe combines the distinctive taste and wonderful crunch of celery root with the usual starchy Russet potatoes. I loved the flavor and the texture, they taste wonderful when topped with applesauce. This recipe is gluten-free if you use a gluten-free flour mix instead of matzo meal. These freeze well, so make extra!
This is a quick homemade candy delicacy that can also be used as a tastier take on Chanukah gelt, inspired by a recipe in Martha Stewart Living. I used Ghirardelli bitterwsweet baking chocolate bars. After you make the chocolate-dipped apricots, read up on how to play dreidel and use the candies in place of coins. These morsels make a great gift for any occasion.
These luscious morsels are a pure taste of heaven. I make these quite often, and my 11 year old nephew requests them all the time, and he even knows they are healthy. Once again, a wonderful recipe from Joann Lund. I am posting this for my wonderful friends at WLB2006. Each serving (2 doughnuts) is only 1 Starch Exchange. I don't know the exact calories, but a starch serving is 80 calories. Family and friends won't believe these are healthy. Yes, it is 1 cup and 2 tablespoons of reduced fat Bisquick, computer wouldn't let me put in 1 Cup + 2 tablespoons.
If you're allergic to potatoes (or just don't like them) here is a colorful and tasty rendition for Hanukkah time or anytime throughout the year. Finish with the traditional sour cream if you like. Serve hot as either a main dish or side tonight ... stuff one into a pita for a quick lunch tomorrow.
This filled with oil Holiday can be more enjoyable with those AMAZING Sufganiot. They have less than 30% fat and they are so delicious, you won't believe they were not dipped in oil.
You can make them Doughnut stile, or in muffin pan.
Who says pancakes must only grace the breakfast table? The savory vegetable filling makes these puffed gems suitable for a satisfying supper meal. Healthy and tasty! This delicious calorie and fat reduced recipe (158 calories a serving) is from The New Dieters Cookbook.
I have been making these for over 20 years, I usually get about 15 patties but it depends on the size of the batter that you drop in the pan, these are better if fried to very brown and crispy, you can make a double recipe, fry them then freeze them on a tray then pop them into freezer bags, then just warm them in the oven to crisp up, they are very addicting and I can tell you I eat half before they even get to the table lol! If you plan on doubling the recipe then make two separate recipes in two bowls, I have doubled the recipe into one bowl and for some reason they just are not as good --- if desired you could add in a slightly beaten large egg and reduce the milk by 1/4 cup --- you will *love* these! also see my
Fritters are very popular in the Middle East. They are eaten hot or at room temperature as a vegetable side dish or a meze. It couldn’t be simpler to make, but you can dress it up with optional garnishes of black olives, tomatoes, or hard-boiled egg. The perfect use for small, sweet new zucchini. Serve alone or with a creamy garlic-lemon yogurt sauce for a perfect complement to any spicy or grilled foods that call for a cooling accompaniment.
