Apple pancake rings

by | Oct 28, 2015 | Desserts

Apple has been accompanying the history of humanity, there are only a few fruits that have such a long past as the apple. Apple’s story dates back to the Stone Age, European folks already dealt with apple-growing at that time. The Greeks and Romans continued this tradition and during their conquests the fruit got through to remote areas, too. Apple is now cultivated worldwide, the annual quantity of the crop is about 60-80 million tons.

Apple is one of the most important vitamin and mineral resources during the autumn-winter season, many beneficial health effects result from eating it. It’s best to eat it raw, but apple is often used as an ingredient of desserts. Though cooking reduces its mineral and vitamin content, but it doesn’t diminish apple’s enjoyment value. A good example for this is apple pancake rings.

I like apple pancake rings much better than plain pancakes. The apple’s sourish taste and the sweet pancake coat is a heavenly combination. You have to make a much thicker batter than usual to be able to coat the apple slices, but the batter has to drip off a bit. These pancakes are best eaten right away. You can keep them warm in the oven but they are best right off of the pan.

Hungarian cottage cheese

This is what Hungarian túró looks like

You often ask me what kind of cottage cheese (or curd cheese or farmer's cheese - call it what you want) I use in the recipes. In Hungary the store-bought cottage cheese is dry and crumbly as you can see in the picture. So if a recipe calls for túró, I mean this type. If you can't obtain túró, you can try to make your own from whole milk. Click on the link below.

Metric system vs cup

In Hungary metric units are in use, all the recipes on this website are based on this system, so a kitchen scale is necessary. Since I’m not familiar with cup as a measurement unit, I convert grams to cups by using an online converter. The values in brackets, therefore, are only approximate volumes, so, please, double-check them before you start cooking.
