The taste straight from my childhood "racuchy z jabłkiem" (apple fritters). My dad would made them quite often as a quick lunch alternative or an afternoon snack. Red sweet, juicy kind of apples are the best for this, as they soften a little bit during frying, but still keep their shape. Super easy and quick to make, and as it turned out - even easier to "veganise" than I thought! Just swap the milk for plant based alternative and voila!
Racuchy are traditional Polish dish, it's similar to the crêpe and American style pancakes. Racuchy are traditionally made using yeast, but if you want the quick version, baking powder or baking soda will be a perfect substitute too. Traditional recipe calls for milk and eggs - all of which can be easily swapped for a plant based alternatives. So, either as an afternoon snack, or sweet breakfast/brunch this is a very nice option, especially if you have kids at home.
How to make it...
- 5 apples, peeled, cored and sliced into 1 cm thick rings
- 1 1/2 cup plain flour
- 1 1/2 cup plant milk of your choice
- 1 Tbsp caster sugar
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
- 1 tsp bread soda
- In a big bowl, whisk all the better ingredients until there are no lumps left.
- On a medium heat, warm up pan filled with around 1 cm (half an inch) of vegetable oil. It's not a deep fried dish, but you need a bit of oil to make sure they'll fry properly on all sides.
- Dip apple slices, one by one in the batter and fry on medium hot pan, on both sides until golden (around 1,5-2 minutes on each side), take care when flipping them to the other side.
- Proceed with all the slices until you have no more apple left.
- Serve immediately, still warm, with fruit compote, maple syrup, icing sugar, chocolate sauce or anything you like!
