This week I was in LOVE with the #joktesters recipe list!!!! So many amazing options! It was great to help get me in the Hanukkah cooking mode. I decided to tackle the Apple Cinnamon Latkes for you all! Ok, so really they sounded amazing to me and I wanted to try them for myself, so I loved the excuse.

On to my review and ideas on this recipe.

First I would not put this recipe into the super easy category. First frying is fun on its own but these turn frying latkes into a whole new experience. They are much more delicate that their potato counter parts. But in the end they are worth it. I did try it fried in the normal and recommended way. I also baked part of the batch, as I generally burn myself less when I bake instead of fry. And yes, you can call me a cheater, but spraying a little olive oil on some of my Hanukkah treats and then baking them in a convection oven makes my holiday cooking go a lot smoother. And safer ;)

When whipping up the batch of latkes {and yes, I mean wh

ipping. A hand mixer would have been smart}I need to mention on the beating of the egg yolks to a "light lemon yellow color" mine are probably darker lemon colored. I purchase farm fresh eggs and their yolks are deeper colored than normal store bought ones. They do want to burn easily when frying. These latkes are much more fragile and need more soft treatment in the frying process. It was a gentle job to flip them. But they are also a nice light sweet treat. The beaten egg whites really make them a nice contrast to the heavier foods that Hanukkah brings {come on carbs!}

The verdict on the baked ones. They came out nice and sturdy and not delicate as the fried ones. They were a LOT easier to cook. I baked them on parchment paper {great clean up!} in a 375 degree convection oven. I then served both of them with greek yogurt with freshly ground cinnamon. YUM!

Results- They are a great light treat that require a bit more work than the average. But you can bake them and they come out great there too!

Leave your comments and let me know what you think! I would love to hear how it turns out for you!
