The apple tree in our garden broke last month due to high wind. We have a lot of tiny apples that we dont want to throw away. Made apple juice, apple pie, and other known apple things.
We needed something different, this is when I found a recipe for Oladi – Russian apple pancake. Normally it needs kefir milk, so Ian can eat them, I made a vegan version.
- Chopped apples
- Sugar – I used Lavender Sugar
- Plant-based milk – I used oat milk
- Plant-based yogurt – I used coconut yogurt
How to make
Like any pancakes, I never really measure properly, the way I measure is by looking at the batter, mix until the batter looks right.
- Starting with the flour in a bowl – if you have cups, you can start with 1 cup
- Mix in the lavender sugar – or just normal sugar – I put in 1 tablespoon
- Create a well
- Put the milk in slowly – mix well
- Put the yogurt in slowly – I used in 2 tablespoon mix well
If the mixture is too runny add flour bit by bit, if it is to thick add a bit of milk or yogurt.
- Warm up the pan, put a bit of vegan butter or margarine, wait until it is hot. To test you can just drip a bit of the batter, it will sizzle.
- From theblog I read oladi is cooked in small portions rather than a pan sized pancake.
- Flip sides until they are both golden brownish.
With fresh fruit, maple syrup etc. Ian ate his with maple syrup and a sprinkle of salt.
The lavender sugar makes it smells nice and flowery for me, but I know not everyone love lavender smell.
