These latkes are the perfect answer to those who feel intimidated by all the grating, squeezing, and kvetching that happens over potato versions. They're very easy to put together, and the results are terrific.
You can make them with as much or as little oil as you're comfortable with; they take a full 3 minutes to cook on the first side before being flipped.

1/4 cup soft butter
1/2 cup sugar
sour cream for garnish (optional)

Tips from our bakers:
You can mix the batter for the latkes a day or two in advance, if you're looking to get ahead. The roasted apples can also be done ahead of time and reheated for serving.
The milk solids in the batter will burn if cooked over high heat; you may wish to drain and wipe out your frying pan once or twice during cooking and replace with fresh oil to avoid burnt "freckles" on the latkes.
