  • Heat about 1/4 inch olive oil in a frying pan to medium heat.
  • Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl. This will be the consistency of thick pancake batter.
  • Drop batter into hot oil and fry until golden brown. I prefer smaller pancakes and use about 1/4 cup batter per pancake.
  • Remove from oil and place on paper towels to remove excess oil.
  • Serve warm with sour cream and/or apple sauce.
