Step 1

Beat the egg with the yogurt and milk (or just the yogurt, if you’re using the plain normal variety) and set aside. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and sugar in a bowl. Peel, quarter and core the apples, then grate them; a food processor works well for this, but a coarse grater would work as well.

Pour the yogurt mixture into the flour bowl, add in the grated apples and fold it together.

Pour enough oil to come to about ¼-inch up in a skillet and put on the stove to heat. Dollop spoonfuls of the apple batter into the sizzling oil; a rubber spatula will help you scrape the batter off the spoon and press down on the latkes in the pan. Fry for 1 or 2 minutes, until the latkes are golden brown on the undersides; you can see from the top as they start firming up underneath. Flip them with 2 metal spatulas and fry for another minute on the cooked side.

Remove to a tray lined with paper towels to blot the excess oil and continue cooking until you’ve used up all the batter. Top with maple syrup.
