Apple, Carrot and Raisin Blinis

I’m not fully sure if these are blinis, by American standards, or fritters, but either way they’re perfect for breakfast or brunch.

(Yield: about 10)


1 large carrot, shredded

1 apple (any kind but not tart), shredded

2 tbsp white raisins

1 egg, beaten

¼ c buttermilk

2 tbsp sour cream

1 tbsp melted butter

½ tsp salt

1 tsp sugar

1/3 tsp baking soda

3 heaping tbsp all-purpose flour

3 tbsp frying oil

Shred the carrot and apple and squeeze out all juice (drink it if you want). Place the carrot and apple into a bowl and combine with raisins, egg, buttermilk, sour cream and butter. Then add the dry ingredients, being careful not to overmix. The mixture should not be too sticky to the touch but not pasty either. Heat the oil on medium heat on a griddle. Working with one tbsp of dough at a time, form it into a round patty and place in oil. Fry 4-5 min on each side until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve hot or at room temperature with lots of sour cream on top.
