  • 1 c. warm water or milk, 110 to 115 degrees
  • 1 tsp. granulated sugar
  • 1/2 env. (1/2 tbsp.) dry yeast

  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3 tbsp. melted butter or margarine

In small bowl, combine milk, sugar and yeast. In a large bowl, beat egg yolks until thick. Add yeast mixture, salt, butter and flour and beat until smooth. Cover with towel and let rise in warm place 1 hour or until doubled. In separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff then gently fold into yeast mixture.

In heavy skillet, heat 1/4 inch oil to 375 degrees. Using 1 tablespoon of butter for each latke, cook until golden brown on one side then turn and fry until golden brown on other side, about 2 minutes per side. Add additional oil to pan if needed. Serve with sour cream, caviar, or Caramelized Applesauce.
