polish apple pancakes

1 cup flour
1 tablespoon superfine sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon canola oil, plus some extra for frying
5 medium apples, peeled and thinly sliced
powdered sugar

in a bowl, combine flour, sugar if desired and salt. in another bowl, lightly beat egg; add milk and oil.

add to dry ingredients and stir until smooth. fold in apples.

in a heated pan with several tablespoons of oil, pour batter by 1/2 cupfuls and spread to form a 5-inch circle. turn when bubbles form. cook on the second side until golden brown and apples are tender. sprinkle with powdered sugar and eat them just like that (or with maple syrup, if you must).

makes 12-14 pancakes.
