Apples in a dressing gown

In elementary school, and quite a bit of time has passed since then, we had a very useful subject: Housekeeping. We cooked, we baked, we made simple desserts ... we briefly mastered some basics, the basics of cooking. Among those simple desserts were “apples in a dressing gown”. I'm sure your moms or grandmas prepared it for you too. For those who don’t know “dressing gown” is the German term for a men’s or women’s bathrobe. Since apples have their own "enclosure" of dough, old Zagreb cooks called this dessert "apples in a dressing gown". It won’t hurt to remember this recipe especially in this time of recession.

Preparation steps

  • Wash the apples, peel them, carefully dig out the middle so that there are no stones or stalks (you can use a special device if you have one).
  • Once you have cleaned them, cut them into rings 5-6 millimeters thick.
  • Prepare a mixture in which you will dip the apples so that they get a dressing. The mixture is actually like that for pancakes, but it has to be thicker. Add egg and vanilla sugar to the milk and mix them with a whisk.
  • Then add flour, a pinch of salt and a teaspoon of rum and grate the lemon zest.
  • Dip the apple rings into the mixture and fry on each side in deep oil until golden brown.
  • Take them out on a napkin to soak up the excess fat and sugar with powdered sugar.
