These are a little like thin, chewy pancakes
, very good with the honey
mix suggested, and is one of the few dishes made with wine
that actually does not taste like it. It is an easy-but-slightly-messy recipe that is a nice spring equivalent to pancakes.
Beat the wine and egg in a bowl. In a small bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, salt, and sugar. Add flour to the mixture in other bowl. Mix until well-blended. Let stand for 30 minutes. Combine the honey and nutmeg in a small bowl for dipping.
Heat ½ inch of oil in a skillet until hot, but not smoking. Drop batter into oil 1 tablespoon at a time; fry until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Dip in honey/nutmeg mix.
Yield: 6 cakes
