Finest apples from the framer's garden
Apfelradeln are a dish of apple slices and dough of Palatschinken or pancake. You can adapt this simple recipe if you substitute milk with white wine and mineralwater, or "Most" (pears and/or apple-wine) and mineralwater. In place of normal white flour you can use wholegrain flour of wheat or spelt.
Together with this dish you can serve vanilla sauce or whipped cream with cinnamon. For the whipped cream with cinnamon: whipe cream, add cinnamon and a dash of sugar, mix it. If you have some Preiselbeer-jam at home (Preseiselbeere is similar to Lingonberry or the better known Cranberry, but not as sweet), you can add some of that to the whipped cream.
