- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- Dash of salt
- 1/4 to 1/2 cup sugar depending on taste
- 3 medium apples, peeled and coarsely grated

Mix eggs with orange juice, yogurt, or milk in a bowl. In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Add dry ingredients to the egg mixture and grated apples. Heat a thin layer of oil in a skillet. Drop about 1 heaping tablespoon of batter into the hot oil. Cook about 2 minutes on each side, or until slightly golden. Drain on paper towels, sprinkle with confectionery sugar, and serve.
