The cute name for this delicious dessert vividly describes what it looks and how it’s prepared. This sweet dish, particularly popular in Romania, Croatia, and Germany, is made by “dressing” big slices of apple in batter and frying them. Apples in pyjamas is one of those simple deserts that doesn’t require expensive ingredients. It is quick and easy to prepare and is a favorite with all generations. 

How to Make Apples in Pyjamas:

Makes 8 servings

  1. First peel and core the apples, then cut them into slices, which should be a couple of centimeters thick. 
  2. For the batter, first mix the eggs with the sugar, salt, and vanilla sugar.
  3. Gradually add the milk and flour to the mixture. Finally, add the lemon zest and rum or fruit brandy for aroma. This will also prevent the batter from absorbing too much oil. It now looks like pancake batter, but it should be thicker in order to stick to the apple slices while frying.
  4. Apples in pyjamas were traditionally fried in pork fat, but nowadays sunflower oil is used. Heat a large amount of oil in a pan to 375°F (190°C), then fry the apples on both sides until they turn golden brown.
  5. After frying, place the apples on paper towel to absorb any excess oil, and sprinkle over some powdered sugar. If you prefer a more intense flavor and aroma, sprinkle them with cinnamon. Apples in pyjamas are served warm, their sweet scent wafting deliciously through the air.
  6. They can be served for every meal, for breakfast or brunch or for dessert after lunch or dinner.
