    Dreamer in Ontario's Note:

    Tiganites pronounced tee-ghah-NEE-tess. This recipe intrigued me and I hope to try it when I'm no longer on a diet :). These light, crispy medallion-sized treats are a delight served with honey, Greek grape syrup called petimezi (Zaar doesn't recognize this as an ingredient), syrup or preserves. They can be eaten as a sweet snack, with breakfast, or as a brunch dish. They are favorites during The Great Lent as they contain no eggs or dairy products. The recipe can be vegan depending on your choice of topping. Recipe from

    1. 1
      Using an electric mixer, beat the Sprite, salt, water, raki or brandy, and lemon juice on low speed.
    2. 2
      Sift or whisk together the baking powder and flour then add slowly to the bowl, beating on high.
    3. 3
      When all the flour has been added, continue to beat on high speed for 2 to 3 minutes until smooth.
    4. 4
      Preheat 1/4 to 1/3 inch of olive oil in a heavy-bottomed frying pan or skillet over medium-high heat.
    5. 5
      When hot, fry the pancakes using a rounded tablespoon of batter for each. Fry 2 to 3 minutes on each side until lightly golden, and drain well on absorbent paper towels. (Add more oil between batches if the level in the pan drops too low.
    6. 6
      Serve with your choice of honey, petimezi, syrup, preserves, or other topping of your choice.).
