My fiance and I visited my Bubbi for a late lunch this past Sunday. She prepared vegetable soup, potato latkes with homemade compote, turkey burgers and her famous banana cake for dessert. My Bubbi loves to feed us — well, she loves to feed anyone. And, for a meal for three people, she’ll cook for six (and make us eat it all!).
We really enjoyed topping the latkes with her compote, so I am sharing her recipe just in time for the Festival of Lights. Plus, it’s more fun than plain applesauce.
