I love a lazy Saturday morning! When I first get up I like to enjoy a cup of good coffee and adjust to the day. Most days, lazy Saturday or other, I’m not ready for breakfast until I’ve had a cup of coffee or two, browsed email and checked on my Facebook peeps. I’m just not that hungry when I first get up (a concept foreign to some of my family).
Last night we slept with the door to the patio open so the house was cool crisp this morning. After proper caffination and surveying the ingredients on hand I decided it was a perfect morning to take a second stab at Apple Pancakes.
The Apple Pancake is super easy to make and require very few ingredients: pancake mix and the necessary items to make it and a few apples. If I had kids, I’m sure they would love it. Steve is a Mainer so apples and Maple Syrup are almost always on hand at the house. So here we go:
Apple Pancakes1 cup Bisquick (or whatever pancake mix you like) 1/2 cup Milk 1 Egg 2 Apples – peeled, cored and sliced (1/4 inch rings) Butter Cinnamon (optional) Honey (optional) Prepare pancake mix with first 3 ingredients. I added a bit of Penzy’s China Cinnamon and a spoonful of local honey to mine. Heat a nonstick skillet and melt a bit of butter. Dredge a few apple slices at a time in batter until well coated then transfer to the hot pan. Cook as you would a normal pancake (I find a fork is the easiest way to get the apple ring from batter to skillet). You can adjust the thickness of the apple but keep in mind the thicker the slice the less coating you will have (it can run down the sides of the apple while cooking) and less cooked the apple will be. While the first batch is cooking, drop the second batch of apple rings into the pancake batter. It helps limit browning of the apples.
This one is pretty quick and easy and a great way to add fruit to your breakfast!!
