Pancakes are absolute ♥ for breakfast or brunch. They’re really easy to make with ready pancake mixes you can grab off the shelf, but if you’re bored of the plain old pancakes, experiment and add fruits or even chocolate into the mix!
I recently experimented with apple and cinnamon! Had the photos on facebook which sparked some interest, so I’ll try to share my kitchen adventures more! =)
I diced the apples and cut a couple wedges for garnish sake. I simmered the apples for about 10-15 in a mix of orange juice, raw sugar and cinnamon powder. I use ground cinnamon powder instead of the actual spice so it’s less overpowering.
If you want your apples crunchy, cook them less. If you like them softer, boil them until they get soft. I don’t really follow measurements to the tee when I cook, so just use your instincts! Cooking is all about trial and error!
Follow the mixing proportions on the box, but if you like thicker pancakes, use a little more flour. Once the apples are cooked, add them to the mix. You can save the reduction for later. (It makes a really yummy toffee like candy if you leave it to harden!)
That’s pretty much it, I’m sure you girls already know how to fry pancakes… You’ll end up with something this!
I like extra butter and tons of pancake syrup on mine. You can also add mashed or sliced bananas if apple doesn’t quite entice… I’m thinking blueberry pancakes too pretty soon…
If you like ice cream, the caramelized apples would make an awesome topping! Which reminds me, I should probably make more apple crumble soon. It was a winner during the Christmas festivities!
