This morning I woke up and felt like having something interesting for breakfast.
And just like that, I thought of apple pancakes, which I had never had before. After a quick Google search, I realized that the from-scratch recipes weren’t quite going to work. Reasons? Limited time and a lack of domestic fortitude.
So I took matters into my own hands and within 20 minutes, my tummy was happy.
So happy, I thought I would share the recipe with you. Note, I am neither a chef nor recipe writer, so measurements and instructions are very grandma-ish (i.e. a dash of this, a smidgen of that). So work with me, let your instincts guide you and enjoy the ride!
This recipe made about 8 pancakes.
1 cup of your favorite just-add-water pancake mix (mine is Bisquick or Hungry Jack Buttermilk)
1/2 cup of water
half of a small apple, finely diced
1/4 Cinnamon stick, grated
2 dashes of ground nutmeg
2 drops of vanilla extract
Maple or pancake syrup
Whisk cinnamon, nutmeg and pancake mix in a bowl.
Stir in water and vanilla extract.
Throw in apples and mix well.
Heat skillet lightly covered in cooking spray or griddle to medium heat.
Pour about 1/8 cup of the batter at a time, turning when bubbles appear.
Cook until golden ground.
Top with your favorite syrup warmed.
