I don’t know what it is about Sunday mornings and pancakes for brunch. For me it’s like peanut butter and jelly, or basil and tomatoes. It just goes together, man.
This was a really easy breakfast that I wanted to show you guys. Apple cinnamon pancakes. I used pre-made pancake mix, like Bisquick. So buy your favorite kind. Here’s a quick way to take ordinary pancakes and turn it into something more special.
What you’ll need for Apple Cinnamon Pancakes:
(Feeds 2, double recipe to feed more)
1 green apple, peeled
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla
If you’re using Bisquick: Mix 1 cup pancake mix, 1/2 cup milk and 1 egg. Whisk together in a bowl then add the cinnamon and vanilla.
To get the apple rings, peel 1 green apple and then using a spoon, scoop out the core. Then slice the apple into thin rings.
In a heated skillet melt some butter. Add pancake mix by 1/4 cup amounts at a time. Place an apple ring in the center of the pancake batter (shown above). Cook for a few minutes on each side until the pancakes are golden brown. Top with whatever you like. I like butter and syrup.
I really really really liked these pancakes. They were sweet and tart and delicious. The fiance wasn’t a fan but I think I scarred him with the last breakfast I made. I made blueberry waffles and he got a little TOO many blueberries in his. Lately when I say I’m going to make us breakfast he asks “there’s no blueberries in it is there?” He’s not a huge fruit-in-the-breakfast-batter fan.
No matter. More for me.
