Fall chilly nights are paving the way to colder weather and sweaters are coming out of our wardrobes along with please-hug-me cardigans. Time for over the heel socks, airy dresses accompanied by knitwear and long walks in fresh air. I spent last weekend exactly this way, picking juicy red apples to turn into a sweet as a welcome gift to mid-fall!
Sunday was a late-breakfast day for my beloved ones and I and what could have been better to honey apple pancakes? There is no yummier way to start off your day and the ingredients needed are always in your fall fridge so you needn’t worry about a thing! Sunday is the queen of the week and needs to be spent with good company and a warm atmosphere! I paid my respects to Queen Sunday last weekend, are you going to do the same with the one coming?
- 1 cup of all purpose flour
- 1 cup of fresh milk
- 1 tablespoon of baking powder
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon of sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon of sweet ground ginger
- A little salt
- 2 tablespoons of butter or margarine
- 3 apples cut in slices
- 2/3 of a cup of honey mixed with 1 tablespoon of honey
- 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
- Spoon the butter in a non-stick frying pan and let it melt in medium heat. Add the apples and let them cook till they are goldish and then add the honey and water mixture together with the cinnamon. Cover the pan with a lid and let them cook for 8-10 minutes. Turn it off and set aside with the lid on so as to keep them warm.
- Mix all ingredients in a deep bowl and gently stir together using a whisk. Stir just until combined but still lumpy. Cover the bowl with a towel and let the mixture rest for 5 minutes.
- Spoon 1/2 a teaspoon of butter in a frying pan over medium heat and let it melt.
- Using a soup spoon pour batter in the frying pan. Make sure that the pan is not too hot or our pancakes won't be cooked in the middle. Cook until the pancakes have a bubbly surface and slightly dry edges. Turn and cook on the other side too until they are golden brown. Repeat for the remaining pancakes.
- Pile them one over the other so as to keep them warm.
- Place the honey-apple mixture above them and serve with extra confectioner sugar and cinnamon!
