It’s apple season! I picked up a bunch of red, gold and green apples the other day, and the same day, my husband stopped and got a few more bags. So we have an over-abundance of apples at my house. It was fun slicing the different varieties up and letting the kids taste the difference. We love them dipped in caramel, and they’ve been taking lots of apples in their lunches. I’m also planning to make some apple butter in the slow cooker.
We decided to have breakfast for dinner last night, and I wanted to use up some of our apples. I found a recipe for apple pancakes, but the batter turned out to be much more like a crepe than a pancake, and they weren’t exactly what I wanted. Still, I love the idea of apple pancakes, so I wanted to include it in the blog anyway.
Wash, core, and thinly slice your apples, then dip in your favorite pancake batter. Melt butter in a skillet. Using a fork, lift apple rings out of the batter and place into the hot skillet. Flip when browned on the bottom.
Sometimes things don’t go exactly as planned in the kitchen, but that’s OK. Even with the less-than-stellar batter recipe I tried, the apples were pretty good, and the kids enjoyed them. We also cooked up some sausage patties, and enjoyed making little sandwiches with a patty in between two apple pancakes. Yum!
