Tuesdays are busy for us because the kids have swimming lessons at 6:00pm. Neil doesn’t usually get home until about 5:20 or so, and we need to leave by about 5:40 to get to swimming on time. So we need a fast, yummy supper.
Last week we had Apple Puff Pancakes.
You really need to make these. They’re soooo good. Everyone loves them so much, I just started doubling the recipe. Neil says it’s one of his favorite things to eat.
Want to give them a try? Here’s what you need:
Apple Puff Pancakes
1/4 c. butter
4 apples, peeled and sliced
1/2 tsp cinnamon
6 tbsp brown sugar
1 c. milk
1 c. flour
1/2 c. sugar
Got everything? Here’s what you do:
Melt your butter in a pan/pot/whatever. Throw all your sliced apples in there and mix in the cinnamon and brown sugar.
Cook them until the apples are softened- but not so mushy they’re falling apart.
Once they’re ready, pour everything in a big pan, 8×10 or something like that.
Then mix up everything else. It’s okay if there are few little lumps, no big deal. Because I doubled it I had to use a whole dozen eggs. (That’s why I need chickens, Neil. To feed you and your sons.)
Since Neil won’t let me have chickens, I’ve started buying eggs at Costco instead. So far 2 1/2 dozen lasted us a week, so I think that was a good move. Anyway, after you’ve got it all mixed up, pour it over your apple stuff.
Because I doubled it, I had two of these:
Put your pan in your oven (that is preheated to 425F) for about 25 minutes. When you take it out, you’ll impress everyone with the lovely apple puff pancake you made.
If you want to impress them even more, sprinkle some icing sugar all over the top. Cut it up and serve it with syrup if you want. Your kids will gobble it up. Guaranteed.
These do make an excellent “breakfast for supper” but they sure make a delicious Sunday brunch too! Try them, you won’t be sorry!
