Breakfast for supper.

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
6 eggs

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!

    My friend has 9 chickens and they are very productive. Well, once they sorted out the pecking order and stopped pulling out each others tail feathers. Now they lay lots of eggs.

    My other friend grew up on a farm and her Grampa took her to an auction to buy a goat. He got her to bid on it, because who’s going to bid against a little girl? And she got it for 20$ or something. Which apparently is a really good price for a goat. I think you should use her strategy in the future 🙂

    PS B says thanks for the recipe 🙂

    i made this tonight, and it was a fail. i’m not sure what the deal was, but it didn’t rise at all like yours. also after looking at your photos, my batter didn’t look as thick like cake batter. when it baked the top of mine formed a hard crust. i’m not sure what happened. i was really excited to try it.
