My mom cooked homemade food, from scratch before it was ever cool. She has files overflowing with recipes, sauce-slopped, burner-charred, well loved. A favorite I mentioned for cold weather breakfast is apple pancakes with cider syrup. And I might be just a little bit obsessive because I made this recipe every Sunday last winter, quite literally. Jared got tired of them (we argue about the deliciousness of pancakes in general on a regular basis) but I, I could eat them for every meal and still scarf down four or eight or seventeen…
See for yourself.
And some deliciousness from the Thanksgiving festivities–sadly, I didn’t get any photos of the fudge, the coconut Chex mix, the basil-pesto lasagna, the pecan and brown sugar-candied sweet potatoes, the pear and blue cheese salad….gahh. Some day I’ll actually convince my mom to let me hire her to bring me meals on wheels. Or maybe some day I’ll learn to follow a recipe instead of just thinking I can make everything up. Hmmm….
Add to any Pancake recipe:
½ tsp cinnamon
¾ C. peeled, chopped apple (abt. One apple)
Mix with batter and cook on griddle.
1 C. sugar
2 T. Cornstarch
½ tsp pumpkin pie spice
2 C. apple cider
2 T. lemon juice
¼ C. butter
Mix sugar, cornstarch, and spice in sauce pan. Stir in cider and lemon juice. Cook stirring constantly til mixture thickens and boils. Boil and stir one minute. Remove from heat and stir in butter.
MMMazing. Feel free to freak out to me about the amazingness of these pancakes once you try them.
Here’s to a fabulous week filled with coziness!
