This is what we had for breakfast today. 🙂
Our Girls loved it! And if your kids say: " You are the best, Mom!" and your husband gives you a big smooch and says: "Every breakfast is like a Sunday breakfast in this kitchen." - you are bound to have a great day. 🙂
We have a little tradition in our family - we make waffles and pancakes for breakfast on every Sunday morning. Yes, it's Wednesday, but I had this recipe following me for a while now and today was the day to try it. So worth it!
The recipe I used comes from Rose Marie Donhauser's book "Apples & Pears Favorite Recipes". I changed it slightly. Instead of a wok, I used a medium size saucepan. Also, I didn't add melted butter to the pancake batter.
Emperor's Apple Pancakes
adapted from Rose Marie Donhauser's "Apples & Pears Favorite Recipes" ( I didn't find it available on Amazon )
2/3 cup of all-purpose flour
7 oz milk
4 1/4 tbsp butter
2 tbsp sugar + 1 tsp ground cinnamon ( mixed together in a small bowl )
makes 4 medium size puffed pancakes
Separate the eggs.
Place egg yolks in a mixing bowl. Add flour and milk. Beat together until combined.
Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gently fold into the yolks mixture.
Peel apples, cut into quarters and then slice thinly.
In a medium saucepan melt butter. Add the apples. Let cook for about 3 minutes. Sprinkle with the cinnamon and sugar mixture. Stir. Let caramelize. Pour into a bowl.
In the same saucepan, place 1/4 of your caramelized apples. Top with 1/4 of the pancake batter. Cook on medium heat, until the edges start to brown and when you shake the saucepan gently - the pancake slides easily. Flip gently to cook the other side. Repeat to make 4 pancakes.
Serve warm, sprinkled with powdered sugar.
