Apples and pancakes?

Want a breakfast (or dinner!) that looks like you have slaved for hours, but just took a few minutes? Here is a fun solution!

You need:

Pancake Mix
One Apple, peeled and grated
1/4 teaspoon of vanilla

Measure out your pancake mix according to how many you plan to feed. Before adding the water, sprinkle some cinnamon and whisk it into the dry pancake mix. (I used about 1 1/2 tsp. to feed 4 people. It is better to start with a little and add more. You can't take it out! :) I just add it till I can slightly see the speckles all through the dry mixture.)

Add your water; stir slightly. Add apples and vanilla and stir only till combined. Don't over stir or you will have yummy, but rubbery pancakes!

Heat up that griddle (or skillet), spray some cooking spray and drop them on! I suggest adding a little bit of butter to the pan, just enough to coat the bottom. The butter flavor with the apples and cinnamon takes it over the top! When they are bubbly and looking a bit "dry" around the edges, flip them and cook just a minute or two.

Serve hot with butter and syrup. YUM! Tastes like you have slaved for hours. :)

I usually serve with Sausage and a plate full of fresh fruit. Delicious!

You can try this for dinner when you are in a hurry but still want to have a quick home-cooked meal. Add some fast scrambled eggs for extra protein. Happy Cooking!
