It seem as though there’s a thousand different kinds of apples. I went to buy apples the other day and there were apples that I’ve never heard of before. I love the variety but I never know which ones to buy anymore. I like crisp, kinda sour, juicy ones, so I normally go for McIntosh but I also like a crisp Red Delicious and a fresh Royal Gala. For these Apple Pie Pancakes I used some apples that were given to me from a co-worker who grows them on her farm. I honestly have no clue what kind they are but they were delicious.
It’s a tradition in our house every Saturday morning to make pancakes, french toast or waffles. It’s one day where we can all sit down together for breakfast. My husband is usually the cook and we all wait in anticipation as he whips up something delicious.
This past weekend I suggested we make Apple Pie Pancakes and my husband quickly agreed and set into action before I even rolled out of bed. My husband is the main cook in our house and every night he makes us a delicious meal, pulling things out of the fridge and cupboards, tossing in a bit of this and that, and never measuring anything. That’s why the baking is left up to me because, as you know, baking usually involves careful measuring of ingredients.
So, when I gave my husband the task of making these Apple Pie Pancakes I gave him strict instructions to write down all the ingredients. Well, guess what? He didn’t! He did, however, use his mom’s pancake recipe but he made up his own apple pie filling. I sure hope his memory is better than his listening skills!
