I always wake up before my husband Stan. He works late and I am the early bird. We both enjoy our schedules. I get to catch up with my blog in the morning while he is still sleeping, do the vast majority of my daily tasks, exercise, take a shower and start cooking breakfast. And he gets to wake up just in time to eat it. And if he didn't ask for a certain breakfast from the day before, surprises are going to happen. This was the breakfast I surprised him with this morning. He loved it! I encourage you, friends, to surprise your loved ones with these apple pancakes as soon as possible!
OK, let's move on to a few tips.
- If your kitchen is far from the bedroom, there is a chance that the apple-cinnamon aroma will not reach your "sleeping beauty" and wake him/her up. What you could do in this case is: just preheat the oven to 200F, wrap the pancakes in a foil and keep them there until you're ready to serve.
- Make sure that the griddle you are using has a non-stick coating.
- Don't over mix the batter: it tends to harden the more you beat it.
- Cook with love. Yes, it is important as well.
Serve these pancakes with honey and walnuts, vanilla ice cream, maple syrup, yogurt, fresh fruit, apple jam or any other kind of your favorite toppings. Enjoy your morning and have a great day, friends!
MINI APPLE WALNUT PANCAKES
- Combine milk, honey and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl and whisk everything together.
- In a separate bowl, mix the flour with baking powder, salt and cinnamon powder.
- Through the sifter add the flour to the milk mixture and stir gently until combined. Set aside.
- Peel and core the apple. Using a grater or food processor, grate the apple and add it to the batter together with walnuts. Stir it slightly to combine.
- Heat up a skillet or a frying pan to medium heat. Spray it with a little cooking oil. Using a 1/4-cup to measure, scoop the batter onto the hot skillet. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes until small bubbles form on the surface of the pancakes, and then flip it over. Working in batches, repeat this step until you run out of batter.
