Get those sleepy heads out of bed with the aroma of Pancakes with Warm Apple and Cinnamon Syrup wafting through your home
Pancakes make the perfect breakfast any day of the week but we especially love it on a cold morning for breakfast. Drizzled With the warm apple cinnamon syrup this makes such a comforting breakfast. Do you know that I actually call this my miracle breakfast because I don’t have to
scream and yell call for the boys a million times to come eat their breakfast. Because the aroma of the warm syrup cooking does the job for me.😉How great is that
If you are a regular reader of my recipes then you will know how much I love baking or cooking with buttermilk. And these pancakes are no different. Buttermilk highly improves the texture and colour of baked goods and also gives it a great taste. When you use buttermilk in pancakes it reacts with the bicarbonate of soda / baking soda creating small bubbles of carbon dioxide which makes it absolutely light and fluffy. Can you see how obsessed/ crazy I am about baking with buttermilk that I actually gave you a one sentence science fact there and by the way that is the only science fact which I know !!!🤓
These are super easy to make….but try to use a non stick heavy based pan, like a cast iron pan which distributes the heat evenly. You could also use cooking spray or brush or wipe the frying pan using paper towel lightly with oil. This will ensure that the pancakes do not stick. I use a ladle to pour the batter into the pan. You could swirl the pan to even out the batter or using the back of the ladle, spread the batter out evenly into a circle. After about 40 seconds , Flip the pancake over when you see bubbles appear on the surface. Repeat on the other side for about 40 seconds again and remove from the heat and put it onto a plate. This process is repeated until all the batter is used up. You can keep the stack of pancakes warm by covering lightly with foil until you are ready to serve with the apple and cinnamon syrup.
The syrup is made with peeled and chopped apples which have been cooked until tender in butter or margarine and sugar for 5 minutes. The maple or golden syrup is stirred into the apple mixture and poured over the warm pancakes.😋
I hope that you have a sweet start to the week with these yummy pancakes …. Happy Monday !!!
