I found a recipe for Fried Apple Pancakes,
But I knew a wanted them baked.
I tweaked the recipe to fit my needs...
And a yummy breakfast on a Saturday morning was made.
Baked Apple Pancakes
2 Sweet Apples
1 cup Bisquick
1/2 cup Milk
1 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon, optional
Lemon Juice, to prevent browning
Gourmet Maple Praline Syrup
Preheat your griddle to medium temperature.
Using a mandolin, slice apples on thinnest setting.
Take a small round cookie cutter and press into the center of each slice, thus removing the core.
Immediately place into a bowl with a couple of tablespoons of lemon juice to prevent browning.
Mix together the Bisquick, egg, milk and spices until just incorporated.
Dip apple slices into the batter and place in the griddle.
The side facing up will need a little batter spread on the top for better batter coverage.
Flip once the first side is lightly browned.
Once the second side is equally browned, serve immediately.
Drizzle syrup of your choice.
We used a Gourmet Maple Praline that was amazing from a local grocery store.
These didn't go over as well as I would have liked, because I forgot that Matt doesn't like warm fruit...
and Asher thought the apple needed to be on the outside of the pancake. He picked it apart and ate them separately.
Due to the moisture of the apples and lemon juice, the batter did not want to adhere, so I had to spread extra batter on top.
That syrup is SOOOO GOOD! Combined with the apple pancake... divine.
Abbie and I enjoyed them, so Girls Rule!
