Holiday Pancakes..

I always make special pancakes for breakfast Christmas morning and after finding this easy recipe I couldn't wait to Friday to try it out. The kids actually ate their entire breakfast today. I wish you could smell how amazing these are.


Holiday Apple Pancakes:

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more as needed
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  • 2 large eggs at room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cups milk at room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more as needed
  • 4 Macintosh or other small apples
  • Warm maple syrup, as an accompaniment if desired
Directions

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F. Set a wire rack on a baking sheet and place in the oven.

Whisk 1 3/4 cups flour, baking powder, the sugar, salt and nutmeg in a large bowl. In small bowl, whisk the eggs with the milk and vanilla extract. Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a large well-seasoned cast-iron or non stick skillet over medium heat. Whisk the butter into the milk mixture. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry mixture, and whisk just long enough to make a thick batter, (if there are a few lumps that's okay).

Using a melon baler or an apple corer, peel and core the apples keeping them whole. Slice the apples crosswise to make 1/4-inch rounds or O's. Put some flour on a plate and dredge the apple slices until lightly coated, shaking off any excess flour.

In the same skillet over medium to medium-low heat, place 3 apple slices next to eachother in the skillet. Cook without turning until browned, about 60 seconds. Ladle about 2 tablespoons of the batter over each apple ring. Cook, until bubbles break the surface of the pancakes, and the undersides are golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add a nut-sized bit of butter to the skillet, as needed, and flip the pancakes, cook until golden on the underside, about 1 minute more.

Serve immediately or transfer to oven to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining apples and batter. This recipe can be found at FoodNetwork.com

Whipped Cream:

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of heavy whipping cream
  • 2 teaspoons of granulated sugar


In stainless steel bowl that has been chilled add the cream and sugar and wisk until small peaks form in the whipped cream.

Glazed Pecans:

Add about 3 teaspoons of granulated sugar to skillet and add just enough water to wet the sugar, about 1 teaspoon. Heat the skillet over medium heat until sugar starts to bubble. Mix in 1/4 cup of pecans and and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Place pecans on wire rack to dry

Happy Holiday's Everyone!
