Breakfast is probably my favorite meal of the day. Well, next to lunch of course… Then again, dinner rocks pretty hard too… Then there’s snack time… Oh never mind!
When Mom was still with me one of our favorite rituals was Sunday breakfast. I’d make a big meal with (usually) some type of pancake or waffle, bacon, coffee, juice or whatever took our fancy. I’ve made some amazing meals and a few (okay, maybe more than a few…) disasters.
Note: If you have an inclination toward making black walnut waffles…make sure your walnuts are chopped to the nth degree. Mine got stuck in the crevasses and needless say…many innocent waffles were ravaged that day!
But when it comes to pancakes, I am the Pancake Goddess Extraordinaire! Mine are so good they’ll make you sit up and slap your mama! Below is my quick and easy recipe for Applesauce pancakes using Bisquick. Some mornings I’d be running late and using a boxed baking mix is a great time saver.
2 cups Bisquick Baking Mix (or Jiffy)
1 cup applesauce
1/2 cup cold milk
2-3 teaspoons cinnamon
Mix together until it reaches the consistency you like. A thicker mix will yield heavier pancakes while a thinner mix will make them thin and crispy. Heat your frying pan or griddle with a dab of butter or cooking spray. Pour in your mix and let cook until bubbles appear on the top. Flip it over and let it cook for another minute or two. Serve piping hot!
Serving Size: Four 7-8″ pancakes
Note: I use sweetened, home made cinnamon applesauce but then again I am an over-achiever. Since I use Red Hot candies in my applesauce my pancakes come out pink – what’s not to like about that?
