When you think of a pancake, what’s the first thing that comes to your mind? For me, I automatically envision a warm, sunny morning, being awoken by the smell of bacon. When I walk into the kitchen, I find a large plate full of sausage, bacon, and eggs. Sitting beside that is a platter stacked high with thick and fluffy pancakes still steaming hot. They sit there patiently waiting to be devoured. Is your mouth watering yet?
Pancakes are the most incredible breakfast options out there, in my humble opinion. I would eat them every morning if I could! For me, the sweeter and more fruit-filled, the better. When I found this recipe for one ginormous apple pancake, I knew it would be right up my alley. This pancake is unbelievably fluffy and bursting with sweet flavor. It tastes as though you’re digging into a hot slice of apple pie for breakfast, and who doesn’t want that? Check out the recipe below to see how to create this mind blowing breakfast meal.
2 tbsp. unsalted butter
2 Golden Delicious apples (peeled, cored, and sliced into ½ inch slices)
3 tbsp. sugar
1 tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
¼ c. pure maple syrup, plus additional for topping
1 c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
Pinch of salt
4 large eggs, separated
1 c. milk
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. In a 10.5 inch nonstick ovenproof skillet, melt your butter. Add in apple slices, 1 tbsp. of sugar, and the lemon juice. Cook over medium-high heat stirring occasionally until the apples turn a beautiful golden color (about six minutes). Add ¼ c. of maple syrup and simmer over low heat until thickened. Spread the apples out into an even layer, remove from heat, and set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg yolks with the milk and 2 tbsp. of sugar. Combine the liquid and dry ingredients together.
In another medium bowl, beat the egg whites at medium speed until stiff peaks form. Fold the beaten egg whites into the batter. Pour batter atop the apples. Bake the pancake for 20 minutes or until it’s golden and fluffy. Use a knife to loosen the pancake from the edges of the pan and turn upside down to release. Top with warmed maple syrup and enjoy!
