Who doesn’t love a good indulgent breakfast? Especially when its pancakes. Pancakes are the comfort food of the breakfast family. I very rarely have pancakes, but when I do, I go for it. The more syrup and butter the better.
My husband loves pancakes. He never really had pancakes before meeting me. He would have the thin European kind which are also known as crepe. Then I came along and made these fluffy little dreams and his world turned upside down. Whenever I want something to get done or have a big day planned of events that he would not enjoy, I make a big batch of pancakes with some fruit and he is good to go. Men are simple sometimes.
One of my favourite fruit to make as a compote with my pancakes are apples. They are not too sour and blend nicely with the cinnamon.
The weather here has been rainy and gloomy, so what other way to brighten up my hubby’s day than with a batch of his favourite pancakes with apple cinnamon drizzle?
Fluffy Pancakes with Apple Cinnamon Compote
1 cup all purpose flour
3 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp white sugar
1 cup whole milk
1 large egg, beaten
3 tbsp butter, melted + room temperature
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
In a medium bowl combine all dry ingredients and mix. In a separate bowl mix wet ingredients until frothy. Slowly pour into the dry ingredient mixture until combined and clumps are removed. Set aside for 10 miuntes. In a large pan add canola oil on medium low heat and when hot, add a ladle of your pancake batter. Once small bubbles begin to form flip. Flip again until both sides are golden brown. Do not worry if your pancakes look a bit different, mine usually brown differently.
Apple Cinammon Compote
4 apples, chopped
1 tbsp cinnamon
3 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp butter, melted
In a small pot add butter, apples, cinnamon and brown sugar at high heat. Once liquid has decreased from the apples, turn down the heat to medium low and allow them to simmer for about 20 minutes until apples are tender. Remove from heat and serve.
