Who doesn’t love pancakes? Especially when it comes to apple pancakes with homemade apple sauce. They are moist, fragrant and extremely enjoyable. I am sure you will love them.
How many apples have changed history to date? First, the apple that Eva ate, then the apple that fell on Newton’s head and then the well-known bitten apple. Would it be an exaggeration to include the apple I added to my pancakes? I say no. You?
WHAT kind of APPLES SHOULD I USE?
For these awesome apple pancakes with homemade apple sauce I used the fuji apples. I chose this variety as they have a mild sweet taste, but also a crunchy texture. Thus, the homemade apple sauce was not very sweet, while their texture prevent them from melting during cooking.
May I substitute strained Greek yogurt?
If you want to substitute strained Greek yogurt you can do it. Instead of yogurt, you can add sour milk, or milk. In case you choose milk, then I would suggest you either add half tablespoon of flour, or not to fill your cup all the way up. This is because milk has a different density than yogurt and sour milk.
Tips for making pancakes
Making some pancakes it is very easy. But it is also very easy to destroy a bunch of them. What should you do in order to avoid being in the second group? Well, there are two things to have in mind.
The temperature at which we cook the pancakes should be medium. Don’t cook over high heat because the pancake will get burned on the outside and also the mixture will not be spread properly on the pan.
- The pan
It is very important to use a non-stick frying pan. Even if using a non-stick frying pan, do not forget to butter it slightly before cooking each pancake.
