Home Sweet, Sweet Home

Usual Sunday fare

Growing up, sunday mornings were synonymous with pancakes - blueberry, lemon poppyseed, and the classic apple.  I'd wake up to the smell of the batter frying on the griddle (pancakes turn out much better this way than on a frying pan) and I'd wait until I heard my mum flick on the kettle which meant they were ready before getting out of bed.  Years later, it's funny how some things never change. I sit in the same spot and take the same sections of the newspaper or grab a Good Food magazine. Bonus, there are usually leftovers that I get bring back with me!
Apple pancakes, applesauce, breakfast sausages, & maple syrup

2 eggs
1 1/2  cups buttermilk
1 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup whole wheat flour

3 tbsp granulated sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
2 apples, peeled and chopped

1. Whisk eggs lightly with buttermilk and butter.

2.  In a separate bowl, combine whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, rolled oats, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and sugar.  Stir together very well.
