Recipe: Caramelized Apple Pancake Syrup


13 Oct Recipe: Caramelized Apple Pancake Syrup

Don’t get me wrong, I like pancakes. But sometimes the expression “Flat as a pancake,” describes my enthusiasm for this dish. Unadorned, they’re pallid, uneven, and large-pored. This describes my skin without make-up. It’s not something you should be serving guests before noon.

Oh, sure I can drizzle them with maple syrup, but sometimes you need to shake things up a bit. It’s apple season and since I put apples in the pancakes, why not put apples on the pancakes as well. The results?  A pan of goopy, butterscotchy fruit that cooked in the time it takes to make a supporting batch of flap jacks. So decadent and sweet, it’s enough to make the maple syrup sulk.

What do you put on your pancakes?

    I’m pretty much a pancake purist. Butter and maple syrup hve pretty much been the extent of my adornments until lately. Homemade blueberry syrup has risen high on my list lately. I’m a sucker for anything with apples so this would right up my alley.

      @Janet Foster, homemade blueberry syrup? Ohhhh, that sounds amazing. I used to love it when I was a kid — but that was artificial stuff.

      Think I’ll be researching blueberry syrup soon…

    When I think of pancakes mine are of the crepe variety – but a slathering of toffee-flavoured apple syrup would be welcome on the daintiest of pancake. A combination of softened apple pieces, apple syrup and creme fraiche as a filling would make a divine dessert.
