|Apple Cinnamon Pancakes!|
|Absolutely NONE of these were salvagible. How sad!|
|Apples and cinnamon!|
|My delicious pancakes... from scratch!|
I haven't used a hand mixer before, so I whipped it out today to whip up my egg whites... which I expertly seperated from the yolks!
|Look at those peaks!|
Apple Cinnamon Pancakes
1 tsp. butter
3 apples, cored, diced
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup plus 1 Tbsp. sugar
2 cups Flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1 cup cottage cheese
1 1/4 cup milk
4 large eggs, seperated
Over a bowl, use a grater to zest the lemon. Cut the lemon into wedges, set aside.
Heat butter in a small saute pan over medium heat. Add the apples, cinnamon, lemon zest, and 1/4 cup of sugar. Heat until apples are slightly mushy.
In a medium bowl, combine the flour, salt, 1 Tbsp. sugar, and baking powder. In another bowl, beat the cottage cheese with milk and egg yolks. Add the flour mixture and stir until combined. Let batter sit for 10 minutes.
Beat egg whites with a hand mixer until soft peaks form.
Gently fold in apples into batter followed by folding in the egg whites. (Make sure you don't overmix!)
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium low heat. Melt 1/2 tbsp. butter at the center of the skillet.
Spoon batter into the hot skillet, directly onto the butter.
Cook until each pancake until the bottom is golden brown and the bubbles on the surface begin to break, about two minutes. Flip the pancake and cook until golden brown, about one more minute.
Serve with maple syrup and lemon wedges.
