Happy November!!!  Happy Fall!

Fall is absolutely my favorite season, for its beautiful rich dense colors and the chill in the air. While summer has its own glory, this time of the year brings out the warmth, coziness, and hospitality in all of us.  The plethora of colors we see when we go for a walk is unmatched, although living in the Bay, the fall colors are not easily seen.

Weekend comes and I always almost have waffles, muffins or pancakes.  The thought that comes when I make these is that, they would come handy on the weekdays too.  Guess what, I make 10 or 30, they are gone by Sunday evening.

This recipe definitely came by with a sneaky thought to add fruit in a pancakes to amp up the healthy game.  Boy, did I know that these would be requested a lot.  Apples are probably some of my favorite fruits to bake with, also because they were commonly available in India, and so sweet and delicious.  My teen can make this in a jiffy.  They’re probably the easiest and most delicious fluffiest pancakes.

Almost like having a cake for breakfast, now that’s a delicious way to start off the day, right?!!

Have the best week ever!

    Gorgeous! I love the addition of apples in your pancakes. Definitely amps up the pancake game 🙂 I am loving the slight chill in the mornings now, although am not exactly a morning person 😉 I love the shots, esp the last one!

    These Fall flavoured pancakes look to die for, Asha. I bet you can’t stop eating those candied nuts :-)) I certainly wouldn’t until they were all gone!

    Your post reminded us exactly how we feel about fall. Isn’t it an amazing season?
    The pancakes look fantastic. Pancakes are a new thing here in Greece, and we have to ask you (since you mentioned making some ahead in the weekend): is there a way we can make let’s say 10 and use them for breakfast throughout the week? Can they be stored and reheated?
    Thanx in advance:)
    Have a wonderful season sweetie.
    Sending you lots and lots of love,
    Panos and Mirella

      How are you guys doing? I have been thinking about you. Thanks so much for your sweet words.
      You can absolutely make these in advance and freeze upto a month. Reheat it and they are fresh and new made.
      Much love to you both.
