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!
