These Pancakes Will Make You Love October 31 (hint: Not Halloween Related)

Everyone knows that October 31 is reserved for the most fun holiday ever: Halloween. But a little less known fact is that October 31 also honors one American classic, the Caramel apple. Everyone who lives in the States is bound to fondly remember eating these treats every fall regardless of whether It was at a fair or at the local park, I don’t know about your neighborhood, but where I come from girl scouts oftentimes sold caramel apples instead of cookies.

Each year,although oblivious of this holiday, we celebrate it by giving trick-or-treaterscaramel apples. And this year I wanted to get a bit more creative and alongside the caramel apples prepare a pancake variation that would include apples and caramel as key ingredients. I went on and consulted MyGreatRecipes,oneofthebestfoodsitesoutthere, and I foundjusttherecipes I needed.

Apple Cider Pancakes with Caramel Apple Syrup

To be quite honest I didn’t think I’d find a pancake recipe that was going to resemble caramel apple, at least texture-wise, since they have a certain crispiness to them. But I could go for a pancake whose taste is a combination of sweet and tart, and the Apple Cider Pancakes with Caramel Apple Syrup I found among Over 100 American Pancake Recipeswere the answer to my prayers. Of course the syrup is thick and sticky, so one can’t quite say it’s a real resemblance of the caramel apple, but it is as close as it gets.

A Soft Pancake with a Crispy Caramel Apple Topping

Being innovative as I am, is both a blessing anda curse. And in this case it turned out to be more like the latter. It was so difficult to find a pancake recipe that would be like smeared butterscotch candy all over my apple, while at the same time remaining fluffy as a pancake should be. So again I found the answer in a combination. I used the classic American pancake recipe to make myselfa soft and warm pancake stack, and then proceeded to preparing a caramel apple topping. Iused the usual manner of preparing the caramel apple, I removed the stem, then prepared my caramel and milk and dipped the apples in.I didn’t go to the trouble of putting sticks in, instead I chopped my apples prior to putting them into the caramelsauce…and voila I had my self a crispy caramel apple topping to go with my pancakes.

Apples into a Pancake

Last, but certainly not least, I decided to prepare pancakes that would include apples in the batter and thus get a bit crispier texture. The Caramel Apple Pancakes were a huge success, I added some of the leftover syrup from the first recipe, and we had ourselves a tasty meal in no time. Not to mention it took me and hubby down memory lane, as I hope it would be the case with my kidsone day.
