Applesauce Pancakes for a Rainy Sunday

My pancakes were showing me their sexy side for this photo.
These would be perfect for fall but when I woke up this morning to a rainy cloudy day they seemed to call out to me.  What did they say? "Make me!"  That was all the persuasion I needed.  I was up late the night before and I still hadn't had my coffee so I was pretty influencable.

Applesauce Pancakes 

Yields 6 to 8 servings

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup milk or rice milk for a vegan version
1/2 cup applesauce
1/4 cup melted butter

In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Combine eggs, milk, applesauce, and butter; add to dry ingredients and mix well. Pour about 1/3 cup of batter onto a lightly greased hot griddle. Turn when bubbles form on top; cook until second side is golden brown. Keep warm while making the remaining pancakes.

Confession: I may lose my foodie license for this confession.  I heat up 100% real maple syrup for the hubby and I use Mrs. Butterworth.  He has threatened to post this information on my facebook fan page.  I spoke with my publicist and she informed me that I needed to be the one to put this very private information out there first.  Please....don't hold this confession against me! 

Too sexy for Mrs Butterworth?  I think not!
~ Enjoy!

  4. These look so yummy. My hubby and son look at my daughter and I like aliens when we do our pancakes. As they pour on syrup, me and Kiana spread butter on ours then sprinkle them with sugar. My Mom used to do it. Don't know where the idea came from but it's the only way I'll eat them.

    They were a bit of a show off that morning! I think the sprinkling of raw sugar really made them feel sexy!
