Perfect snowy day breakfast..pancakes with caramel apples!

Once it starts to melt a touch, add in the Sugar in the Raw (conventional sugar works too, I just like Raw)

The butter and sugar will start to boil, so that is when you turn the heat to low and add in the apples. Fold the apples in, add salt, and keep folding. Do not stir or flip the caramel around..for the caramel is SUPER hot and can burn you pretty badly.

Let stew on low for 30 minutes, folding occassionally. And done! Served on top or on the side of pancakes ..yum! Breakfast of Champs! 😉 (we made valentine pancakes, but my heart kept turning into Mickey heads…so I just made Disney shapes!)…this is also a child sized plate! 

Pancakes
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 tablespoons Sugar in the Raw
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 1/2 to 1 3/4 cups milk
2 tablespoons vanilla extract

Sift the flour in a large bowl.
Add in the flour with the baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt.
In another bowl, lightly whisk the eggs then add the milk. Whisk in the canola oil.
Quickly stir in the flour mix and add in the vanilla.
Do not overwork the batter.
Heat a griddle or a large skillet, over medium-high heat.
Brush with butter or oil.
Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to pour out the batter onto the pan.
When bubbles start to break through at the top, flip and cook until they are brown on the other side.
Serve right away.
