One Easy Cure

The blogger flu we were discussing last post?

I found a cure. Maybe not a complete cure but something that will readily cheer your mind, warm your soul, and cause your heart to soar with delight. I found it in Anne’s list of goodies (recipes). She picked it up here. And I don’t care if you don’t like pancakes. You’re going to love this one.

Made it. It was so simple. Ate it plain with butter and a bit of icing sugar. It was so goo-oo-d.

It made me happy. Made Hub happy too. It made us blind to dreariness. And if we get more snow, more minus temps, more rain, more mud, I will simply make some more and remain obliviously happy.

Roberta, brown a few apple slices sprinkled with cinnamon in the butter as you melt it. Pour the batter over the apples and bake the pancake in the oven until puffed - about 20 minutes. Pour a little maple syrup over the top. Pure unadulterated heaven and sure to keep you oblivious to the weather ;)

Don't know how I missed this over at Anne's, but I was delighted once I followed your link and saw the photo image. I used to make this all the time and the lemon and sugar sprinkled on top was phenomenal. This is also basically how I make a very simple version of popovers to go with meat and gravy!

These sound mighty delicious Roberta...I love pancakes. I've just started to be serious about watching what I and the Doc have had a long and serious talk recently. But these pancakes seem like they would be very therapeutic in their own right. Hey, it IS pouring rain outside.

pauline, thanks for that variation. How great will that be for a quick desert when the grandkids or unexpected company arrive? Maybe a little ice cream on top as well.

susan, thanks for the comment. Everyone in my family loves Yorkshire pudding but I don't make it often. Hub and the kids complain I don't make it often enough but with this easy version, thanks to your hint, we'll be having it a whole lot more. I'm totally convinced this will be every bit as good without bringing ingredients to room temp, chilling batter, washing muffin tins, etc. which is all of the 'hard labor' involved in traditional Yorkshire pudding.

joy, what rain? you luxuriate
with pancake on
a floral plate?

P.S. If the rainclouds are widely dispersed better double the recipe.
