I realised when I went to get the apple juice needed for these from the fridge that we actually only had apple & mango juice, no biggie, I like apple & mango juice & I couldn't see any reason why the substitution wouldn't work. By this point I already had my heart set on these pancakes so I knew I was going to forge ahead! I like how they make you feel fancy with their accompanying apple topping & as Isa says on the blog they were meant to go into Appetite For Reduction making these a healthy pancake! That meant no guilt about eating them at 10pm after a full day of polishing off all of the leftovers in the fridge, a whole lotta toast & half a bar of my favourite chocolate.
These are seriously some of the best pancakes I've ever made. Taste wise the combination of apples, cinnamon & maple syrup was always going to be a winner & they were just the right level of sweet. On top of the winning flavour these actually turned out round & perfect looking too! I used my new favourite gadget the Grill & Griddle to make these as the flat plates are perfect for pancakes but they're also the perfect size to make a half batch of this recipe. It keeps an even temperature all over too which is something I often have trouble with when cooking pancakes on my gas stove which can result in sad burnt bottomed, mushy centred pancakes.
Anyway, it's definitely time for me to head to bed now (perhaps I'll read a few more blogs on the way...) but you should definitely make these immediately, or y'know tomorrow for breakfast if you have a little more restraint than I do!
