So this weekend we had a bit of an impromptu out of control drinking night with Lib, my new roommate and friend. I came home after watching a modern dance artsy performance at the theater, remembering we had quite a bit of liquor left from our house warming party from the previous weekend. So in between me demonstrating to Lib what I had seen, some very well executed leg throwing and dashing about, (aka mad dancing that resulted in me injuring myself a bunch of times) we quenched our thirst to some of the Czech Republic’s finest beverages, Becherovka and Absinthe.
Needless to say our states were pitiful the next day. And still the day after. But I refused to let myself be brought down one more day and had an idea to cheer the both of us up. PANCAKES.
And on the bright side, both roommies had brought back heaps heaps of apples from their country-side trip a couple of days ago. It was time to put them to good use. So here it is, the ultimate recipe to cheer up hungover roommates :
2 eggs, well beaten
1 1/2 cups of milk
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar
5 tiny apples (handpicked with care by adorable roommies)
Cinnamon and nutmeg for extra oompf Vegetable oil, for frying
Confectioner’s sugar, for dusting
– Firstly, put this tune on: Jack Johnson – Banana Pancakes
– Then, finely chop the apples. put them in a cooking pot on medium heat, cover them with water. When they are soft and mushy, take them out and mix in a mixer, it should look like applesauce.
– Mix the eggs with the milk in a large bowl. – In another bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar together.
– Combine the wet and the dry ingredients and stir in the apples, cinnamon and nutmeg spices.
– Heat a thin layer of oil in a frying pan over low to medium heat. Drop large spoonful of batter into the pan and flatten it out a little (otherwise, you might have trouble getting them to cook in the center) and cook until golden brown underneath. Flip the pancakes over until you get the same result on both sides.
– Either dust with powdered sugar and serve immediately, or keep on a tray in a warmed oven until you are ready to serve them.
or Spring and Summer.
Or whenever… You know. I’m sure you get the gist. Ta.
P.S 2: Also notice there is no butter, and very little sugar. So awesome recipe to stay healthy ; ) Mouaah.
