German Apple Pancakes
Our pancake philosophies are different, but we still respect the preferences of one another. I’m a die hard maple syrup girl, and Felix is more of a fruit topped pancakes kind of guy.
In reality we all know that both schools of pancake are created equally delicious.
So these are German pancakes with apple and pear. I went totally wild and also dipped them in maple syrup #noregrets.
If you like your pancakes extra fluffy, you can either add a splash of sparkling water, or separate the egg yolks from egg whites, and whip the egg whites before adding them to the batter.
The suggestion to use an apple and a pear is a guideline. You could add a banana or some blueberries. Whatever is your best fruity combination/ whatever is in the fridge.
