sunday morning

typically on sunday mornings i make pancakes, waffles, or french toast. in the summer we buy pints and pints of strawberries, slice 'em up and cover the pancakes with them, drizzle real maple syrup over them and enjoy. in the fall and winter, when the strawberries are only from california and not as good as local, i cut up apples and cook them on the stove- like apple pie without the pie.

waffles with apples

1 cup flour
2 tbsp sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup milk
2 tbsp butter, melted

whisk all dry ingredients together, add wet ingredients and whisk together. some clumps are okay. follow the directions for your waffle iron and don't add too much otherwise it'll ooze out the sides.
if you're making pancakes with this recipe, you may decide to add up to 1/4 cup more milk for a thinner pancake.

4 medium sized apples, i prefer gala or pink ladies as they don't go all smushy. granny smiths are good, too
lemon juice
1/2 tsp cinnamon
dash of each cloves and nutmeg
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp butter

peel, core and slice apples into either cubes or slices, squeeze lemon juice over the apples. place all the ingredients into a pan and cook until desired tenderness of the apples, about 5-8 minutes. spoon over waffles and drizzle with warm, real maple syrup. whipping cream is also good with this. and don't forget the coffee!
