DirectionsSpiced Apple Topping
- Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat.
- Add SweeTango® apples, brown sugar, cinnamon, and water.
- Cook, stirring occasionally, until apples have softened and the mixture has a jam-like consistency (about 10-15 minutes).
- Set aside (can be served hot or at room temperature and will keep in the fridge for 2-3 days).
- In a large mixing bowl, sift or whisk together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, sugar, and salt. Set aside.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together egg yolk, vanilla, milk, and melted butter.
- In a third bowl, beat egg white just until stiff peaks form.
- Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Fold in apples, then gently fold in egg whites, taking care not to over-mix.
- Melt 1 Tbsp butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Pour ¼ cup batter for each pancake. Flip after 1-2 minutes, or until bubbles appear on the uncooked side. Continue cooking for 2 minutes, or until both sides are lightly golden brown. Repeat with the remaining batter, adding more batter and adjusting the pan heat as needed.
- Top with spiced apples and maple syrup if desired.
