Apple Pancake Rings and Mini Pancake Stacks

Apple Pancake Rings
This is another recipe that I found on Pinterest! I thought it looked like a great idea for a breakfast recipe! It tasted very good but it was a pain to make! I tried to make it as easy as possible by using my 'go to' pancake batter recipe. But there were other problems that I did not for see!

Problem #1

Cutting the apples into rings and getting the core out, in a nice circle shape, was a bit of a challenge because I didn't have the proper tools for the job! I sliced the apple into rings and used a soda bottle cap to remove the core by pressing it into the center of each slice! But then I had a problem getting the apple core out of the bottle cap! I had to scrape each one out with the tip of a knife!

Problem #2
After dipping the apple slices into the batter and trying to fry the first slice, I realized that each apple slice would have to be allowed to drip of excess batter before frying or else you won't see the hole in the center of the apple ring! It would fill up with batter during frying! I went to a lot of trouble to make that nice hole, so I was going to make sure it was visible.

Problem #3
After frying the first apple pancake ring I noticed that the side of the ring was not cooked! I didn't want to eat raw pancake batter so I had to roll each apple pancake ring on its side in the frying pan to cook it thoroughly!

So other than those 3 problems, it was a great recipe! But I don't think I'll be making them very often! Actually I probably won't make it ever again! In case you want to give this recipe a try here is the link to the original recipe...**Apple Pancake Rings Recipe**

Mini Pancake StacksThis next pancake recipe was so much easier to make! I made it using my leftover pancake batter from the apple pancake rings! These are called Mini Pancake Stacks...and yes, I found this recipe on Pinterest also! I know, I'm a Pinterest addict! The original recipe called for whipped cream between the pancakes, but I used strawberry yogurt instead!

To make this recipe, you just need to make lots of mini pancakes and stack them with sliced strawberries and whipped cream between each pancake. Then skewer  them together with sandwich picks! There is no actual recipe posted anywhere for this! There is just a photo of the recipe on Pinterest, but it's pretty self explanatory!
