Reminiscing about California or: American Pancakes with Stewed Apples

February 1, 2015

As much as I love being back in Germany and having a proper winter with loads of snow, I sometimes wish I could beam myself to the other hemisphere and be able to escape the cold for only a few days. During all my travels, I always enjoy spending an afternoon at a cozy café trying out one of the many items on the menu. By the time I get back to Germany, I do not only have a second suitcase (at least this time I had), but also brought many inspirations I am excited to try out in my own kitchen. But apart from that, there is always the one thing I know I will associate with a certain place I have been to – and for my stay in Long Beach it is definitely pancakes and bagels. So whenever I need a dose of California, I put on my apron and just bake these golden brown treats I had so many times myself.

This is the recipe that I think comes closest to original American pancakes and I promise it will help beat the winter blues. Plus, it’s easy-peasy and won’t take you longer than 20 mins.
