Mom's Thin Pancakes

3 eggs

2 cups milk

1 1/2 cups flour

1/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup cocoa, optional


4 medium flavorful apples

1 tablespoon orange zest

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Optional Toppings

2 cups vanilla yogurt

1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted

Chocolate syrup


Mom's Thin Pancakes

Combine pancake ingredients; beat until smooth; allow to sit 20-30 minutes while preparing Applesauce.

Heat non-stick fry pan or griddle over medium heat (if needed spray with non-stick spray); pour 1/4-cup batter on griddle and gently spread with the back of a spoon to make 8-inch round pancake (pancake will be thin, like a crepe). Cook until top is dry and bottom is lightly browned; gently flip and cook opposite side.

Fresh Applesauce

Quarter and core apples (do not peel). Separate out half of the apples in a food processor or blender; process until pureed (scrape down sides of bowl as needed). Dice the other half of the apples into chunks. Combine together purred and diced apples, orange zest, lemon juice, and cinnamon in a medium saucepan. Simmer on low for 10-15 minutes, stirring frequently.

Place two pancakes on individual plate; spoon approximately 1/4-cup applesauce down center each pancake and fold over or roll up. Drizzle with optional chocolate syrup, spoon 1/3 cup yogurt over top, sprinkle with chopped nuts.

Note: Try this recipe out for a light and refreshing Mother's Day breakfast for the whole family.
