Queen Stewart’s Pancake Surprise

Start Your Day Right with Martha Stewart's Effortless Applesauce Pancakes and Creamy Sour Cream in Just 35 Minutes!

I tried Martha Stewart’s quick applesauce pancakes with sour cream for breakfast, cooked in just 35 minutes.

Oh, fashionistas, let me take you on a delectable journey with the one and only Martha Stewart. Brace yourselves for a pancake experience like no other. Trust me, it’ll spark your taste buds and tickle your fashion-fancy.

Now, Martha isn’t afraid to strut her stuff in the kitchen. She’s got tricks up her designer sleeves that’ll have you saying, “Who knew pancakes could be so chic?” From cinnamon rolls infused with mashed potatoes to cookies featuring crumbled potato chips with bacon, this 82-year-old icon is a true culinary fashionista.

One recipe that has the fashion world buzzing is Martha’s 35-minute applesauce pancakes. Yes, you read that right. These pancakes are so stylish, they come with their own twist. “We add applesauce to the batter, which makes the pancakes extra moist, and spread applesauce and sour cream between each layer for the ultimate fall stack,” Martha reveals.

Can you imagine? Applesauce and sour cream mingling together between fluffy pancake layers like a fashionable ensemble. It’s like pairing a fabulous dress with killer accessories! I know, it sounds like a daring combination, but trust me, it works like a charm. Sipping champagne on a Parisian rooftop kind of charm.

Now, let me break down the ingredients with a little runway flair. Picture this: a whisk strutting down the catwalk, a large bowl taking center stage, measuring cups hitting all the right notes, and a griddle or cast-iron skillet working it like a supermodel. It’s a performance worthy of a standing ovation.

For the pancake batter, gather 2 cups of all-purpose flour, 3 tablespoons of sugar (sweetness is always in vogue), 1 tablespoon of baking powder, and 1 ½ teaspoons of coarse salt. In a separate lineup, we have 2 large eggs, 2 cups of room temperature milk, ¾ cup of Martha’s Pink Applesauce (her personal touch), and 4 tablespoons of melted unsalted butter. Don’t forget the accessories: a few dollops of sour cream for serving.

Now, let’s start the pancake parade. Command your whisk to blend the dry ingredients with a flourish. Think of it as choreographing a truly elegant routine. Once your dry ingredients are in sync, add the wet ingredients to create your batter masterpiece. Whisk them together but keep it “slightly lumpy” to add some texture.

Now, darling, it’s showtime! Prepare your stage (aka griddle or cast-iron skillet) by lightly buttering up the heated surface. Pour the batter onto the runway, ½ cup at a time. Martha suggests the griddle or cast-iron skillet, but any trusty pan will do. Let the pancakes strut their stuff for about three minutes on each side, until they are cooked all the way through.

But here’s where they take it to the next level: between each pancake layer, add dollops of sour cream and applesauce. It’s like accessorizing your outfit with statement pieces, creating a tower of flavor that’ll make breakfast a runway-worthy event.

I was skeptical too, my fashion-forward friends, but let me tell you, Martha’s magic worked wonders. These pancakes are a sweet treat that elevates the humble breakfast staple. The hint of apple in each bite is so divine, you might be tempted to skip the extras.

These pancakes are naturally sweet, so no need to drown them in sugary syrup. They’re moist, they’re flavorful, and they’re all about that Fall fashion. But the big question remains: why the sour cream and applesauce combo? Here’s the scoop, my trendsetters: the applesauce complements the 3/4 cup mixed into the batter, creating a lighter, less sugary alternative to syrup.

Now, hold on to your Gucci handbags. The sour cream, my darlings, takes you on a journey down memory lane. It’s like eating Latkes, the beloved Hanukkah potato pancakes. Latkes are usually enjoyed with applesauce and sour cream, and trust me, it’s a match made in heaven. The slightly tart flavor atop the sweet applesauce pancake is like the perfect designer accessory.

So, ladies and gents, if you’re ever running low on syrup, just turn to the timeless elegance of applesauce and sour cream. Trust me, your taste buds will thank you, and you’ll feel like a true fashion insider. So grab your mixing bowls and start strutting your stuff in the kitchen. It’s time to embrace the haute couture of pancakes and indulge in Martha Stewart’s Pancake Surprise!
