Sometimes you have to have dessert for dinner

Who wants a pancake, Sweet and piping hot? Good little Grace looks up and says, “I’ll take the one on top.”

Who else wants a pancake, Fresh off the griddle? Terrible Teresa smiles and says, “I’ll take the one in the middle.”

—Shel Silverstein, Where the Sidewalk Ends

Sometimes you have to have dessert for dinner.  That’s the kind of a night it was last night.  Nico and I just decided to have apple pancakes — with the possible excuse of getting a small amount of fiber and vitamins from the fruit — for dinner.  No salad. No vegetables. No protein. Just straight up sugar and spice and everything nice.

Here’s the recipe from Smitten Kitchen. I used a little less sugar, a lot more cinnamon (the recipe didn’t call for it anyway) and some vanilla.  And, I chose yogurt instead of milk and will never go back. These were the most scrumptious pancakes I’ve ever had — regardless of the time of day.

I suggest you do it too…either before New Year’s Resolution time…or maybe as one of your resolutions.  Either way, let me know how it goes!

  1. I would try it, but I just made Tartiflette using TONS of cheese…

    Plus, I still have quite a bit of chocolate and sweets in my kitchen! 😛

    I am a huge fan of using yogurt in recipes! In the States I often use plain yogurt in salads instead of mayonaise or sour cream (or creme fraiche? That quiche was a little odd, though), and I’ve liberally tried using it in baking. I’ll let you know if I try this recipe, it sounds great 🙂

    • Yay, Julie! So glad to hear you approve. Yogurt is so good for you, and it adds such flavor. Maybe we can do these pancakes together sometime…when we have another inkling for America!
