Apple PancakesBy Ginny's TeamIt just so happens that two special events collide - Johnny Appleseed Day and National Pancake day. On September 26th, every year we celebrate the two. On this very day, in 1774, John Chapman (known as Johnny Appleseed) was born in Massachusetts. He is celebrated throughout much of the Midwest for planting apple trees across the area. THANK YOU JOHNNY! What better way to celebrate this special collision of "holidays" than with Apple Pancakes? Apple Pancakes are fluffy and sweet with a touch of cinnamon - ideal for a chilly Sunday morning in the fall. And who doesn't love their home smelling like spicy apples all day?
Blueberry PancakesBy Ginny's TeamWhen you have a little extra time on a weekend morning, pull out your fluffy slippers and treat your family with blueberry pancakes! Pancakes are a go-to favorite breakfast meal. We love adding in blueberries for a delicious and healthy one-two punch; did you know that blueberries are full of antioxidants, which are great for heart health? For truly excellent blueberry pancakes, let the batter sit and rest for a while to allow the gluten you've created through mixing to relax. And when it comes time to pour the batter on the griddle, try to enlist some little helpers! Kids love trying to make the perfect circle, though they may need a little help when it comes to flipping.
Biscuit DonutsBy Ginny's TeamYou just need a deep fryer and a tube of buttermilk biscuits to make these delicious, foolproof biscuit donuts! Pre-cut biscuit dough is the best secret weapon for perfectly round and perfect easy donuts. We love sprinkling our donuts with cinnamon, sugar, and powdered sugar, but you could also use store-bought frosting or glaze for an especially decadent twist. If you don't have a deep fryer, you can also heat about 2 inches of oil over your stove in a large-bottomed pot over medium heat. Biscuit donuts are a great snack to make with kids on the weekend; they'll love getting to cut out the donut shapes as much as they'll love eating them!
