Apple Pancakes For “Brunch”
ton MATING on
Sunday or holiday "brunch”, that happy combination of a late,
late breakfast and an early hearty luncheon, has become a national
habit. This marvellous meal permits the kids to sleep late without
keeping mother everlastingly in the kitchen. And then v/hen every-
one is up and about — and hungry, too — it combines two mer-.ls in
'one. A time saver and a work saver, even a family fun occasion.
Pancakes have been a national
J habit, too, for a long, long time.
But apple pancakes are suggert-
ed this year as a pleasant charge,
^ for this has been a vintage year
in American orchards. Those ap-
J petizing 'cakes made of such tas-
ty ingredients as tart cooking
apples, cinnamon and lemon juice
satisfy even the biggest appe
tites in the most healthful way
They are easily and quickly
prepared, too, on the handsome,
new Revere Ware griddle, a
stunning companion piece to tho
popular hue of copper-clad stain-
less steel cooking utensils. The
£¿3 heavy copper bottom spreads the
heat evenly and swiftly. The
shiny stainless steel is so easy to clean. Those apple pancakes will
taste better, for sure.

Beat egg yolks until light and lemon-colored in 1 quart mixing
bowl; stir in milk and oil. Measure flour, sugar, salt and allspice
into 4 quart mixing bowl; add egg-milk mixture; beat with rotary
beater just until smooth. (Overbeating batter tends to toughen pan
cakes.) Batter will be fairly thin. Chill 30 minutes. Marinate
chopped apples in lemon juice while batter chills. Drain apples;
stir into batter. Combine egg whites and crear.i of tartar in 1
quart mixing bowl; beat until stiff; fold into apple mixture. Heat
Revere Ware griddle. Test temperature by sprinkling a few drop*
o f water on it. When drops "skitter” about, temperature is right.
Spoon 2 tablespoons batter onto heated griddle to make 3-inch pan-
cake. Repeat to make 3 or 4 pancakes at each baking. (They should
be about 1/4 inch thick.) Bake until tops appear fairly dry and
undersides are golden brown; turn; brown on other side. Sprinkle
each pancake with cinnamon and sugar; arrange in stacks of 3 or 4
on plate; cover until ready to serve.
