Mini Caramel Apple Pancakes

In my house Sunday mornings  are for creating  something magical in the kitchen! It’s our time to bond and generally speaking, make something super delicious we can indulge on. My little pop!TOT is all about the pancakes so we decided to make Mini Caramel Apple Pancakes since I actually had some apples in the kitchen.

What I love about this recipe is that it’s beyond easy. And yes, there are plenty of ways you can make this fancier such as making your own caramel, but honestly after the week I had fast, yummy and cute won!

The details are below!

           DSC_0319We had these Granny Apples in the house so we picked up one and were ready to go.

DSC_0318We prefer the Granny Apples because they are tart and crisp
