Apple Pecan Pancakes with Apple Spice Syrup
1 cup (250 ml) all-purpose flour
2 Tbs (30 ml) brown sugar
2 tsp (10 ml) baking powder
1/2 tsp (2 ml) salt
1/2 tsp (2 ml) ground cinnamon
3/4 cup (180 ml) plus 2 Tbs (30 ml) milk
2 eggs, separated, whites stiffly beaten
1 tsp (5 ml) vanilla extract
1/2 cup (125 ml) peeled and finely chopped apple
1/2 cup (125 ml) finely chopped pecans
Combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in a mixing bowl. Stir in the milk, egg yolks, and vanilla. Fold in the apple, pecans, and beaten egg whites.
