Apple week Day #2

Kai and Cash swtitched days today because we are planning an after school trip to the apple orchard which would have us home too late for Cash to get something made and delivered. Kai chose his all time favorite food- Pantakes. Whenever you ask him what he wants for breakfast/lunch/dinner/snack he says Pantakes. I'm surprised we are this far into this project and just now making pancakes. We didn't want to make pancakes and then deliver them because they would get all cold and hard so we decided to make pancake mix and then make apple syrup to go with the pancake mix.
First off we have to take the stickers off of the apples. Have you ever thought to think about the person that puts stickers on you apples...what a job.

Next peel core and chop out apples. This apple slicer is one of our FAVORITE kitchen tools, this thing saves alot of time and cut fingers.

Chopping - apple stuff is hard to make!

Adding the sugar, if I made this syrup again I wouldn't add as much sugar, it came out really sweet.

Flour Fehry dust, we seem to have some on every project. This is our pancake mix.

We decided we needed to make some pancakes so we could try our syrup. They were YUMAPPLEDUMPLICOUS!

Don't know why we chose not to use forks!

Really liked this pancake mix, they turned out light and fluffy even with a fair amount of whole wheat. Like I said the syrup was a little sweet next time less sugar or maybe a little lemon juice, we also added a touch of butter and some vanilla to the original recipe.

Homemade Pancake Mix

2 cups whole wheat flour
2/3 cup sugar
