Friday Foodday

Happy Black Friday everyone. Today's Friday Foodday is going to get you carbed up and hydrated after a long day of shopping.

German Apple Pancakes
c/o Annie Bakes
4 eggs- room temperature
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup whole mil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
5 tablesponns butter
3 apples- cored, peeled and sliced
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 cup brown sugar


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a medium bowl, beat the eggs with a whisk. Add in the four, milk, salt and vanilla. Set aside to rest.
Heat an oven-proof skillet over medium-high heat and add the butter. Once melted add the apples and spices and cook, coverred 3-5 minutes. Then add the brown sugar cover, and cook for another 4-5 minutes or until the apples are soft. Remove from heat.
Pour the batter over the apples. Place in the oven and cook for 15-20 minutes or until the pancake is done and browned.
Serve with powdered sugar or maple syrup.

Homemade Granola Bars
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup honey
1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
2 cups quick cooking oats (not rolled oats)
1 cup crispy rice cereal
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup walnuts, finely chopped (I pulsed it a few times in the food processor)
4 tbsp. mini chocolate chips
  1. Lightly grease a baking sheet, set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, stir oats, rice cereal, and walnuts together, set aside.
  3. In a medium saucepot, melt the butter, honey, and brown sugar together until it comes to a bubble. Reduce the heat then cook for 2 minutes more.
  4. Add vanilla to the saucepot and stir.
  5. Pour the mixture over the dry ingredients and mix together until just moistened.
  6. Pour onto prepared baking sheet and press out to about 3/4 inch thick – if your sheet is too big, you can press them all to one half of the baking sheet to make them thicker. Sprinkle with mini chocolate chips and press them down lightly. Let cool on countertop until room temperature or for 2 hours, then cut into bars.

1 ounce The Tyrconnell Single Malt Irish Whiskey
1 ounce cherry brandy
1/2 ounce Aperol
About 1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
