For a very long time, pancakes have been one of my favorite snacks for breakfast or for my 4 o’clock tea. My love for pancakes can be seen from my previous pancake posts which are quite a number on the website. This time round, I wanted to have pancakes but a different type of pancake. I decided to try out red velvet pancakes, since red velvet cakes, have been my favorite cakes for a long time. However, I love being experimental in the kitchen and I decided to make apple sauce and add it to the pancakes. An apple a day keeps the doctor away. The outcome was amazing. I loved every bit of the pancake. I am sure you will love it once you try it out. Without much further ado, let’s get into the kitchen and start making these amazing apple sauce pancakes.
