Pancakes With Microwave Apple Topping

For these pancakes, I used Granny Smith apples to make the topping.  They’re sweet and just a little bit tart.  Their flavor really comes out when you mix them with sugar and maple syrup.  For the finishing touch, I added a little dab of whipped cream to the top of the stack.  It was better than apple pie.

Oatmeal With Microwave Apple Topping

Just look at how homemade apple topping turns a bowl of boring oatmeal into a breakfast delight.  I like to sprinkle a Tablespoon or two of granola over the baked apples so you get a little crunch.  Of course, a dab of whipped cream works here too.

Waffle With Microwave Apple Topping

Any topping that’s good on pancakes will usually be equally awesome on a waffle or French toast.  For the waffle shown here, I drizzled just a little extra maple syrup so each dimple of the waffle had plenty of flavor.

This topping also makes a great filling for crepes.  It’s terrific on toast in place of jam.  It’s even good just on its own… with maybe a dab of whipped cream.  Is it clear yet that I like whipped cream?

This recipe is so easy and it really does turn plain breakfast fare into something special.  I hope you’ll give it a try.
