Paper Bag Town, complete with preschool and diner, among other favorite landmarks, as well as the addition of several dollhouse toys, a community piano, and three pools for local enjoyment. Apparently the sun is shining in PB Town.
And on to this most-awesome, and equally most-easy, Puffy Apple Oven Pancake, which Addie made for breakfast AND for dinner.
What you need:
4 Tbs sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup milk
3/4 cup flour
3/4 tsp vanilla
Stir together 2 Tbs sugar and 1/4 tsp cinnamon, and peel and chop up the apple. Stir the sugar mixture and the apple together, then dump the apples in the bottom of a greased pie dish. Bake it at 400 degrees for 5 minutes. While that's baking, mix everything else together until it is smooth an frothy. The WS recipe called for use of a blender, but I didn't feel like getting that dirty, so we just stirred the stuff like crazy, one kid at a time, until it was frothy. Pour this into the pie dish with your apples after they've baked for 5 minutes, then cook for another 25 minutes or so. The pancake should be puffy and turning brown. It should look like this:
If you want, sprinkle confectioners' sugar over the pancake. We didn't have any, so we used regular sugar. Not as pretty, but it did the trick. The girls loved it-- for breakfast AND dinner.
