Apple Pancakes – Guest Post from Chitra

Apple pancakes5

Its time for a breakfast recipe, today we have Chitra from Chitra Healthy Kitchen.  Since we both started blogging in almost the same time, Chitra and her space is very familiar to me ever since the beginning. Chitra is a good friend of mine, she always stops by and leave her encouraging words. Chitra’s recipes perfectly fits her blog title. I admire the way she tells the healthy aspects of ingredients in her intro for each post.  Knowing Chitra is a mom I appoached her for toddler friendly recipe and she instantly agreed to give me one. I was happy when I saw pancake recipe from C,  my son loves pancake and I have a new way to give him apple.

Over to Chitra,

When V (Vidya) approached me for ‘toddler recipe’ was over whelmed. I tried to give my best as per possible for guest post. I delayed to share my recipe however V waited patiently and allowed me to take my own time.

V is my blogger friend and been interacting with her since I started my blogging journey. She encouraged me with her feedback for each of my recipe and can’t thank enough for that. Look forward to her support in future too.

Traditionally modern food, name of the blog itself is so attractive. So one can expect all such traditional recipes with all possible twists. I got to know lot many traditional recipes from her home town.

I wish Vidya a great success in every step of her journey personally and professionally.

Thanks V for the oppourtunity. Since kids love apple and chocolate thought of combining them to make this recipe.


Apple ring pancakes drizzled with chocolate


For an adorable twist on the usual pancake recipe, whip up these delicious apple ring pancakes. Slice fresh apples — any variety will work.  The taste? Well it’s a bit donut-ty (yes really, try it!), it’s soft and pillowy. They cook just like regular pancakes, and the apples soften slightly, so when you take your first bite, the apple is slightly crisp but oh so warm and juicy. There’s the perfect amount of sweetness.

These were drizzled with chocolate syrup as kids love chocolates and sliced almonds, pistachio. These are also great for a dessert if you wanted to serve them with ice cream.
