Pan Mini Cake
What exactly is a pan mini cake? It is a cross between a muffin and a pancake actually. This apple breakfast recipe is unique. Best of all it is poppable and perfect for when you in a rush in the morning.
The inspiration on these mini cakes came because of the pan Nordic Ware sent me for Apple Week. Nordic Ware sent me an Ebelskiver pan! An Ebelskiver pan is a filled pancake pan.
Rodelle vanilla also sent me a bottle of their superb vanilla for recipe creation for apple week. I knew that the Rodelle vanilla was perfect to use for this pan mini cake idea I had in mind.
Pancakes or Muffins
Is this apple recipe pancakes or muffins? Actually, this breakfast apple recipe is both! These little cakes are fried like a pancake, but have the texture like a muffin!
I work in healthcare, so I am always on the go. So I need a quick poppable breakfast. That is what I had in mind when I came up with these mini apple cakes.
