Tina used some leftover oatmeal to make Bittman’s oatmeal pancake recipe. We had dates rather than apricots, but otherwise I think she stuck pretty close to the original version. The cakes were delicious and remind me that we should use cardamom more often.
The fall brings brisk weather, beautiful leaves and crunchy APPLES. We made this last night as a quick dessert for dinner with friends and had the leftovers today with some oatmeal for breakfast.
This got thrown together at the last minute, so please bear with the haphazard directions. You can’t go wrong with a crumble!
Preheat your oven to 350F. Chop up two apples (if you have 3, go for it), sprinkle lemon juice over the pieces and throw in a pie dish. Mix together about a 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour, a pinch of salt, a generous handful of brown sugar, a teaspoon or two of honey (or sugar) and a whole bunch of oats – probably 3/4 cup. Take 4 (or more) tablespoons of butter and massage into the flour mixture until everything is crumbly. Put on top of apples, add some maple syrup or other syrup on top of the whole mess and bake at 350F for about 40-45 minutes. Serve warm!
