Tea ~ Caramel Apple
Have you ever used a Vita-Mix? It’s the most amazing blender/food processor ever! They use it to make blended drinks and smoothies at coffee shops and restaurants. It heats up pureed soups while it’s on, it turns wheat berries into flour, it grinds coffee, you can put all your ingredients into it to make guacamole…only halving a tomato, no need to chop it! I love it!
I tried making my own flour for the first time since getting one in April, and I didn’t realize how easy it would be! I may just do this regularly. All-purpose flour tends to bleach out important nutrients like zinc and magnesium, which I’m pretty sure I have been deficient in and has been causing some health issues for me the last few months/years. And even “whole wheat flour” could be caramel colored to make it look more healthy, the key word is “grain” if you are looking for a flour that has not lost much of it’s nutritional value, as in “whole grain wheat flour.”
Hubby & I got up a little early this morning before church to make this Dutch Apple Baby Pancake for breakfast together. See below for the recipe or skip below for my quick summary of it (based on the photo at the top of this post).
Wheat berries turned into flour, sugar turned into to powdered sugar (I did not know that was how powdered sugar was made! Just stick it into the vita-mix!), sauteed apples in butter, cinnamon, sugar & nutmeg, blended pancake batter mixed in the vita-mix & poured over the top of the apples top and bake. Garnish with powdered sugar & cinnamon. DELISH!
This might be a new signature breakfast/dessert dish in the Amidon house. Taking it to our Bible Study/Gospel Community right now along with a big carafe of Caramel Apple Rooibos Tea. I’m sure it will be a hit!
