Hostess Gift Idea - Spiced Apple Pancake Mix


By Laura Stanton

I make this indulgent, yet healthy, dish to satisfy my yearning for a languorous Sunday breakfast. If your winter Sunday morning includes a date with your favorite old movies, fleecy pajamas, and a steaming mug of coffee -- this is your recipe.

This mix also makes a thoughtful hostess gift for all the parties that fill up our weekends this time of year. I pack up a single recipe of dry ingredients in a Mason jar, tie a recipe card around it with festive ribbon, and include a jar of my homemade organic apple sauce or the pure New Hampshire maple syrup that my Dad bottles every spring. A wholesome, easy-to-prepare breakfast is a welcome respite from post-party clean up.

Enjoy!
