In anticipation of my Sweet Potato Coconut Oatmeal Pancakes which I will be posting later this week, I wanted to first bring you my favorite syrup to smother them with:
I have a thing for smothering food (as previously discussed in my Smothered Buffalo Chicken Burritos with Creamy Lime Ranch Sauce), and a thing for smothering breakfast foods in fruit syrup. My thinking is because syrup is mostly sugar, you might as well make your own (because it is SO EASY) and while your’re at it, you might as well throw in some fruit because this seemingly simple addition instantly elevates your ordinary syrup into an extraordinary sweet, syrupy, fruit infused bath that makes absolutely everything it glides across, pools on or smothers better! (phew! that was a long sentence! I applaud if you are still with me!)
Like my Brown Sugar Carrot Cake Crepes with Cream Cheese Filling and Blueberry Sauce (a must try if you want to eat the best crepes of your life!);
Like my Pineapple Coconut Macadamia Nut Waffles with Pineapple Coconut Syrup (insane! I am going to dedicate a post strictly to this syrup!);
And like my Angel Food Cake French Toast with Cream Cheese and Strawberry Syrup (can’t even get over this decadent deliciousness!). Now in the chance that you are going to click on and check out the aforementioned French toast, I have say my peace.
The Angel Food Cake French Toast with Cream Cheese and Strawberry Syrup was my second (maybe third) post ever in the beginning of February this year (2014), just 3 months ago, and I can hardly believe how much I have learned in those short months about photography and specifically photographing food. It has been so rewarding to be able to learn and improve though trial and error. I really wanted pictures that reflected just how delicious the Angel Food Cake French Toast is, so I re-shot (which more importantly means, I got to re-eat) the Angel Food Cake French Toast last week. I will probably post the new pics next week, so stay tuned. But in the meantime, if you want one last glance at my learning curve, or more importantly, if you want to eat this insane French Toast, click here.
I am so grateful we can all learn and grow through hard work!
To make this seemingly indulgent delight, simply simmer apples, cinnamon, a little butter, sugar, and water (mixed with cornstarch). In ten short minutes (or ten long minutes depending just how hungry you are), you have fresh, Cinnamon Apple Syrup!
Its absolutely delightful on pancakes, waffles, French toast, oatmeal and even ice cream. I created the syrup, however, specifically for my Sweet Potato Coconut Oatmeal Pancakes which I will be posting this week – you don’t want to miss them!
