Can we make a batch and freeze it for future use?
Yes that should be just fine. Be sure to separate each cake with a layer of parchment paper before placing them in an airtight container or freezer bag so they don’t stick together. We recommend heating them up on a griddle or warming them in the oven until they’re crispy again. Let us know how it goes!
I’ve made this so many times and it’s sooooo good. I add guac/avocados and hot sauce on top.
This is excellent! There’s plenty left over to re-heat and enjoy.
Really good, our batch yielded about 14 pancakes. We liked it with just sour cream and cilantro. Thank you for a great recipe, the first we tried from the cookbook, looking forward to try more.
What is the purpose of the apple sauce in this recipe – is it to sweeten, manage consistency, something else? I’d like to try this but the apple sauce is a slightly odd inclusion to me. I’m willing to try it but would like to understand what it brings to the recipe. Thanks.
You won’t taste the applesauce at all in the end.
Hiya! I am pretty sure it’s a replacement for the traditional egg. You can substitute eggs in many ways, one way is with apple sauce. Pretty sure that’s why he used apple sauce…to hold these cakes together.
