Oatmeal Pancakes with Lemon-Apple Topping

Lucky you!  You get a sneak peek at one of my upcoming recipes on the Recipe Shoebox.  These wholesome pancakes were yummy in and of themselves, but topped with the lemon-apple topping they were out-of-this-world.  Certainly perfect for a cold winter morning (like today)!

The ingredients:

1-1/2 cups hot milk
3/4 cup old-fashioned oats
egg, beaten
2 Tbs. vegetable oil
2 Tbs. molasses
1 cup all-purpose flour
1-1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
egg whites

2 Tbs. butter
5 medium tart apples, peeled and sliced (I used Granny Smith)
1 Tbs. lemon juice
1 tsp. grated lemon peel
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tbs. cornstarch
1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg

Directions:  In a large bowl, combine milk and oats; let stand for 5 minutes.  Stir in egg, oil, and molasses.  Combine dry ingredients; stir into oat mixture just until moistened.

Beat egg whites until soft peaks form; fold gently into batter.
 Set aside.  

For apple topping, heat butter in a skillet until foamy.  Add apples, lemon juice, and peel; cook, uncovered, for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Combine sugar, cornstarch, and nutmeg; add to apple mixture and cook 2 minutes longer.

While apple topping is cooking, cook oatcakes by pouring batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a hot greased griddle.  Cook until bubbles form; turn and cook until browned on other side.  Serve warm with hot apple topping.  
 Serve warm over oatmeal pancakes.  Makes 6-8 servings.
