For this month's Sourdough Surprises we focused on Pancakes! YUM! Because its now September and the beginning of fall and back to school, I was feeling apple pies like no others! I decided to incorporate diced apples, vanilla extract, pumpkin pie spice and toasted chopped pecans into my favorite waffle batter and OH MY GOSH I freaking looooove how they turned out. Also, please forgive the lack of pictures for this post. As it turns out, getting down on the floor of your porch to snap a few photos isn't as easy with a 9 month baby belly attached to you, and it was kind of hard to get any good angles. Add to the fact that it was raining and I was hungry and really wanted to eat these waffles, I wasn't really in the mood to spend forever taking pictures. So there you have it. Did you know I take all my pictures on the floor of my back step? Haha
