Velvet Vanilla Bean




  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup homemade applesauce topping (special ingredients)

Apple Sauce Topping

  • 5-6 pounds apples, peeled & cored
  • ¾ cup water
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ – 1 cup brown sugar


  1. Peel and core apples. Roughly chop into 1-inch pieces.
  2. Place prepared apples into a large stock pot along with water, cinnamon, vanilla and salt. Bring apples to a boil and reduce to simmer.
  3. As the apples cook down, the mixture will begin to naturally thicken. Using the backside of a wooden spoon, mash the apples every few minutes to help the reduction and thickening process.
  4. After the applesauce is almost to the stage of serving, check for sweetness. Stir in ½ – 1 cup brown sugar, based on sweetness preference.
  5. Cook for 3-5 minutes more and set aside to prepare sundae.
  6. In medium bowl, sift together flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  7. In large bowl, mix together egg, applesauce and milk.
  8. Slowly combine the dry ingredients into the wet mixture. Let batter sit for 3-5 minutes.
  9. Heat skillet or griddle and spoon about ¼ batter for each pancake. Cook on each side until golden brown in color.
  10. Top with Velvet Vanilla Bean ice cream and homemade applesauce topping.
