Apple Pancakes with Caramelized Nuts 

img_0421It’s a lazy Sunday morning and I wanted to enjoy it with some sweet and fluffy pancakes. They are a delicious treat for me and my family and they make our weekend mornings more special. It’s like a self made extra celebration!

This time I got inspired from Kitchen Stories Fluffy Apple Pancakes and I’m so happy to share it with you guys, adding a little Egita’s twist 😊
