Oregon has approximately 6200 acres of apple orchards in three major regions: the Willamette Valley, the Mid-Columbia Valley and eastern Oregon’s Milton-Freewater area. The most popular varieties of apple grown in Oregon are Fuji and Gala but in the Hood River Valley there are orchardists growing over 75 varieties.
“Come stay where fine wines are born!” and some pretty tasty breakfasts, too, at Yamhill Vineyards Bed and Breakfast
Apple Berry Delight
Preparation time: 45 minutes
Preheat oven to 350°
1 cup + 2 Tablespoons Krustez Pancake Mix or mix your own to equal
1 ½ cups batter
¾ cup+2 Tablespoons Water
2 Tablespoons Chopped Hazelnuts (optional)
2 Tablespoons Butter melted in 9 inch pie plate
½ – 1 Apple peeled, cored & sliced thin, Granny Smith or any cooking apple
⅓ Cup Blackberries, Cranberries, Blueberries or Marion berries
½ Teaspoon Cinnamon
4 Tablespoons Syrup – innkeeper likes Mrs. Butterworth’s the best
Mix pancake mix, Hazelnuts and water together, will be a little lumpy. Let stand. Swirl melted butter in the pie plate so that the edges are coated. Place the thin sliced apples around the bottom of the pie plate. Add the berries of choice. Sprinkle the cinnamon evenly over the apples and berries. Gently pour the syrup over the apples and berries. Spoon the pancake batter gently over the apples and berries. Do not pour as this will disturb the apple arrangement.
BAKE: 30-35 minutes at 350° degrees
Loosen sides of pancake when done; put a plate on top and turn over, like an upside down cake. Serve with whipped cream and candied Hazelnuts. Extra syrup is optional. Enjoy.
