Full-on Flavorful Power Cycling Fuel on an Apple Pancake Theme

November 1, 2017

Apple blueberry pancake topped with cinnamon and ground nuts.

You need to fuel up before you can ride on. And, man, I dig that most excellent part of the cycling life!

Last week I brought the apple blueberry pancake above to my good buds at VOmax, who I've partnered with to put out the Breitz! bright, bold & cool to wear line of cycling and running wear you see on this site and below. Adding blueberries or any fruit, dried fruit - anything you like - to an apple pancake is an easy way to improvise on the root recipe you can get, all in pictures, by clicking this link.

Checking out Raleigh electric speed bike at Cyclofest 2017 - a lot of fun!

You bet, I'm a big fan of fresh fruit pancakes, but because a pancake the size you see above is too big to eat on my own, even over the course of days, I made a variation the day after my VOmax visit using half the pancake batter along with a full load of Italian plums, which I then had for breakfast the next few days topped with yogurt, kefir, dried fruit and honey as shown in the third picture below. Great power cycling fuel!

What I call Italian Plum Pan Toss - improvised from Fresh Apple Pancake recipe.

As I mention a lot at Gotta' Eat, Can't Cook, recipes are only guides. Imagination is always your only limit, and using that imagination is at least half the fun of having at it in the kitchen!
