  1. In a large saucepan, cook apples in butter over medium heat for 6-8 minutes or until tender. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, combine the cheese, milk, egg yolks, lemon peel, juice and remaining sugar. Stir into dry ingredients just until combined. In a small bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form; fold into batter.
  3. Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a greased hot griddle; turn when bubbles form on top. Cook until the second side is golden brown. Serve with apples and maple syrup.

I love pancakes and these were very special. So much flavour and the texture was perfect, light and tender, just the way I love them. The pancakes were big, thick and fluffy, served with delicious spiced apples. Made exactly as written. Thanks so much for sharing Boomie, I will be making this again and again. :)

Well I have to say I am not the best pancake maker out but we were very happy with these. There was detour in their making though, I started the prep on Sunday (serving day) was just about to whip up the egg whites and oops family emergency everything in the fridge, not made that night. Next day whipped up egg white folded into batter mix and made in a heart shape mold (well it was Valentines Day), I got 7 heart shape pancakes and one thin round one out of the mix (we only ate 5 (the other 3 the DS and DM will have tomorrow night with a fresh fruit salad). For the apple (which I cooked on the previous day and reheated in the microwave I only used 2 tablespoons of sugar for dietary purposes and would for us cut this back to a teaspoon (we like our apples tarty - used granny smith - not sweet) and would also double the amount of apple, for really it was only enough to serve over 4 pancakes). The thing that surprised me was that in the batter the lemon taste was quite strong but only just came through on the pancake just right for us when served with a slightly tarty apple. Thank you Boomette, made for Please Review My Recipe.
