Silver-Dollar Pancake Sundaes with Chocolate Hazelnut Sauce

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons unsalted butter, melted, plus more for skillet
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 1/4 cups Everyday Baking Mix (http://www.marthastewart.com/262860/everyday-baking-mix), spooned and leveled
  • 1/3 cup store-bought chocolate hazelnut spread
  • 1/2 cup pistachio or vanilla ice cream

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together butter, egg, and 2/3 cup milk. Add baking mix; whisk just until moistened (do not overmix; a few small lumps are fine).
  2. Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Place a baking sheet in oven to warm. Heat a large nonstick skillet or griddle over medium; very lightly butter surface. Drop batter by 2 tablespoonfuls onto skillet; cook until surface of pancakes have some bubbles and a few have burst, 1 to 2 minutes. With a thin spatula, flip pancakes, and cook until browned on the underside, 1 to 2 minutes more.
  3. Transfer pancakes to baking sheet in oven; cover loosely with aluminum foil. Continue to make pancakes with remaining batter, adding more butter to skillet as necessary (you should have a total of about 12 pancakes).
  4. In a small saucepan, combine chocolate hazelnut spread with remaining 1/3 cup milk. Bring to a simmer over medium-low; whisk until smooth. Serve pancakes topped with chocolate hazelnut sauce and ice cream.

Cook’s Note

Transfer cooked pancakes to a baking sheet, and keep them in a warm oven until the chocolate hazelnut sauce is ready.

Applesauce Muffins

Yields: 18 Muffins

Ingredients

    • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 3/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
    • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
    • 8 ounces (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
    • 1 cup granulated sugar
    • 1 1/2 cups packed light-brown sugar
    • 4 large eggs
    • 1 1/2 cups store-bought applesauce
    • 1 cup toasted pecans, chopped
    • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, room temperature

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a standard 12-cup muffin tin and a 6-cup tin with paper liners. Sift flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, and cloves together into a medium bowl. Set aside.
  2. Put 8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, the granulated sugar, and 1/2 cup brown sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Cream on medium speed until smooth, about 3 minutes. Mix in eggs, one at a time. On low speed, mix in applesauce and then flour mixture. Stir in nuts by hand.
  3. Divide batter among muffin cups, filling each about three-quarters full. Bake until a cake tester inserted in centers comes out clean, 18 to 20 minutes. Let cool completely in tins on a wire rack.
  4. Meanwhile, in the clean bowl of electric mixer, mix cream cheese with remaining 8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter and 1 cup brown sugar on medium speed until smooth. Spread cream-cheese frosting on muffins.
