Maple Brown Sugar Apples for Toutons, Pancakes or Waffles. We love these on toutons at our house as a Canadian twist on a Newfoundland favourite.
Maple and Brown Sugar Apples with Toutons – a Canadian twist on a Newfoundland favourite, just in time for Pancake Night. Call ’em Confederation toutons.
Happy Pancake Day! Here in Newfoundland, as in many places, we celebrate mardi gras, or fat Tuesday by indulging in pancakes, usually for our supper meal.
When we were children, we would eat as many as possible to collect the coins my mother cooked inside the pancakes and many an eating contest ensued among 6 kids to see who would have the most pocket money the next day.
As traditional as pancakes are on this day, I can’t help but think that other delicious Newfoundland tradition, the touton, would be just as appropriate a feast item for this long celebrated day of indulgence.
To that end I offer up this suggestion to elevate your toutons to something special to enjoy with the family today. We served these at our weekend brunch last week to rave reviews.
