The Distance: Alexandria Applesauce Pancakes

The arrival of Aaron and the discovery of his surveillance mission has rattled the Group. They learn he is a scout and he reveals the existence of a nearby Safe Zone complete with giant steel walls.

Aaron also discloses the location of his RV; and the Group is able to bring back a generous stash of canned goods. In a further effort to prove the existence of the Safe Zone, Aaron produces a jar or fresh, homemade applesauce. Rick is unconvinced so he forces Aaron to eat a spoonful before allowing Judith to partake.

While the Group seems eager to find the Safe Zone, Rick is immediately suspicious. Michonne finally talks Rick into seeking out the shelter for Judith and Carl's sake. Rick relents at last, and the relief of the Group is evident. Using the newly acquired pantry staples, the Group could finally have a feast for breakfast.

Applesauce Pancakes would make good use of Aaron's treasure and provide a real treat for Judith. Although Rick critiqued Lori's disastrous, homemade pancakes, any baking mix would work beautifully with the applesauce.

Make these hearty pancakes for your Group and revel in the knowledge that you make better pancakes than Lori Grimes.

And when the dead rise; take applesauce from strangers.

Applesauce Pancakes

2 cups Bisquick or other brand baking mix
1 1/4 cup water
1/2 to 3/4 cup applesauce (applesauce will replace eggs)

Optional: 1 Tbsp. Butter Buds and 1 tsp. Ground Cinnamon

Maple Syrup or extra applesauce for serving

In a medium bowl, combine baking mix, water, applesauce and optional ingredients just until blended. Heat skillet (nonstick is best but cast iron will work) over medium-high heat or medium-hot campfire coals until hot. Pour batter (with a 1/4 cup measure) into skillet and cook until bubbles form on surface.

Using a spatula, flip pancakes over and cook until underside is golden. Serve with extra applesauce and maple syrup.
