Our breakfast special today was Apple Pancakes. Mmm!
1 c. all-purpose flour
1 T. granulated white sugar
1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/4 t. ground mace
2 – 4 T. melted butter (how much depends on how “sticky” or non-stick your cook surface)
1 – 1 1/2 c. low-fat buttermilk, divided
1 lg. egg
2 medium apples, peeled, cored and cut into chunks (2 c.)
2 T. fresh lemon juice
Confectioner’s sugar, yogurt, warm maple syrup, and apple slices for serving
(1) In a large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients. In a small bowl, whisk together butter, 1 c. of the buttermilk and egg. Gently stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients just until dry ingredients are absorbed. If needed, stir in more buttermilk. Batter will have small lumps.
(2) Toss apple chunks in lemon juice then fold into pancake batter.
(3) Meanwhile, preheat grill or griddle until a drop of water sizzles but does not skate across surface. Grease well with canola oil or vegetable shortening.
(4) Ladle pancake batter onto cook surface. (Makes 8 medium or 6 large pancakes.) Cook until bottom is light golden brown and bubbles appear on top of pancakes. Flip and cook on the second side until done in the middle and bottom is light golden brown. Garnish and serve immediately.
Those are almost too beautiful to eat. Almost.
Oh, no, they are definitely for eating : )
perfect picture–good enough to eat!
Thank you, Stacy. I love apple pancakes!
great photo 😀
Thank you! It can be difficult to get photos and make & serve breakfast at the same time!
Multi talented then! 🙂
Man those look good. I’ll have to try them. I wonder how it would taste with throwing in some nuts into the mixture. I’ll have to try that too. 🙂
Some finely chopped walnuts would work well. You could also just mix the nuts into the maple syrup. Enjoy! Thanks for your comment.
These look wonderful. I’ll have to add buttermilk to my grocery list… it’s not something I usually have around.
I use buttermilk quite a bit – for pancakes and for muffins.
I could use a stack of these also. 🙂
Oh, good. That’s the point : )
Mmmm indeed! Could do with some of these myself!
Thank you! I’m glad that you liked the apple pancakes post. It is difficult to stage photos when I am serving breakfast.
I’ve been enjoying your posts!
