It’s apple time at my house and our tree is loaded with apples, leaving me to scramble for things to do with them. This morning it dawned on me to add apples to our favorite buttermilk pancake recipe. The result was, THE BOMB, according to my teenage son!
Oh, and by the way, my first photos failed so I had to take more and Wesley had already left for school…Oh my, did I just eat a second plate of pancakes in the interest of not wasting food??? So much for that lecture on moderation..
Here’s the recipe:
• 2 cups all-purpose flour ( I use 1 cup 9-grain flour and 1 cup regular flour) King Arthur has great 9-grain!
• 2 ½ t baking soda
• 1 t baking soda
• ¾ t salt
• 2 T sugar
• 1 t ground cinnamon
• 2 large eggs
• 2 cups buttermilk*
• ¼ cup vegetable oil
• 1 large apple diced (don’t peel)
• Syrup and whipped cream of course
Combine the first 6 ingredients and stir well. Combine the eggs, buttermilk, and oil in a bowl and stir. Add the chopped apples directly into the wet ingredients and stir some more. Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture, stirring until just until the dry ingredients are moistened. Cook slowly on a hot, greased griddle.
