apple cinnamon pancakes


over the weekend, we kicked off our sunday morning by eating apple cinnamon pancakes in our pajamas.  the combination of apples and cinnamon usually reminds me of fall, but i'm happy to eat it any time of the year.  plus we had a bowl full of fresh apples sitting on our kitchen counter.

these pancakes are delicious.  the fluffy cinnamon pancakes have diced apples in them, and they are topped with additional sauteed apples.  of course you can't forget the maple syrup too!  yum!


apple cinnamon pancakes
prep time:
cooking time: 6 minutes
yields: 2 servings
adapted from creme de la crumb

ingredients:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
3/4 cup almond milk
1 tablespoon vinegar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 large apple

directions:
in a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and spices.  in a separate bowl stir together the milk and vinegar.  allow the milk to curdle for a few minutes.  add the oil, vanilla, and egg to the milk mixture.  whisk well.  add the wet ingredients all at once to the dry ingredients.  whisk just until combined.  peel, core, and dice the apple.  mix 3/4 of the diced apples into the pancake batter.

heat a lightly buttered griddle or frying pan on medium heat.  pour 1/4 cup of batter onto the griddle for each pancake.  cook for 3 minutes, until small bubbles begin to form.  flip the pancakes when they start to bubble, then cook for 3 minutes, until they are golden brown and cooked throughout.  heat a lightly buttered small frying pan on low heat.  saute the remaining diced apples in butter, vanilla, and cinnamon.  serve the pancakes warm, topped with the sauteed apples and maple syrup.


enjoy!
love, laurie

We must be thinking somewhat alike. I made, over the weekend, Apple cinnamon oats pancakes with the apple topping. I make the entire batter and then keep them in the refrig and heat them up in the toaster or microwave.
