Heavenly Buttery Cinnamon Apple Pancakes

Posted by Maressa Brown on June 6, 2012 

cinnamon apple pancakesGrowing up, there was a place in the North Chicago suburbs my mom always wanted to go to that was famed for its amazing apple pancake. We're not talkin' a regular ol' flapjack. This was a serious pancake, replete with perfectly tender, cinnamon and sugar-coated apples slices and topped with rich roasted walnuts. Definitely not an every morning kind of breakfast, but one of those once in a blue moon treats you'll never forget.

Still, why shouldn't we be able to make something like that heavenly pancake at home? From the sweet cooking blog I Adore Food, here's a recipe for buttery cinnamon apple pancakes. (Is your mouth watering yet?!)

Buttery Cinnamon Apple Pancakes from iadorefood.com

Ingredients:

  • 4 medium apples, (granny smith or lobo)
  • 5 tablespoon butter
  • 5 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1 1/4 cup milk

 

Directions:

  1. Peel apples and slice them in 1/8 of an inch thick slices. (Use harder apples like lobo or granny smith.)
  2. In a saucepan, melt butter and brown sugar. Add the apples and the cinnamon and cook on medium low heat until the apple have soften, without letting them get mushy. Put aside.
  3. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg, and melted butter; mix until smooth.
  4. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.
  5. You can roast some chopped walnuts and sprinkle pancakes with them, as well as some good maple syrup.

We don't make pancakes. We usually do French toast.
