Here we go again with Pancake Day. I've posted several pancake recipes here, here, here and here. All those pancakes are very good and sometimes it's hard to pick a recipe as a favourite. I guess they are all my favourite!
This is a nice variation on a plain pancake. I often add chopped apples to a plain pancake batter instead of blueberries. A little sugar and spice make these Apple Pancakes a tasty treat for Pancake Day or any day of the week.
1 cup flour
2½ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1½ tablespoons sugar
½ teaspoon cinnamon
⅛ teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup milk
3 tablespoons oil or melted butter
1 beaten egg
½ cup finely chopped apples (1 medium to large apple)
Oil for frying
Sift or mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Combine the milk, oil and eggs together and add to the flour mixture. Mix until smooth. Stir in the apples. Heat a griddle or frying pan over medium low heat. Spread a little oil on hot pan and fry pancakes about ¼ cup for each. Turn when tops have bubbles appearing on the surface and the edges are turning golden brown.
Serve with maple or pancake syrup and a pat of butter if you wish.
Makes about 12 pancakes.
Sift or mix the dry ingredients together. Beat the egg and add the milk and oil. Chop the apples. Combine the wet and dry ingredients together and mix until smooth. A few lumps won't matter. Mix in the chopped apples.
Spoon the pancake batter by the quarter cup onto a hot oiled frying pan or griddle.
You will make about 12 pancakes.
The recipe is easily doubled if you have a crowd for breakfast or supper.
Serve the Apple Pancakes with a pat of butter and a good drizzle of maple or pancake syrup.
Sweet and spicy Apple Pancakes!
