How To Make Apple Cinnamon Pancakes
Full instructions are included in the recipe below, but here’s a quick overview:
Step One: Peel & Chop your apple(s). Next cook them in a small saucepan on medium low heat with your butter, brown sugar and cinnamon for 8-10 min. Set aside.
Step Two: Combine your flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl.
Step Three: Mix together your beaten egg, melted butter, buttermilk and vanilla in a separate bowl. Then add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and gently stir together until just combined. Making sure not to over mix your batter.
Step Four: Fold your applesauce into the batter and set your batter to the side.
Step Five: Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat and coat with a little butter or coconut oil. Scoop 1/3 cup of pancake batter and pour into a heated skillet to form small to medium size pancakes. Cook a few minutes on each side. Flip once the edges start to puff up and the bottoms are golden brown.
Step Six: Serve with your cooked apples and warm maple syrup. Yum!!!
Recipe Tips For The Perfect Pancakes
- Use buttermilk. Buttermilk gives pancakes its fluffy texture. So when possible use buttermilk. You can make your own by mixing 1 cup of milk and 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice or vinegar. I prefer the lemon juice.
- Don’t overmix the batter. Gently combine the wet and dry ingredients, but be sure not to overmix. Overmixing will make your pancakes slightly rubbery and not as fluffy.
- Control your temperature. Cooking your pancakes on medium to medium-low heat will make sure they cook all the way through and also give them a golden brown color. If your stove heat is too high, you may burn the pancakes before they’ve had a chance to cook all the way through.
