From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...When the rains here start and the leaves begin to fall, I love to make these pancakes. There is something about them that speaks to fall. I'm not particular about when I serve them and they have performed breakfast, lunch and dinner duty in my kitchen. They are easy to prepare and I always have to make a double batch to please the folks at my table. The Silver Fox loves these served with smoked or homemade sage sausage. Smoked sausage is always available in supermarkets, and truth be told, my sage sausage is awfully easy to make, so he gets one or the other every time I serve apple pancakes. I do hope you'll give this recipe a try. Here is how the pancakes are made.
Apple Walnut Pancakes...from the kitchen of One Perfect Bite
1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-1/4 cups buttermilk
1 large egg
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 medium apple, peeled and grated
1/3 cup finely chopped walnuts
1) Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl.
2) Whisk together buttermilk, egg and butter in a small bowl. Add buttermilk mixture to flour mixture stirring just until flour mixture is moistened. Gently fold in apple and walnuts.
3) Brush a nonstick griddle or large nonstick skillet with oil or spray with nonstick spray and set over medium-low heat. Using a scant 1/4 cup for each pancake, pour batter onto the griddle. Cook until bubbles begin to appear and the edges of pancakes are dry, about 2 minutes. Turn pancakes over and cook until lightly browned, about 1 to 2 minutes longer. Transfer pancakes to a plate and keep warm. Repeat with the remaining batter, making a total of 12 pancakes.
