Wondering what to do with all your apples? Here’s an awesome recipe for apple pancakes that comes together quickly and delights the taste buds! Tonight may be a perfect night for brinner!
2 small or one large apple, peeled and diced small- about 1/4” cubes
2 T white vinegar (champagne vinegar works)
2 T butter, melted
1 t vanilla extract
1 Cup flour
2 T white sugar
1 t baking powder
½ t baking soda
½ t salt
Freshly ground nutmeg, about 10 or 15 seconds grinding on a microplane
Freshly ground pepper, about 10 grinds
Combine milk and vinegar in a medium bowl. Set aside. Combine the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl- flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, black pepper and nutmeg. Whisk the egg, butter, and vanilla into your milk mixture. Then stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until the big lumps are gone. Some small lumps are just fine. Mix in your apples. Let the mixture sit for about 10 minutes before cooking. Heat a large skillet to medium heat. Coat the pan lightly with canola oil or cooking spray. Ladle out ¼ Cup portions of your pancakes mix into the hot pan, being careful to give each cake its own space. Allow bubbles to form and flip each pancake when you see the bubbles pop and start becoming hollow. Cook for another minute or so on the second side, until it becomes golden brown. You can keep pancakes warm in a 200◦ oven, if you like.
Serve with real maple syrup and your choice of breakfast meat. (Clearly bacon was our choice.) Crispy potatoes aren’t a bad addition either!
Happy cooking and eating to you!
