Fried Apple Pancakes
Yield: about 6-8 pancakes
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (or ½ cup whole wheat pastry flour and ½ white)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 Tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 large tart apples, cut into whole slices.
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
For the Apples:
  1. In a large saucepan on medium-high heat melt the butter. Add the brown sugar and cinnamon and stir to combine. Add the apple slices and stir with the butter mixture to coat the apples well. Cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side, depending on thickness, until apples are soft but not fully cooked.
  2. Remove from the pan and set aside.
For the pancakes:
  1. In a large bowl, stir together the dry ingredients, add the wet ingredients and whisk to combine.
  2. Butter or spray a large skillet over medium heat. Pour out a ¼ cup measurer of batter ( don't fit too many on the pan at once as they spread when you add the apples.) Place one apple slice on each pancake. Cook until bubbles form and pancake is golden brown when you check it. Flip and repeat! Serve with warm maple syrup.
