Hey friends– Sunday lunch I was happily flipping up these pancakes when it suddenly came to me that I was suppose to be meeting a young couple at church in about 20 minutes!! Rats! I’m sure you’ve never been so forgetful– So I pulled Larry away from the ball game to flip, while I raced off. In spite of all that, the pancakes came out just fine. You might like to try them…
YOGURT PANCAKES WITH MAPLE APPLES
1 cup flour
2 tab. cornmeal
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup buttermilk*
1 cup unflavored yogurt
2 tab. canola oil
Stir together the flour, cornmeal, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Then add in the buttermilk, yogurt, egg and oil. Mix til it’s all blended and pour on to a medium hot griddle sprayed with cooking spray. They do expand (!) so don’t put them too, too close together.
2 tab. butter
3 apples, peeled, cored and sliced into chunks
1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice**
1/4 cup maple syrup (plus more to serve with the pancakes!)
*In place of buttermilk (that I almost never have on hand), I used milk with a couple tablespoons of cider vinegar.
**No pumpkin pie spice? Cinnamon works just fine.
The buttermilk and yogurt make these pancakes nice and tangy against the sweetness of the maple syrup and apples. And thank you Bigarels for the huge jug of syrup mailed all the way from upstate New York. We’re still enjoying it! So thankful.
