Hello there– Do you ever get a certain food on your mind and can’t stop thinking about it until you sit down to a plateful? Seems like I was thinking about pancakes all last week and finally when Sunday lunch hit, I made up a big pile of there sweet things. Actually they’re not too sweet– just the sweetness from the apple and a bit of brown sugar. With a couple strips of bacon and a mug of tea, they’re my kind of Sunday afternoon indulgence. Hope you like them too…
APPLE CINNAMON WALNUT PANCAKES
1 large apple (used Granny Smith)
1 cup flour
2 tab. brown sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1 cup milk
2 tab. canola oil
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
Peel and core the apple. Grate it into coarse shreds. Set aside
Mix together the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Then stir in the milk egg, oil and vanilla. Finally fold in the grated apple and walnuts.
Pour the batter, with a 1/3 cup measuring cup, onto a hot griddle that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Cook on medium heat flipping to brown both sides. Makes about 10 medium size pancakes.
Of course, there’s the part about adding butter and maple syrup as soon as they hit the plate. Enjoy!
