AWESOME APPLE BUTTER PANCAKES

This is the perfect Saturday morning Fall breakfast. And it's easy, the apple butter does all the work. I buy mine from the orchard where we go apple picking or at a farm stand that sells locally produced apple butter but if want to get all Martha you can make your own!

APPLE BUTTER PANCAKES 

What you need: 

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon each: salt and baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup each: buttermilk and apple butter
1 large egg
2 tablespoons flavorless oil, such as canola or vegetable, plus extra for brushing pan
Maple syrup for drizzling

Mix dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Measure buttermilk, apple butter, egg, and oil in a 2-cup liquid measuring cup (Ingredients can be measured the night before; cover and refrigerate milk mixture).

When ready to make pancakes, heat griddle or large skillet over strong medium heat and generously brush pan with oil. Dump wet ingredients into dry ingredients all at once; whisk until just mixed, adding a little water to make batter thick, but pourable.

When water splashed on the surface confidently sizzles, pour batter, about 1/4 cup at a time, onto the griddle, making sure not to overcrowd the skillet. When pancake bottoms are brown and top surface starts to bubble, 2 to 3 minutes, flip cakes and cook until remaining side has browned, 1 to 2 minutes longer.
Serve with maple syrup.

1/2 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 cup all purpose flour 

1/2 teaspoon salt 

1/2 teaspoon baking powder 

1/4 teaspoon baking soda 

1/2 cup almond milk 

1/4 cup water 

1/2 apple butter 

1 egg 

2 tablespoons vegetable plus more for the griddle

 

Mix dry ingredients in a bowl, once well combined measure and pour your wet ingredients in. Whisk until just combined. If your batter is too thick add a little extra water.

Warm your griddle to medium high heat. Brush with vegetable oil and when your griddle is up to temperature start making pancakes! You can make silver dollar size, Avy Gravy and The Dude like to pick these up with their hands and dip into syrup...The Big Guy likes a more manly sized pancake and a fork, thank God.
