Apple Griddlecakes

Since I'm a working girl, the weekends have always been my time to make breakfast shine. Out of all my many cookbooks (thanks to my hubby) the one cookbook I've always used for pancakes and waffles is my Fanny Farmer. I still can't remember how I got this cookbook but it has always been the one I've used.

The recipe for griddlecakes is yummy and the variations you can apply keep it interesting.

1/2-3/4 cup Milk
2 tbsp melted butter
1 egg
1 cup white flour
2tsp baking powder
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
Peel 1 tart juicy apple, cut it in thin slices and stir in. Optional: toss apple slices with 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Beat milk, butter and egg lightly in a mixing bowl. Mix the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt and add them all at once to the first mixture, stirring just enough to dampen the flour.  Lightly butter or grease a griddle or frying pan and set over moderate heat until a few drops of cold water spinkled on the pan form rapidly moving globules.  If you wish small pancakes drop about 2 tbsp of the batter onto the pan or pour about 1/4 cup from a measureing cup if larger pancakes are desired. Bake until cakes are full of bubbles on the top and undersides are lightly browned.
