Apple Pancakes Recipe - The aftermath of Spring Cleaning

It all started Friday evening.

I got out of work and it was warm and Springlike and I was ready to make the changeover to spring. I started to make plans to throw open the windows and clean from top to bottom. And then go out to the garden and get everything ready for the new season...

I may have overdone it...

And while I nurse my sore arms, I leave you with this recipe for apple pancakes that can restore your strength the day after you've cleaned all your dust bunnies and done quite a bit of yardwork. The greatest part of this recipe? The maple butter...

Maple Syrup need not apply.

Now its about making my list of chores for next week...Sigh.

Apple Pancakes with Maple Syrup Butter
1 1/2 cups Self rising flour
1/2 cup confectioners sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 egg
1 cup milk or buttermilk
2 apples diced small

Maple Syrup butter
3 oz butter softened
3 tbsp maple syrup

Mix dry ingredient and create a well. Beat the egg and milk together and add to the dry ingredients along with the diced apple. In skillet (use 2 tbsp olive oil on medium meat) Add a ladle of the mixture (or less for smaller pancakes) and cook until the it starts to bubble slightly. Then flip over.

For the maple butter combine the softened butter with the maple syrup. Spread the maple butter over the pancakes after the come out of the skillet and serve warm.


  1. I used to make diced caramelized apples and add them to pancake batter. That was double yum!
