This is my family's all time favorite pancake recipe. The buttermilk adds some really great flavour and you can make them a little healthier by subbing in some muti-grain or whole wheat flour if you wish. Apple makes them moist, and if you top with maple syrup they are just divine. We love to have pancakes for an easy weekend dinner or occasionally for breakfast, and you will too!
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup multi-grain or whole wheat flour
2 Tbsp sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups of buttermilk (don't sub regular milk. This gives the best flavor!)
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 apple, peeled, cored, and grated.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Set aside. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, buttermilk, and butter. Pour into dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Squeeze the liquid out of the grated apple and fold into the batter.
Make as usual for pancakes-on a lightly oiled nonstick pan, cook over medium heat until small bubbles are breaking on the surface. Turn over and continue to cook until nicely browned.
Delicious with maple syrup!
