Our first video will help us swing into fall with apple pancakes! Follow along with our video tutorial and recipe below.

Apple Pancakes:

1 c flour

2 T brown sugar

2 t baking powder

1/2 t salt

1 c milk

2 T melted butter

1 egg

Whisk or sift the dry ingredients together in a bowl. In another bowl, mix the wet ingredients until well incorporated. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until just mixed. If using boxed pancake mix, prepare as instructed on box with the addition of 1/4 t cinnamon. 

Peel and core an apple and slice into 1/4-inch slices. If preparing the apple ahead of time, cover with water or sprinkle with lemon juice to prevent browning. Pat dry on a paper towel if necessary. Melt 1 T of butter in a skillet on medium heat. Dip the apple slices into the pancake batter and place into skillet. Cook on the first side for 1-2 minutes, until the bottom is browned and air bubbles on the top of the pancake start to pop. Flip over and cook an additional minute. Apple pancakes can be topped with butter and syrup, or 1/4 c of powdered sugar mixed with 1/4 t of cinnamon can be sifted on top.
