The Classic Apple Pancake

Let’s start with the good ol’ classic. You know, the kind of pancake that grandma used to make. It’s simple, but oh, so good. Perfect for when you wanna keep things straightforward but tasty.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 apple, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Instructions:

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  2. In another bowl, combine the buttermilk, egg, and melted butter.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. (Lumps are okay, don’t overmix!)
  4. Fold in the apple slices and ground cinnamon.
  5. Heat a griddle or large skillet over medium heat and lightly grease it with butter or oil.
  6. Pour 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake onto the griddle. Cook until bubbles form on the surface, then flip and cook until golden brown. (Watch ’em closely, they can brown up fast!)
  7. Serve warm with your favorite syrup or a sprinkle of powdered sugar. Yum!

Quick tip: If you want your apple slices to be extra soft and caramelized, saut them in a bit of butter and brown sugar before adding them to the batter. Ooooh, yeah!

Tips for the Perfect Pancake

Before we wrap up, here are a few tips to ensure your pancakes turn out perfect every time:

  • Don’t overmix the batter: It’s okay if there are a few lumps. Overmixing can make the pancakes tough.
  • Use a hot griddle: Make sure your griddle is preheated properly. A drop of water should sizzle when it hits the surface.
  • Flip at the right time: Wait until bubbles form on the surface of the pancake and the edges start to look set before flipping.
  • Keep them warm: If you’re making a big batch, keep the cooked pancakes warm in a low oven (around 200F or 90C) while you finish cooking the rest.
