I don’t normally like to post lesser-quality photos on here. You wouldn’t believe all the things I bake that are frankly just too ugly to share with the world. Today I am going to make an exception to that rule.
These pancakes kick ass. My boyfriend told me they were the best pancakes he’d ever had. That’s a lot coming from him, and even more significant that he said it so early in the morning (me: morning person. him: not so much).
They’re also the definition of autumn in a pancake: pumpkin, apple and spice! Enjoy!
Pumpkin Apple Pancakes with Caramelized Apples
Whisk the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt and spice in a large bowl.
In a small bowl, mix the egg, oil, milk, apple and pumpkin.
Stir the pumpkin mixture into the dry mixture and let stand for 5 minutes.
Melt butter in a skillet.
Add the 2 tablespoons of brown sugar and apple slices and cook, stirring occasionally until apples are soft and slightly golden, about 8 minutes.
Add the maple syrup, and turn the heat down to low to keep warm until the pancakes are finished.
Scoop 1/3 cup of batter onto a griddle or oiled frying pan on medium heat.
Flip the pancakes when bubbles appear, about 2 minutes, an cook for another minute or two on the other side, until pancakes are fluffy.
Top with the apples and syrup and enjoy!
I finally tore up my garden in order to get it ready for some fall planting. I didn’t yield much this year. Actually it was incredibly disappointing. However, I did get to dig up all my little potatoes, and I was completely satisfied with all my sweet little purple and gold spuds. Maybe I’ll make a frittata?
