Cinnamon Apple Pie Pancakes with Vanilla Maple Syrup

Yields8 ServingsPrep Time10 minsCook Time10 minsTotal Time20 mins

Pancake Ingredients
 1 cup all-purpose flour
 2 tbsp light brown sugar, packed
 1 tsp baking powder
 2 tsp ground cinnamon
 ½ tsp ground nutmeg
 ½ tsp ground clove
  tsp salt
 1 cup whole milk
 1 Egg
 1 tbsp unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
 1 tsp vanilla extract
 1 cup grated apple (about 1 medium apple)
 butter or vegetable oil for skillet
Vanilla Maple Syrup Ingredients
 ½ cup cup maple syrup, warmed gently
 1 tsp vanilla extract or the scrapings of 1 vanilla bean

In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients.


In a measuring cup or small bowl, measure out the milk. Add the remaining wet ingredients and beat until combined.


All at once, add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and mix until just combined. The batter should have some small to medium lumps; don’t overmix or try to stir them smooth.


Gently fold in the grated apple.


Preheat your skillet over medium heat and brush with 1 1/2 teaspoons of butter or 1 teaspoon vegetable oil.


Using a 1/4-cup measure, scoop batter onto warm skillet. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes until small bubbles form on the surface of the pancakes, and then flip.


Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook on the opposite side for about 1 minute, or until golden brown. (My pancakes were slightly larger than 1/4-cup of batter each, and I yielded 7 rather than 8; and they took slightly longer to cook than the recipe indicates).


Transfer cooked pancakes to a baking sheet and place in a preheated 200F oven to keep warm.


Repeat the process with the remaining batter, adding more butter or oil to the skilled when needed. Serve immediately.


Make the Vanilla Maple Syrup


Stir together the syrup, vanilla, and serve over pancakes. Optionally, serve with Vanilla Maple Butter.
