Spiced Apple Pancakes







Hey there lovely people.... 




How was your weekend? Mine was good just to short…
Anyway, I'd like to talk about something near and dear to my Hips -Pancakes and how I could eat them all day everyday…Blueberry, banana, nutella, even peanut butter pancakes.
One of my News Year’s Resolutions was to eat better. And they say that an apple a day keeps the doctor away. Soooo.. hummm what about apples smothered in cinnamon and spices and mixed in with pancakes.. Does that work the same?…I hope so because that would keep the doctor away and make me happy!!! So my dear friends pull up a chair.. Syrups on the left…and enjoy my Spiced Apple Pancakes…



Spiced Apple Pancakes

Ingredients


2 Apples peeled and chopped (I used Granny Smith)
1 Tablespoon Apple Pie Spice
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1/4 Tablespoon of butter (or margarine) 


For Pancakes


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 1/4 cup milk
1 egg
3 tablespoons butter, melted


Directions


Melt butter in skillet over medium heat; add apples, apple pie spice, and cinnamon- Sauté for 5-10 minutes or until apples are tender. Remove from heat and set aside.
In large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter; mix until smooth. Then add apple mixture; mixing until combined.



Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.



Look at the butter melting on that bad boy.....
