Cheesy Apple Spice Pancakes

SONY DSCWhat better a way to spend a sick day than catching up on blogging! I’m comfortably plopped on the couch watching the food network with my buddy the tissue box:-) It’s far too beautiful out to be under the weather but why not make the most of it! This recipe I’m about to share is a perfect fall breakfast that my family loves.

Ingredients: (pancakes)

3 cups Flour

3 tbsp sugar

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

3 cups buttermilk

3/4 cups milk

3 eggs

1/2 tsp cinnamon

 

Ingredients for Apple filler:

4 apples, diced (I used 2 granny smith and 2 gala)

2 tbsp soft butter

3 tbsp flour

1/2 cup sugar

1.5 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1 tsp nutmeg

2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp ground cloves

 

Directions:

Heat your skillet with the butter. Saute the diced apples until slightly browned, this will also soften them. Set aside when done. Mix all your pancake ingredients together in a large mixing bowl with a pour spout.Set aside. Next you need to make the apple mixture.  Mix the flour, sugar, and spices together. Add the sauteed apples and cheddar cheese and mix together well. Add this mixture to your pancake batter and stir together well.

In the same skillet you used to saute the apples, add some vegetable oil, heat up if it has cooled down and pour your first batch of pancakes. When they start to bubble on the top and brown on the edges it’s time to flip them! Cook until browned and cooked through. Repeat until all the batter is used, this makes a big batch of pancakes!

Like I do with all my pancakes and french toast, pre-heat the oven to 170 degrees ahead of time. When the first batch of pancakes come off the skillet, put them on a baking pan, turn off the oven and place them in the warm oven. Do this as each batch comes off the skillet so that all the pancakes stay warm.

Serve these pancakes with syrup! As you can see in our photo, we sometimes cheat with our syrup. I’m really low on my VT maple syrup so I’ve been using lite bottled syrup. Real syrup is always better, but this works too. My kids prefer, sniff sniff, the bottled syrup, especially butter syrup. I can’t wait to restock my syrup supply on our next visit north!
