Pumpkin Pancakes with Spiced Apples!
I love fall and I love everything pumpkin. When I saw this recipe I knew I had to make it but I wondered if I would. The recipe calls for a bunch ingredients and it looked time consuming. However, this morning I decided it was time to make these pumpkin pancakes. Truth be told, while there is a ton of ingredients most are spices and this meal was very quick to whip up. My house smelled amazing and I kind of felt like a gourmet cook when this meal came together on the plate. It is pretty looking, huh? Anyways, if your looking for a morning treat reminds you of fall this is the breakfast for you!
- 1 1/2 Cup Buttermilk Pancake Mix
- 1 tsp. Cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. Clove
- 1/2 tsp. All Spice
- 1 Egg
- 1 Cup Milk
- 1 Cup Pumpkin Puree
- 3 Tbs Melted Butter
- 4 Medium Apples Peeled, Cored, Small Chopped (about 2 cups)
- 1 Small Lemon Juiced (about 1/4 Cup)
- 1 Tbs Butter, Melted
1 Tbs Flour
- 1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. Cloves
- 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
- 1/2 Cup Water
1. Start by prepping your Apples. Peel and dice into 1″ cubes, and drizzle each apple after cubing with about 1 Tbs. lemon juice. Using about 1/4 cup of lemon juice for all 4 apples.
2. Melt 1 Tbs. butter in the microwave, whisk 1 Tbs. flour into the butter and throw in a medium-sized skillet over medium heat. Toss in your apples.
3. Coat apples in Cinnamon, Cloves, All Spice, and Brown Sugar, and toss thoroughly allowing the butter and flour to melt and combine with the spices and sugar evenly over the apples. Add the 1/2 cup of water, stir, and cover. Allow to slowly simmer and cook while you prepare and bake your pancakes, stir occasionally. (cook about 20 minutes)
4. For your pancakes add all of the pancake ingredients minus the melted butter and stir until just incorporated. Then add your melted butter, stir, and let the batter sit for a couple minutes while you heat your griddle to about 350 or pan to medium heat.
5. Use a small dab of butter to coat your cooking surface. Then give your pancake batter a quick stir and ladle about 1/4 cup of batter into a circle on your cook top. Allow to cook until the edges begin to be lightly brown (note* you may not see your typical bubbles because this is a thicker batter). Flip pancake and allow to cook for a couple more minutes. I cooked each 4″ pancake for approx 5 minutes because it is a thicker batter and you don’t want it to be doughy in the middle. Try testing 1 pancake first to get the appropriate cook time.
6. Once your pancakes are done top with apples and enjoy!
