This is a delayed post. We made these for Pancake Tuesday (Shrove Tuesday . . . Fat Tuesday) - whatever you call it . . . it was awhile ago!
We had some apples which were going a bit soft so we thought apple pancakes would be in order. The recipe was a bit odd - I don't think I've seen a pancake recipe include sour cream before - but the results were wonderful. The nice thing about pancakes for dinner is they come together easily and quickly after a crazy day of work.
NOTE: we used whole wheat flour.
Apple Cinnamon Buttermilk Pancakes
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 -3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 large eggs, beaten
1 1⁄2 cups buttermilk
1⁄2 cup sour cream
1⁄4 cup butter or 1⁄4 cup margarine, melted
1 large apple, peeled, cored and grated
In a large bowl, mix together the baking soda, flour, baking powder, brown sugar, salt and cinnamon.
In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, buttermilk, sour cream and melted butter; add to the flour mixture and stir JUST until the flour is moistened.
Stir in the grated apple.
Drop a scant 1/4 cup of batter onto a hot lightly greased griddle.
Cook, turning once until golden brown.
