Pancakes, a seemingly American staple, can be created, served, and absolutely enjoyed in more than one way I've combined recipes, incorporated two types of flour, and added a kick of cinnamon to create a fluffy delight - one sure to please even the pickiest pancake eater. Top with apples sauteed in butter and cinnamon, and sprinkle crushed, honey-roasted pecans on top. And, of course, add your choice of an excellent maple syrup... pairs well with a side of fresh, seasonal fruit and a sparkling mimosa. Perfect way to appreciate a Sunday!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the wet and dry ingredients separately. Melt the butter. Add the wet and dry together, with most of the melted butter, and stir until just combined. Make apple topping (below.).
  2. Preheat a large skillet or saute' pan to medium-low. Add butter or use spray canola oil. I find I prefer to use spray, but that's just me! Using a 1/3 cup or ladle, scoop out the batter and pour onto your prepared pan. Let the batter move as it will - no reason to try and make it into a circle. Gravity and science is amazing! When bubbles appear around the inside and edges, it's most likely ready to flip. Use a sturdy spatula, large enough for the pancake, and flip. Don't you dare think of pressing it down with the spatula. Remove that thought, and pretend you didn't think it! Let it rise/brown, and then move to an oven-safe plate. Keep warm in an oven set to 200°F Continue until all batter is used. Makes 10-12.
  3. For the apple toppings:.
  4. Preheat a saute' pan to medium-high, and add in the butter - swirling it around the pan to cover. Toss the apples with cinnamon, and add to the heated pan. Saute' until tender - time will depend on the thickness. Mine took about 5 minutes or so. **A note: You can toss the apples with a little flour and lemon juice prior to sauteing, as this certainly creates a great texture and light sauce**.
  5. Crush pecans, if you like, and sprinkle on top of pancakes. Add apples, maple syrup and serve.
