Tips & Notes

Try adding your favorite kind of nuts, like walnuts or pecans, to the pancake batter.



  1. For pancakes, combine flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and nutmeg in mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, mix baking soda, egg, butter, vanilla and milk. Combine both mixtures stirring only until blended.
  2. Fold in grated apple. Bake on hot, lightly greased griddle. When batter is full of holes, turn to brown on other side. Turn pancakes only once while cooking.
  3. For sauce, melt butter in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add apples and saute until just brown, about 2 to 3 minutes. 
  4. Add maple and corn syrup to apples and stir gently. Let cook another 2 to 3 minutes or until mixture thickens. Serve with pancakes.
