Fall is here, and my taste buds are hoppin' with all sorts of ideas for apple this, cinnamon that, pumpkin this, nutmeg that… All the apple recipes, including apple cinnamon buttermilk pancakes! Fall is all about the cozy side of food and home.
What could be more cozy than a stack of pancakes with a pat of butter on top, drizzled with a hearty amount of warm maple syrup, besides maybe an apple cinnamon French toast bake? Can't think of anything else, can you?
Instead of adding an egg to my normal batch of pancakes, I decided to go with applesauce to add a nice fall flavor. A dash or two of cinnamon completed this fall breakfast creation. My mouth is actually starting to water, just thinking about it.
Like butterbeer pancakes from scratch, this pancake recipe is super easy to make and perfect for a weekend breakfast. Grab the griddle and the mixing bowl, and get down to cookin' up a hearty batch of apple cinnamon flapjacks.
The nice thing about using applesauce is that unless you're making your own applesauce, you don't even have to peel or chop a thing.
