Apple and Oatmeal Pancakes
These hearty apple and oatmeal buttermilk pancakes are complemented perfectly with maple syrup.
1 1/4 cups buttermilk
2/3 cup quick-cooking oats
1 large egg, beaten lightly
2 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar
2/3 cup grated, peeled apple
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Maple syrup as an accompaniment
- In a bowl whisk together 1 cup of the buttermilk and oats. Set aside for about 15 minutes.
- In a large bowl whisk together the egg, brown sugar and apple. Stir in the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, oil, the oat mixture and the remaining 1/4 cup buttermilk and mixing well.
- Preheat a greased griddle over moderate heat. When hot, ladle scant 1/4 cup batter for each pancake. Pancakes are ready to turn when bubbles appear on top and the sides appear "dry". Continue cooking until the bottoms are golden.
- Serve pancakes with maple syrup.
