We visited an apple orchard this week and Jack was thoughtful enough to grab a tart little bag of Pristine apples for me. They are delicious on their own but I wanted to make something with them since they had such a distinct taste. These are easy, taste like autumn, and were a nice change from our ordinary go-to pancake recipe!


1 cup flour (I did half white, half wheat to be a tad healthier)
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg (optional)
1/2 teaspoon ground clove (optional)
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup whole milk
1 large egg
1 Tablespoon butter, melted and cooled slightly
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup grated apple (cored, peeling optional)

Sift together dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, combine milk, egg, butter, and vanilla. Add wet and dry together and stir until just combined–do not overmix. Gently fold in shredded apple. On a warm skillet, pour about 1/4 to 1/2 cup batter (I spritzed my pan with olive oil beforehand to prevent sticking) and cook for a minute or two. When bubbles begin to appear, flip and cook on the other side for an additional 30 to 60 seconds, or until done. Serve immediately.
