Apple Pancakes

Based on Memphis chef Shelley Baltz's "The Best Pancakes," my version sautees the apples in butter and cider and then adds them to the batter. With or without the apples, these are my "go-to" pancakes. (If you omit the apples, also omit the cider). I have tried a hundred different pancake recipes and I always return to this one. Light and fluffy, they are quite delicious eaten by themselves without any topping. When I fixed these for a friend recently, he called them "sublime!" See if you don't agree.

These are fabulous buttermilk pancakes before the other ingredients that make them extra special. There are bits of apples every bite. When you smear the cinnamon sugar butter on top, it's almost like eating an apple pie! Quite the treat for breakfast. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
