These delicious pancakes are light and moist; the texture is a cross between a crepe and a pancake. Avoid over mixing the batter (it's okay if there are lumps) to ensure that the pancakes will be airy.

How To Make buttermilk pancakes with maple syrup apples

  • 1
    For maple syrup apples: Melt butter in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add apples and 1 tablespoon maple syrup; saute until apples are tender, about 5 minutes. Mix in remaining 1/2 cup maple syrup and cinnamon.
  • 2
    For pancakes: Combine first 6 ingredients in large bowl; whisk to blend. Whisk buttermilk, yogurt, and egg in medium bowl to blend; add to dry ingredients and stir until just blended but still lumpy. Gently mix in 1 1/2 tablespoons melted butter.
  • 3
    Heat griddle or large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Spread thin coating of butter over griddle and let melt. Working in batches, drop batter by 1/3 cupfuls onto griddle, spacing apart. Cook pancakes until brown on bottom and bubbles form on top, about 3 minutes. Turn pancakes over and cook until bottoms are brown and pancakes are barely firm to touch. Transfer to plates. Repeat with remaining batter, adding more butter to griddle as needed.
