Apple Spice Pancakes on Pancake Sunday


Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and pancakes are at the top of my breakfast food favorite list.  Since pancakes are the ultimate vessel for butter and syrup I try to limit myself to having them once a week as a treat....hence Pancake Sunday!

Fruit and pancakes are pals and make a great thing that much better.  I still have a few apples in winter storage so I thought some Apple Spice Pancakes were in order this morning. 


Apple Spice Pancakes

3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
2 eggs, beaten
2 tbsp. sugar
2 1/2 milk (I used 1%)
5 tbsp. melted butter
2-3 apples coarsely chopped

Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  In separate bowl mix: eggs, milk, butter, and sugar.  Combine two mixtures, plus pumpkin pie spice.  Fold in chopped apples.  

On a hot non stick skillet ladle pancake batter.  It should take about 2 to 2 1/2 minutes per side for them to be done.

Then enjoy!

  2. Those pancakes are making me huuuuuuungry. Great post the other day about you predicament on what to label you crops as. That is a tough one to tackle. Its all about advertising. I think the guy who sprays his maters down with toxic gick should be the one filling out those mountains of paperwork explaining what he sprayed and why. Transitional org is good cause it is still flashy and gives u an opp to tell your unique story. Beyond org is my fav and what most folks in permaculture community loosely refer to their efforts as. Biodynamic is a little out there, but we could all stand to take at least half a step in their direction. Steiner had some awesome ideas. Its a hard decision to make, but whatever you decide to call your crops we will keep coming back for more. Salatin for president and Robson for VP!

    1. Thank you! To mention me and Salatin in the same sentence...you give me way to much credit! Something to aspire to! Farmers that spray do actually have to keep detailed records of the spray activity and get audited by the DEP just to make sure they are doing so responsibly. I'm excited to take a portion of the farm in a new direction. It's a big change but it's exciting. And about the peas...we direct seed them in the field. Half of the potatoes are here and the rhubarb is on the way so hopefully we'll be getting in the field soon!
