Apple Harvest Pancakes

Apple Harvest Pancakes This tasty breakfast treat came about when I decided to modify the Bisquick pancake recipe my mom had traditionally used when I was growing up with a few special additions.

2 cups Bisquick mix
1/3 cup brown sugar*
2 eggs
1/2 cup applesauce
1/2 cup milk**
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
dash of nutmeg
1 apple, diced

Mix all ingredients except the apple in a bowl and stir until blended. Stir in the apple.

A couple of pancake-making tips for anyone unfamiliar with the procedure: Heat a griddle on medium-high; it’ll be ready to use when water sizzles when you splatter it on the surface. Use ~1/4 cup of batter per pancake and don’t try to flip the pancakes until the edges have curled up. Bubbles may or may not form at the edges; they’re also a good signal that it’s getting close to time to flip.

These pancakes are tasty by themselves or served with applesauce or maple syrup.

* You may want more or less brown sugar depending upon the sweetness of your applesauce.
** I grew up with thick pancakes like those in the photo, but if you like your pancakes thinner, feel free to add up to 1/2 cup milk more.
