There’s nothing better than to start your day with warm and fluffy pancakes. These pancakes are a real special treat at our house on weekend mornings. Making pancakes from scratch is much easier than many people think. This basic recipe is super simple, but adding apples to it makes the pancakes super irresistible. Of course, you can skip the apples, but I suggest you give it a try, and I promise that you’ll be amazed. This pancake mix is also perfect for making waffles. It’s time to give up store-bought mixes and fall in love with this quick and easy recipe.
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 3 eggs
- 1 tablespoon olive oil or melted butter + more for fying
- 3 apples, diced
In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients: flour, baking powder and sugar. In a separate bowl, whisk together wet ingredients: buttermilk, eggs, oil.
Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture, and blend together. Add diced apples, and fold them in with the spatula. I use a food chopper, like this one for dicing apples. It’s also a real time saver when it comes to making Potato Salad (Olivye), or Potato Salad with Beets (Vinigret).
Heat the skillet over medium-high heat, grease with some oil. Make sure the skillet is hot by sprinkling a few drops of water, if water bounces, the skillet is hot enough. Pour batter 1/4 cup onto hot skillet, making a few pancakes at a time.
Cook until pancakes have bubbles on top and starting to get dry around edges, flip over, cook for about 1 more minute or until underside is golden.
I usually serve pancakes with syrup. Kids like to top them with berries.
