Pancakes for Shrove Tuesday

By sheer coincidence, I made these wonderful Multi-grain Apple Cinnamon Buttermilk Pancakes, just in time for Shrove Tuesday! Don't know what it is? Read here. I just learned myself.

Jake and Hubs ranted and raved over these, proclaiming them the best pancakes I've ever made! The original recipe is in my March 2009 issue of Canadian Living.

Apple Buttermilk Pancakes

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup multi-grain flour (I used whole wheat since I didn't have any, and couldn't bring myself to pay $11 for a small bag)
2 Tbsp sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 eggs
2 cups of buttermilk (don't sub regular milk-this gives the best flavor!)
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 apple, peeled, cored, and grated.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Set aside. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, buttermilk, and butter. Pour into dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Squeeze the liquid out of the grated apple and fold into the batter.

Make as usual for pancakes-on a lightly oiled nonstick pan, cook over medium heat until small bubbles are breaking on the surface. Turn over and continue to cook until nicely browned.

Delicious with maple syrup!

Makes about 15.

Breakfast for...dinner?
