Applesauce Pancakes

Ingredients (Makes 8)
Time: 30 minutes

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (see suggestions)

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • 3/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 2 eggs, at room temperature

  • 1 cup applesauce

  • 1 cup buttermilk, warmed
    No buttermilk? Just add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice to a measuring cup. Then fill the remainder with milk. Let stand 5 minutes.

    In a large bowl, sift or mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.

    In a smaller bowl, lightly mix together the eggs, applesauce, and warmed buttermilk. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour in the applesauce mixture. Stir just until everything is moistened, taking care not to overmix the batter (lumps are okay). Set aside for ten minutes.

    Use a lightly greased griddle or frying pan over medium heat. Pour about 1/4 cup pancake batter for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot with your favorite toppings.

    Follow these directions then experiment with your own ingredients, using our tips and techniques to make your very own pancake recipe from scratch.
    Make these applesauce pancakes even better (for you) by substituting the all purpose flour for a whole grain flour. Whole wheat flour is an obvious substitute. Worried about compromising flavor and texture? Don't be! There are many types of whole wheat flours that are sweeter and lighter. Hard white wheat flour creates similar results as all white but is much better for you. There are other choices, too, like kamut flour, spelt flour, oat flour, and teff flour. These are all healthier alternatives. So ENJOY!
