Hello fall!!! Finally the humidity in PA is gone and we woke up to a crisp morning. The doors and windows are all open – letting in the lovely, refreshing outside air in. Running this morning was a pleasure. I was whipping up ideas in my head about what type of fun pancake would be tasty on this first crisp day… apple pie came to mind! I ran with it literally and figuratively.
3/4 cup + 1 tablespoon of whole wheat flour (I used King Arthur’s)
3/4 cup of all purpose flour (King Arthur’s)
3 tablespoons of sugar
1 tablespoon of baking powder
2 tablespoon flax seed meal
1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of apple pie spice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cup of almond milk
1/2 stick of butter, melted
1 tsp of vanilla extract
2 apples, cored, peeled and chopped
In your stand mixer, paddle attached, blend the flours, sugar, powder, flax seed, cinnamon, apple pie spice and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk milk, butter, eggs and vanilla. Then gradually add the wet mixture to the dry and blend. By hand, add the apples and mix.
In your skillet over medium flame, add a pat of butter, let melt and then ladle some batter in to the hot pan. Flip when golden brown on one side (around 2 minutes). Top with the additional mango.
