Spiced Pumpkin Apple Pancakes

There are so many things about fall that are depressing to me.Putting  away summer clothes and shorter days are at the top of my list of things I hate . Now , lets talk about things I love..all fall foods. The aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg are just intoxicating to me. Let’s face it I love bonfires and hoodies but it is all about the food for me. Give me pumpkin spice, baked apples , cozy warm drinks and I am in heaven. These Spiced Pumpkin Apple Pancakes have everything about fall I love. They are full of spices , pumpkin , apples and are the perfect way to start your day.

As much as I love everything pumpkin , I just adore baking with apples. Another one of my favorite recipes for  fall is Apple Bread with Cream Cheese Filling , it is great for breakfast or just to snack on. In that bread I mentioned the apples are in chunks . For these pancakes I decided to grate the apples so they would be super fine and the results were perfect. These are my new favorite pancakes!!

To start off making these super yummy fall nuggets grate your apple of choice, I used my favorite apple a Honeycrisp. Heat the butter up in a small skillet and add the apples, sugar and cinnamon. Let the apple mixture simmer for about 5 minutes or until the apples are tender. While the apples are cooking mix all of the dry ingredients in a medium mixing bowl.

In a large mixing bowl whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, sugar, pumpkin , sugar and vanilla. Add the flour mixture to the pumpkin mixture a little at a time mixing well as you go. Once all of the dry ingredients are incorporated add water a little at a time until you like the consistency, I used about 3/4 cup.  Now fold in the cooled apples.

Fall food is everything. The amount of dishes you can make during this season is incredible. And pumpkin apple pancakes are a great example. Not only they are great to start a day with but they look so nice. Can’t wait to try!

So much yum! I had to laugh about “putting away the summer clothes.” We don’t put them away in south Texas! LOL. I do love all the warm, fragrant spices of fall, and your pancakes are calling my name!

I kinda like seeing the days getting shorter. I’m a bit of a weirdo but there’s something about longer nights that I can’t help but find cozy 😀 In any case I will agree with you that fall foods and flavours are the best – they are indeed better than days getting shorter. Putting these pancakes on my list!
