What a great start to Sunday. These turned out to be very tasty and moist. They are made with sweet apples that cook into the pancakes beautifully. You don’t need to get out the machinery the make this recipe either. The small amount of apple is easily hang grated right into dry ingredients and if you don’t have an electric griddle a lightly oiled skillet will work perfectly. Pancakes were made in skillets long before the electric griddles came on the scene after all.
