Pancakes with Sauteed Apples

Patrick and I have really enjoyed our breakfasts throughout the month of December! We had quiet weekends here in Durham and then he was fortunate enough to have about a week and a half off around Christmas and New Year's which meant more breakfasts to savor together!

We made his favorite buttermilk waffles with fresh strawberries, baked oatmeal (recipe to come), and an apple pumpkin dutch baby. When we were in Murfreesboro Mom had a new sweet roll recipe for Christmas breakfast too!

Before we left for our holiday visits I had a goal to use what we already had on hand. Buttermilk is in the fridge fairly consistently, we had some apples leftover that family had shared with us, and lastly there was some whipped cream. Put these all together and you have everything you need for pancakes with sauteed apples!

After we had the apple pumpkin dutch baby I knew that I wanted to make something like this. For that dutch baby the sliced apples went into the batter and I didn't really like the texture of the apples.

We loosely follow a recipe similar to this for pancakes. While Patrick was in charge of the pancakes I worked on the apples! While slicing the apples I melted about 2 tablespoons of butter in a small pan on medium heat. To the melted butter I added the apples, a dash of cinnamon, and a spoonful of brown sugar and stirring occasionally. These cooked while Patrick finished the pancakes (maybe about 5-7 minutes).

To the pancakes we sprinkled a little powdered sugar, added the cinnamon apples, and topped with whipped cream.

What's your favorite topping for pancakes??

  1. This apples sound good. I like blueberries on pancakes. Mostly just use syrup, though. Remember blackberry syrup from Big Meadows? It was good.
