Butter-Milk Pancakes Delicious Caramel Apple Topping

Let’s just take a moment to thank God for creativity, and  butter-milk pancakes… I’m not sure there’s one person that doesn’t like a good butter-milk pancake. It’s like the best thing under ice-cream in my book. And it only gets better I tell you.

Now, pancakes from the box are one thing (that has gotten me by most days), but pancakes from scratch?! Now! we are talking. This recipe was both joy and pain. The amount of flour and milk I wasted in my feat to come up with a winning recipe, is downright shameful as I hate to waste anything! After a little math and chemistry, you read that right math! and chemistry! My two worst subjects in High School (not ashamed) I did it! If you follow this recipe step by step I promise you, you will have a terrific, delicious, perfect butter-milk pancake. The key is to not! I repeat not! over-mix.  Over-mixing is the main reason pancakes turn out flat and not fluffy, rubbery, instead of soft and melt in your mouth.

 

After composing a winning butter-milk pancake batter the fun began. The toppings! A pancake, just like ice-cream can be topped, mixed, and matched with just about anything your heart desires. My heart was desiring a caramel-apple topping. This is a dairy rich butter-milk recipe that yields a fluffy, melt in your mouth pancake. Dairy rich meaning you will be using two milks, buttermilk, and whole milk the outcome glorious.

Caramel Apple Pancakes!

Are you ready folks?!

This butter-milk pancake recipe is delicious, also quite simple! So, simple in fact kids can have a go at this one. Mixing all your dry ingredients into one bowl, and mixing all your wet ingredients into another bowl. And finally mixing them altogether it’s that easy. And the fun part is watching them bubble and brown on that hot griddle as you prepare that wonderful caramel-apple topping delicious! Now let’s make some pancakes!

Gather your ingredients, making sure your eggs and milk are room temp.

Caramel Apple Pancakes

Print Recipe
Serves: 10-12 Cooking Time: 10-15 mins

Ingredients

  • Dry Ingredients:
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 2 Tablespoons of sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • Wet ingredients:
  • 1 cup of buttermilk (*room temp)
  • 3/4 cup of milk (room temp)
  • 3 Tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs (room temp)
  • 1 egg yolk*
  • Toppings:
  • 1-2 Apples (I used Golden delicious for its sweetness, use whatever kind you like)
  • 3 Tablespoons of butter ( Unsalted)
  • 3 Tablespoons, plus more to drizzle on top Caramel (I used a quality brand caramel sauce)
  • 1 teaspoon of apple pie spice. (if you can't get a hold of that just use 1 teaspoon of cinnamon)
  • Maple Syrup

Instructions

1

Prepare your apple topping by washing, peeling and coring your apple(s) slice them into medium wedges.

2

melt butter in pan on medium high and add apples, apple pie spice, and caramel stir and simmer for 5-8 minutes.

3

While that's simmering mix all dry ingredients together with a wire whisk in a large bowl set aside.

4

Add all your wet ingredients together, making sure to beat the eggs some.

5

Now slowly whisk wet ingredients into dry ingredients, incorporate but, take care not to overmix.

6

Add about 1/4 cup of mix to hot griddle. if using griddle you can get about four pancakes on there at a time.

7

Once you see bubbles start to form and pop which takes about a minute or so, gently flip over let cook for about 2 minutes on each side.

8

At this time stack up your pancakes and add your toppings. drizzle some warm caramel over your cakes and some warm maple syrup with a dollop of butter! And your ready to dive in my friends! You will make these again and again.

Notes

* Its best to separate your egg yolk from your whites while its cold. once separated allow it to come to room temp. *Take your cold items out the fridge 20 minutes prior to mixing them together for best results. *I cannot stress enough about overmixing. Trust! me from trial and error I learned that less mixing and a few lumps will give you fluffy pancakes. Also you can totally wrap these in plastic wrap and freeze them for later use.

  • Happy yummy Saturday folks🥗
  • If ever you visit Beacon NY, you gotta stop by Beacon Falls Cafe for some of thee best fried calamari ever!
  • It’s my youngest birthday today🎈🎂 He was then 4 years old on this picture, now he’s 6! The time seems to just move so swiftly. But we’re about turn up in class with the best cupcakes ever! For the best birthday boy ever! Happy Birthday Vincent!! 🎈
  • BKT sandwich 🥪 Bacon, Kale, Tomato. Every sandwich is made better on a Brioche bun am I on point? Or should I say everything is made better with bacon! And for the love of this beautiful sandwich, turkey cannot be bacon 🥓.
  • I’m the only one in my household that loves! Tomatoes 🍅 If you’re a tomato lover like me a delicious treat for your tomatoes is to sprinkle with creole seasoning, cracked black pepper, some red pepper flakes and drizzle with olive oil. Taste so good on a sandwich the next day🍅
  • I called this my Green Queen Platter, cause of obvious reason🍃. I love when green vegetables stay green and crisp and one of the best ways to achieve that is through steaming them. .
.

These greens were seasoned to the garden gawds, don’t let the modest look fool you. A great way to wake up your veggies is using fresh herbs. A little oil or butter and pickapeppa, which is a Jamaican condiment that adds so much flavor to veggies. Also Sambal is a terrific way to add some kick into your veggies. And another thing when eating so many veggies in one day I never feel guilty about dessert😉.
  • #tbt to these pot of beans! I put my heart, soul and foot in these thangs. I thought, I would have some left over to put in the freezer. But the way they tore this pot up it didn’t go past Tuesday😂. You can check out my recipe in my highlights♥️ I’ll have a more detailed recipe soon.
  • Red Beans & Rice Monday is a tradition in New Orleans that has carried on I’m sure for centuries. I can remember my mom soaking her beans overnight, cooking them as I got ready for school. .
.

By the end of the school day I would walk home and smell red beans & rice cooking from up the block! Every kitchen on the block and around the corner were on one accord it seems, cooking the same traditional meal on a Monday. .
.

The beautiful thing about New Orleans is the smell of the food in the air, particularly in the hood. Not sure what it’s smelling like these days with all the gentrification, but I know a house that’ll always have that nostalgic smell of good New Orleans food. That will catch your nose from blocks away... Mrs. Wilhemena House on Lapeyrouse St. the heart of the 7th ward. This is my Momma’s recipe and good God if you’ve ever had her beans you already know! Watch how I prepared it on my #instastory.
  • My mind is already on Thanksgiving! I made these golden rum sweet potatoes last year and oh my!They were good. These particular yams were straight from New Orleans and I only seem to find them around the holiday season. There’s a hint of golden rum well, more than a hint 😉 and a rich brown sugar butter sauce that compliments these potatoes so well. Recipe coming soon 🍠 #tbt #theeverygirl #foody #soulfood
