Adapted from A.P.P.L.E. (Apple Publicity Promotion Ladies Effort), published in "Sebastopol Gravenstein Apples: Sweet & Savory Recipes."
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
In a large bowl
using a whisk, beat together the butter, powdered sugar and cinnamon until blended. Cover and chill until needed.
Pancakes and assembly
2 medium apples, peeled and cored
1 cup (4.25 ounces) flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup milk
2 teaspoons melted butter or oil
1. Cut the apples
into thin slices, then cut each slice into one-half-inch lengths.
2. In a large bowl,
whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. In a small bowl, beat together the egg, milk and melted butter or oil. Pour the liquids into the dry ingredients and stir until smooth, then stir in the apple pieces.
3. Heat a griddle
over medium-high heat until hot. Lightly grease the griddle and spoon about one-half cup of batter onto the griddle, spreading it into a 4-inch round. Cook until the bottom is browned, then flip and cook until the other side is browned and the pancake is cooked through. This makes about 6 to 8 pancakes, depending on size and thickness. Serve with the cinnamon butter.
