Cinnamon Pancakes with Apples and Bacon

I'm getting a little bored with bacon, eggs and toast every Sunday morning, so today I wanted to try something different. Here's what I've come up with...

Pancake Batter:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon granulated suger
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
In a medium sized bowl mix the egg, milk and vegetable oil with a whisk. Using a flour sifter, slowly mix the dry ingredients, whisking as you go to avoid lumps. Pour about 1/4 cups of batter for each pancake into a hot, oiled pan. Turn when the edges start to get golden brown and bubbles start to appear throughout the batter.

Apple bacon topping: (My family is crazy and I'm the only one who wants the topping. If your family is not nuts, use more ingredients for a larger yield.)

  • 1 large apple, peeled, cored and diced
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
Melt the butter in a pan over medium heat, then add brown sugar and apples. Saute until soft, about  five minutes.

Then add crumbled bacon.

Serve pancakes hot, with the apple topping and maybe some maple syrup (The real stuff!!). Also, mimosas are a great compliment to this dish! :) These are VERY rich, but so yummy! Enjoy!

*For vegetarian, just eliminate the bacon. It's still yummy!
