What's Cookin'? guest Patty Millay loves fall.  And she's getting a jump start on the season with this week's What's Cookin'? recipe. Patty is serving up a delicious breakfast.  How do Apple Pancakes sound?

From Patty:

OH MY GOODNESS!  This makes everything better in my life!  If you could smell my kitchen right now, you'd faint with the scent of fall goodness!!!

This is a twist from an old German recipe that looked more like a cobbler than a pancake.  I took a twist and omitted the cloves....and it's DELISH!!!

2 cups pancake mix (use your favorite or make from scratch) prepared as directed
1 stick butter (halved into pats)
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
6 red delicious apples (peeled and diced)
powdered sugar
warm maple syrup

Melt 1/2 stick butter, add peeled diced apples, 3/4 cup brown sugar and 3/4 cups white sugar 1tsp cinnamon and 1/4 tsp nutmeg.  Fry apples for approximately 15 minutes or until golden and tender.  Remove apples and set aside to cool.

Mix pancake batter as directed, add 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1/4 tsp nutmeg to the batter and mix well.

Add 1 pat of butter to a skillet on medium heat. Add 1/2 cup seasoned pancake batter, top with 1/4 cup sliced apple mixture.  Flip pancake when bubbles begin to appear.  When the pancake is firm in the center, remove and set aside to cool.

You  may serve these as you with but my money is on powdered sugar and syrup!  Honey butter would also be amazing or even vanilla maple syrup!  Frankly, I had one with nothing on it and it was delicious!

Put a little fruit and a whole lot of YUM into your fall!  They will love you for the effort!
