Apple Cider Pancakes

Apple Cider Pancakes

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

Note: These pancakes are light and fluffy, lightly sweetened.  For a heartier texture, you can use half all-purpose flour and half whole wheat flour.

In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients.  Add the wet ingredients and whisk until well combined.  Let the batter rest for about 10 minutes.

Preheat a griddle to 300 F.  Spray with non-stick spray, or grease with butter.  Measure out one-third of a cup of batter for each pancake.  Cook until browned underneath and set, and bubbles are rising to the surface, then carefully flip and cook the other side.  Keep warm in a 200-degree oven while you finish cooking the pancakes.

Yields about 12 pancakes
