As long as there is pancake batter in the world, we will keep coming up with ideas on how to flavor them. These apple butter pancakes are the PERFECT excuse to slow down on a Sunday morning and enjoy what nature has to offer.
Grab yourself some fresh apple butter from your local farmers market and add some to your pancake batter. We promise – you won’t regret it. The flavor of the apple butter infuses throughout the pancake turning an ordinary pancake instantly into Fall.
We recommend making one of two and tasting them as we have found a little extra cinnamon and/or nutmeg never hurt!Print
