Comfort in the Fall apple

Fall is finally here!  It has been quite some time since I have posted.  I apologize to my Followers for that.  The Worley household has experienced some life changing events that has had us focusing on family.  So today is the day I return to my Blog.  I forgot how cathartic it can be as I sat outside today on the back deck and melted into my chair absorbing the warm rays of the sun.  Here in Ohio it hit about 75 degrees around lunch time.  It was beautiful, the sun shining and leaves in various colors danced across my deck as the wind blew.  Ahhhh my favorite time of year!  I looked over at my apple tree.  Leaves about gone, a couple of lone apples that didn't make it leaving me a little forlorn for the summer now gone.  So into the house to make a sweet concoction to savor that wonderfully spicy season we all love so well!  Here we go everyone!  Bring on the forks and's time for some pancakes!

Apple Fritter Pancakes

3 eggs
1 cup flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
pinch of salt
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp brown sugar
2tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp melted butter
1tbsp wheat germ (optional)
cooking oil for frying pan

2 medium size apples ( I used one Honey Crisp and one Granny Smith)
  (skin and slice thinly)
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp flour

Core, skin and slice your apples into a separate bowl.  Sprinkle with spices and flour.  Lightly toss and set aside.

For your pancakes: In a bowl beat eggs adding in other wet ingredients except cooking oil.  Add sugar, flour, baking powder, salt and wheat germ mixing well to ensure no lumps.  Add in your apple mixture.  Heat your frying pan on medium heat coating bottom of pan with cooking oil.  Just coat the bottom.  Spoon in batter to the size of pancake you want turning over when you see the edges turning crispy golden.  Serve hot with syrup or powdered sugar.
