Thursday Recipe - Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

Pancakes came up on a discussion board recently over at Bestsellerbound, apple cinnamon ones in particular. So, because authors need to feed their brains, here's the recipe. And if you've got a few minutes, please check out BestsellerBound - Lots of fun authors and readers and a fun community with great discussions on just about everything.

I serve these for dinner many days because they're fast, easy, and filling. Who says pancakes are only for breakfast? Not me. *cheesy grin*

Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

1 c. white flour
1 c. whole wheat flour
2 T. brown sugar
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. nutmeg
1/2 t. ginger
2 eggs
1 c. orange juice
2 T. oil
1 c. finely chopped apple, leave the peel on

Mix all the dry ingredients together (flour through ginger on the list). Add the rest. Stir just until blended. If too thick, add a bit more orange juice.

Cook on a medium hot griddle for about 3 minutes per side. Serve with sliced bananas, hot blueberry sauce, and whipped topping.

Hot Blueberry Sauce

2 c. frozen blueberries
1/4 c. sugar
1/4 t. cinnamon
2 T. cornstarch
1/2 c. water

Mix blueberries, sugar, cinnamon, and cornstarch in a medium saucepan. Add water. Stir well. Cook over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil, stir constantly or it will burn. Boil and stir for one minute. It should be quite thick. Serve warm.
