Sometimes it’s the simple recipes that steal my heart. The ones that are so classic, so familiar, just so…..right. It’s a given that everyone loves pancakes (well, everyone who’s anyone). And if you don’t, this is your chance. For the love of breakfast!
These pancakes are derived from one of my favorite pancake recipes from a gal named Dakota Kelly.
Old Fashioned Pancakes

- 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- 1 1/4 cups milk
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp pure vanilla
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
- 4 apples peeled and cored, such as golden delicious
- 1/4 cup butter, unsalted
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
For Pancakes: In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and cinnamon. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg, vanilla and melted butter; mix until smooth.
Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.
For Apples: Slices apples and melt butter in sauce pan over medium-high heat. Add apples and saute for about 4 minutes. Add sugar and cook until they are golden brown and tender.
