Just a quick note and a micro-recipe of sorts. A week or two ago, A Cozy Kitchen posted this recipe for “spiced apple ring pancakes.” Basically, you dip apple slices in pancake batter and then cook them like pancakes.
Adrianna made a special, apple-ring-specific batter for her recipe. I didn’t. As I was mixing up my signature banana pancakes (using buckwheat and whole wheat flours plus cornmeal, all in equal amounts), I decided at the spur of the moment to try the apple ring-dipping technique.
It worked! The result is fluffy pancake enclosing slightly softened apple: delicious, especially spread with peanut butter and drizzled with maple syrup. Make these with your pancake batter of choice. Pumping up the spices — cinnamon, nutmeg, maybe some allspice and/or cloves — will give the rings a nice fall-like flavor. Just remember that if you like your apples slightly more cooked than not, cut the rings more thinly.

Banana Pancake-Covered Apple Rings (inspired by A Cozy Kitchen; makes 4-6 apple ring pancakes)
What to do:
- Make this pancake batter, or another favorite pancake batter
- Core an apple and slice it into 1/4″ rings.
- Heat some oil in a pan over medium heat.
- Submerge each apple ring in the pancake batter, gently shake off any excess, and place the rings in the pan. Cook for 1-2 minutes on each side, then enjoy warm with peanut butter and maple syrup.
