Apple Crisp Pancakes


Apple Crisp Pancakes

Here is a wonderful recipe that you can make with those wonderful apples that you got from Apple Holler.

Yields: 13
Streusel Topping:
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup old-fashioned or quick-cooking oats
2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons cold butter

2 cups Original Bisquick™ mix
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup peeled diced Granny Smith apple (1/4-inch)
1 cup milk
2 eggs
Toppings, If Desired:
Powdered sugar
Real maple syrup
Sweetened whipped cream

In medium bowl, mix brown sugar, flour, oats, cinnamon and nutmeg. Cut in butter using pastry blender or fork until mixture is crumbly. Set aside.
In large bowl, stir all pancake ingredients until well blended. Heat nonstick griddle to 350°F. or 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. (To test griddle, sprinkle with a few drops of water. If bubbles jump around, heat is just right.) Brush lightly with vegetable oil or spray with cooking spray before heating to help prevent streusel from sticking to griddle.
For each pancake, pour 1/4 cupful batter onto hot griddle. Sprinkle each pancake evenly with scant 2 tablesppons Streusel mixture. Cook 2 to 3 minutes or until bubbly on top and dry around edges. Turn; cook other side until light golden brown around edges about 1 minute to 1 minute 30 seconds. Scrape off griddle between batches of pancakes if necessary.
To serve, serve pancakes Streusel side up and top as desired using any of the toppings listed.
