Apple Cider Pancakes
Recipe type: High Altitude Baking
  • 1 egg
  • 1½ cups apple cider
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1¾ tablespoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the egg and apple cider.
  2. While still whisking, stream in the melted butter.
  3. Add the flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg and stir to combine.
  4. You will have a relatively thick pancake batter. If you want a thinner batter, add a little more apple cider.
  5. Preheat a skillet or griddle over medium-low heat.
  6. Melt a little butter in the skillet and add about ¼ cupfuls of batter, giving them plenty of room. I sometimes run the cup or spoon over the batter as I plop it in the skillet, much like spreading sauce on a pizza crust, to spread the batter a bit.
  7. Cook the pancakes until bubbles appear on the surface, and flip. Cook until both sides are golden.
  8. Serve warm.
  9. Makes 10-12 pancakes.
