Written By Jennifer Danter Edibles / Food / Recipes Oct 25, 2021 It’s a Pancake Day! SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter PinterestThat crisp edge in the fall air stirs up a craving for comfort that sometimes only a stack of hot pancakes can deliver. So get your cast-iron pan ready and don’t skimp on the maple-glazed apples either. Harvest Corn Pancakes A little cornmeal adds a pleasing crunch to this classic buttermilk pancake base. Once the stacks are ready, serve with mascarpone cheese instead of butter. Mascarpone has a sweet, buttery, nutty flavour with a luscious creamy texture that is better than butter!Makes 18 pancakes. 2 cups all-purpose flour1 cup yellow cornmeal¼ cup granulated sugar2 tsp baking powder2 tsp baking soda1 tsp kosher salt2½ cups buttermilk2 large eggs¼ cup + 2 Tbsp butter, meltedOil for frying Toppings: Maple-Glazed Apples (recipe follows), mascarpone cheese, maple syrup (try some Vancouver Island big-leaf maple syrup) In a large bowl, whisk together flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a large measuring cup, whisk together buttermilk, eggs, and melted butter. Pour over flour mixture; gently stir just until combined. Some lumps are good!Heat a large cast-iron or non-stick skillet over medium-high heat; lightly brush with oil. Pour batter, a scant ¼ cup at a time, into pan; spread slightly to form pancakes. Reduce heat to medium; adjust as needed during cooking.Cook until edges start to brown and bubbles appear on top, about 3 min. Flip and cook until bottoms are golden brown, about 1 min. Place on a baking sheet and keep warm in a 250ºF oven.To serve, place pancakes on warm plates. Top with Maple-Glazed Apples (recipe follows) and a dollop of mascarpone. Serve with maple syrup. Tip Use a neutral oil for frying, such as avocado or vegetable oil. It results in crispy-edged pancakes and won’t burn like butter will.

In a medium skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add apples and sprinkle with cinnamon. Cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, 4-6 min. Stir in syrup and salt.
