Everybody at my house really enjoys these apple nutmeg pancakes. Served warm and topped with butter and maple syrup, they are always gone in a flash. 

I used some of the freshly picked apples from my trees, since I have a ton of apples right now. These pancakes are a favorite of mine in the fall but they are mouth-watering any time of the year.

The Secret Ingredient

The real secret to making these pancakes really great is using freshly grated nutmeg. You could use pre-ground nutmeg if that is all you have. However, because nutmeg quickly begins to loose it’s flavor after being ground, I recommend using whole nutmeg. Your pancakes will be so much better if you freshly grate it yourself.

If you don’t have whole nutmeg in your pantry then buy it here. Trust me. It is really worth it!

Apple Nutmeg Pancakes

To make these sweet and fluffy pancakes just mix your flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together. Then grate your nutmeg on a fine toothed grater or grind it up in a spice grinder and add into the dry ingredients.

Next, add your olive oil, egg, and milk. Mix gently until most of the lumps are gone. 

Peel and remove the core from your apples and chop them into very small chunks. Mix the diced apples into your mixture.

Preheat a skillet or griddle to medium heat. Add oil to pan then spread around. 

Scoop batter onto hot pan using a 1/4 cup measuring cup. Spread batter out just a little so that the apple chunks are not stacked. You will want your pancake batter to be about 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick. If it is thicker than that it will not cook very well in the middle.

Cook it for about 2 minutes or until bubbles start to form in the pancake and the edges change from shiny to dull. Then flip and cook for about 1 more minute. Pancakes should be golden brown on both sides.

Add more oil to your pan as needed and repeat with the remaining batter.

Serve with butter and your favorite syrup or other pancake topping.
