Spiced Apple Yogurt Pancakes

In the late 1800s, Mormon settlers planted fruit trees in the small community of Fruita along the Fremont River. Now part of Capitol Reef National Park, the orchards are still maintained by the park service and the abundant fruit is available for picking. We stayed at the Fruita Campground and picked a few pounds of these small heirloom Red Delicious apples, which were absolutely nothing like the mealy bright red version found in grocery stores. We had some company while we picked, too!

These pancakes are perfect on a frosty fall morning.

Spiced Apple Yogurt Pancakes

2 cups flour

1 Tbs brown sugar

2 tsp baking powder

2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp ground ginger

½ tsp nutmeg

¼ tsp salt

1 cup plain yogurt

1 cup milk

¼ cup melted butter

2 large eggs

2 ½ cups coarsely grated apple (about 2 large apples, or 5 of these cute little ones)

Sift together dry ingredients. In separate bowl, mix together yogurt, milk, butter and eggs. Gradually add yogurt mixture to dry ingredients, and stir just until blended. Add apples and stir well. Working in batches, pour batter by ¼ cupfulls onto a hot buttered griddle. Cook about 2 mins per side, until golden. Serve with butter and warm honey.
