Spiced Apple Pancakes

Instructions 1. Mix flour, baking powder, 1 tsp cinnamon, sugar and salt in a medium bowl. Melt 2 tbsps of butter. In a large bowl, whisk to combine egg yolk, vanilla, milk and melted butter. Gently fold dry ingredients into wet ingredients until just combined, then fold in 1 ½ cups of chopped apple. 2. In another medium bowl, using a hand mixer, beat egg white until stiff peaks form. Fold egg white into batter gently with a rubber spatula until just combined. 3. Make apple topping: in a small saucepan over medium heat, melt remaining 2 tbsps butter. Add remaining apples, brown sugar, remaining ½ tsp cinnamon, and a ¼ cup water. Cook, stirring occasionally, until apples have softened and mixture is jammy, 10 to 15 minutes. 4. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt 1 tbsp butter. Pour about ¼ cup pancake batter into pan. When little bubbles appear, about 1 to 2 minutes, flip and continue cooking until both sides are lightly golden. Repeat with remaining batter, adding more butter to pan as needed. Serve pancakes topped with apple mixture. This recipe is brought to you by Delish.
