Serves 4-6 | Prep Time 20 minutes | Cook Time 30 minutes

Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
3 cups buttermilk, room temperature
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus more for the griddle
2 cups shredded zucchini
2 tablespoons butter
3-4 medium sized tart apples, peeled, cored and sliced
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons heavy cream


Heat a griddle on medium-high. Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and brown sugar in a medium bowl. In another medium bowl, add eggs, buttermilk, and 4 tablespoons butter; whisk to combine. Mix in zucchini. Add to flour mixture and stir with a wooden spoon until just combined. Batter should have small to medium lumps.


Brush a little melted butter on the griddle. Pour the pancake batter by ¼ cups onto the griddle, keeping the pools of batter 2 inches apart. When pancakes have bubbles on top and are slightly dry around edges, about 2 1/2 minutes, flip over. Cook until golden on bottom, about 1 minute.


For the apples, melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the apples and saute until the apples are slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle the brown sugar and cinnamon over the apples, add the cream, and cook until the liquid is reduced and slightly thickened, about 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat. Immediately serve with the pancakes.

Notes

This month for our blogger Improv Challenge the ingredients were zucchini and brown sugar. Doesn't that beg for a great pancake recipe?
