Heavenly Buttery Cinnamon Apple Pancakes

cinnamon apple pancakesGrowing up, there was a place in the North Chicago suburbs my mom always wanted to go to that was famed for its amazing apple pancake. We're not talkin' a regular ol' flapjack. This was a serious pancake, replete with perfectly tender, cinnamon and sugar-coated apples slices and topped with rich roasted walnuts. Definitely not an every morning kind of breakfast, but one of those once in a blue moon treats you'll never forget.

Still, why shouldn't we be able to make something like that heavenly pancake at home? From the sweet cooking blog I Adore Food, here's a recipe for buttery cinnamon apple pancakes. (Is your mouth watering yet?!)
