Fat Tuesday Buttermilk Pancakes with Roasted Apples Recipe


Pancakes are the traditional food for Fat Tuesday – so here is my favorite buttermilk pancake recipe.  I try to always have a quart of buttermilk in the refrigerator so we can make buttermilk pancakes from scratch.  They taste so much better than pancakes made from a mix!  I don’t like the taste of syrup and prefer to serve fruit on my pancakes.  In the summer it is easy to just slice berries on them, but in the winter this recipe for roasted apples with cinnamon works well.

Roasted Apples
  • 3 apples
  • ½ T. lemon juice
  • 1 t. cinnamon
  • 1 t. butter
  • 1 T. brown sugar
  • 2 T. walnuts
  1. Preheat the oven to 375. Slice and core the apples and sprinkle with the lemon juice and cinnamon. Put in a baking dish and add the butter.
  2. Roast for 15 minutes, stirring once. Then add the sugar and walnuts and roast for another 5 minutes. Serve on pancakes

Buttermilk Pancakes
  • 1¼ c. flour
  • 2 T. sugar
  • 1 t. baking powder
  • ½ t. baking soda
  • ½ t. salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1⅓ c. buttermilk
  • 1 T. cooking oil
  1. Preheat a griddle on the stove. Mix the dry ingredients – flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt – together in one bowl. Mix the wet ingredients – egg, buttermilk, oil – in another bowl.
  2. Combine wet and dry ingredients until blended but still lumpy. Cook ¼ c at a time on hot griddle.


This makes enough for the kids, if the whole family is eating I’d double the recipe.  Check out more recipes at Tasty Tuesday Parade of Foods at Balancing Beauty and Bedlam.
