Carolina Apple Bread & Cinnamon Apple Buttermilk Pancakes

My Kindred Spirit in North Carolina, Charity, is an AMAZING cook and even created her own TasteBook Cookbook with her family's recipes. Today, I was missing her extra, so I decided to bake a few things from her cookbook. I made her Apple Bread in a Sunflower Bundt Pan and it turned out delicious and beautiful! I used the leftover Apple Pie Filling from the can and made Apple Cinnamon Buttermilk Pancakes for our breakfast this morning. I used Charity's Buttermilk Pancake Recipe and then added the apple pie filling and a tablespoon of apple pie spice. They were Scrumptious! So good that we didn't even need syrup on them. However, I bet they would taste great with honey drizzled on top.

I encourage you to try a little Southern Baking compliments of my Carolina Gal. You won't be disappointed.

Have a truly BLESSED Sunday! You are Chosen; You are Loved; You are Beautiful!

Ephesians 1:4-6
"For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves."

Apple Bread
1½ cups oil (scanty)
2 cups sugar
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 eggs
1 teaspoon cinnamon (generous)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup apple pie filling
1 cup nuts
In a large bowl, beat together oil, sugar, and eggs. In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon, then add to sugar mixture. Stir in pie filling and nuts.

Pour batter into two greased loaf pans or a greased and floured tube or bundt pan.

Bake at 350°F for about 1 hour or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Our Favorite Buttermilk Pancakes
(Apple Cinnamon Style)
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups buttermilk
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
¼ cup butter or margarine, melted
To Make Apple Cinnamon Pancakes:
1 cup Apple Pie Filling
1 tablespoon Apple Pie Spice
Maple Syrup and additional butter to accompany pancakes (or honey)
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Whisk until blended. Beat eggs lightly in medium bowl. Add buttermilk, milk, vanilla and melted butter to eggs. Whisk until blended. To make Apple Cinnamon Pancakes, add one heaping tablespoon of apple pie spice, and about 1 cup of apple pie filling.

Preheat griddle, add buttermilk mixture to dry ingredients; mix batter just until blended. If lumps of flour are visible, that’s okay.

Pour spoonfuls of batter a few inches apart onto the hot greased griddle. Cook until small bubbles begin to form on the top and some pop, 2 to 3 minutes. Carefully turn pancakes with a flexible spatula, then cook 1 to 2 minutes more, until golden brown.
