Fall Is Callllingggg

Hey Fancakes,

Fall is my favorite time of year not due in small part to my Jen’s fabulous holiday bundt cake (recipe here). In fact, I love it soooo much I thought I’d try to get it in pancake form (for some reason cake in pancake form makes me feel slightly less guilty about eating a massive ton of it?). Oh, also I went apple picking and I’ve basically been trying to cook with as much apple as possible…

These pancakes came out pretty pretty AWESOME. They’re like glorious bits fall fritters and I basically am trying to rush through writing this post so I can go eat more…Basically every fall flavor is in these pancakes: apples, pumpkin, pecans, cranberries, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, it’s the season in a scrumptious bite. I gobbled the first few plain but a touch of maple syrup or powdered sugar would bring these to the next level…actually, they might get so good that you explode, so just be ready for that.
