Melt the Canadian butter in a saucepan or microwave and allow it to cool.

In a large bowl, combine all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.

In a separate medium bowl, beat the eggs with a fork or hand mixer, then add the Canadian buttermilk, vanilla, and the melted Canadian butter.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir just until mixed; avoid overmixing. The batter may still appear lumpy.

Core the apples using an apple corer. Cut each apple into ¼-inch thick slices maintaining the central hole.

Add Canadian butter to a griddle or a pan.

Dip each apple slice into the batter, ensuring to coat evenly.

Add the batter-dipped apple slices to the melted Canadian butter and cook until golden brown on each side.

Top your Apple Ring Pancakes with a generous serving of Canadian whipped cream and seasonal fruit!

Serve and enjoy!


If you don’t have buttermilk, you can substitute by adding 1 tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon juice per 1 cup of your favorite Canadian milk. Stir the mixture and allow it to rest for 5 minutes.
