Ingredients
  

For the Pancake Mix

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cane sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • To mix up:
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons oil or melted butter

For the Topping

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup pecans chopped
  • 1/2 cup cane sugar
  • 3 medium apples peeled, cored and sliced
  • 1/4 cup International Delight Southern Butter Pecan coffee creamer

Instructions
 

For the Pancake Mix

  • Have a clean, dry 32-ounce coffee creamer bottle ready.
  • Whisk or sift together the dry ingredients. Use a funnel to place the dry ingredients into the bottle. Store in a cool, dry place until ready to use.
  • To make pancakes – preheat a non-stick griddle. Whisk together milk, oil, and egg. Pour about half of the mixture into the bottle and place the lid on top and gently shake a few times. Open and add the remaining liquid. Shake vigorously for 30-60 seconds. (If there are any spots that aren’t mixing up, you can stick the end of a wooden spoon into the bottle to break it up.) The batter should be pretty smooth with a few remaining lumps. If it’s too lumpy, shake for another 30 seconds.
  • Working in batches, pour batter out onto griddle in 4-inch rounds. Let cook for a few minutes. When the edges look cooked and the top is full of bubbles, it’s time to turn them. Let cook on the other side until cooked through, a few more minutes. Repeat with remaining batter. Keep warm until ready to serve.

For the Topping

  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the butter and let it melt. Next add the pecans. Cook, stirring constantly, until the nuts are toasted and have absorbed about half of the butter. Add the sugar and let it melt, then add the apples. Cook, stirring occasionally, until apples soften and start to release their juices and the liquid becomes syrupy and thick. Add the creamer, vanilla and ground cinnamon. Simmer on low for a few more minutes. Turn off heat, but keep warm until ready to serve.
