Apple Pancakes with Maple Syrup

We have a very tasty Tuesday morning tradition at our house. I make apple pancakes for the kids (and myself) and we happily indulge. I'm mostly certain that this is how my four year old daughter maintains her grip on the growth chart that has forever presented itself as a challenge to her tiny self. She eats four pancakes each morning, until we run out of them, which is several days before the following Tuesday.
Here's my version, taken from Brunch, the perfect weekend treat by Jennifer Donovan.
Ingredients -
1 1/2 cups self-rising flour (specialty flour, and very easy to find)
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp flaxseed (I add this to get some good stuff into the kids. It's absolutely optional.)
1 egg
1 cup milk
2 apples, peeled and grated
maple syrup
To make them -
Mix the flour, sugar, cinnamon, and flaxseed in a bowl. (I peel and grate the apples at this point.) Beat the egg and the milk together and pour into the dry ingredients. Stir together until it's combined and then add the apples.
Heat the butter in a large nonstick pan over medium low heat until melted and bubbling. With a ladle, pour in the mixture and cook until bubbles appear in the batter. Flip and cook until golden brown. Increase or decrease heat as needed. And add a little more butter between sessions.

ENJOY! We can't get enough of them!
