Apple Fritter Pancakes

1 large apple, (I used Gala), peeled, cored, and sliced into 8 rounds
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch nutmeg
2 tablespoons sugar
1 egg
1 cup buttermilk
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
icing sugar
dash of cinnamon
whipped topping

1. For the apples, in a saucepan over medium high heat melt the butter. Add apple rounds and sugar. Cook apples until tender. Remove from heat and stir in cinnamon. Let mixture cool while preparing batter.
2. In a large bowl mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar.
3. In a small bowl whisk together egg, buttermilk, and vegetable oil. Add to dry ingredients and stir until combined.
4. Using 1/4 cup measurer, scoop batter into non stick pan over medium heat. Place one apple round onto each pancake, cook 2 minutes until golden brown, then flip onto apple side and continue cooking 2 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.
5. Serve pancakes with a dusting of icing sugar, a dash of cinnamon, and a dollop of whipped topping. Enjoy!

Makes 8.
