1 cup – flour

1 cup – cornmeal

3 Tablespoons – brown sugar

1 teaspoon – baking powder

1 teaspoon – baking soda

1 teaspoons – kosher salt

1 large – Cortland or Macoun apple (peeled and grated)

1 cup – low fat plain yogurt

2 – eggs

3 Tablespoons – butter (melted)

1 cup – skim milk (optional)

2 Tablespoons – butter (cold)


In a medium sized mixing bowl combine the flour, cornmeal, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

In another bowl stir together apples, yogurt, eggs, and melted butter.

Add wet ingredients to dry and stir just to incorporate, taking care not to over mix. If your batter is too thick mix in cup of skim milk to thin it out.

Heat pan and lightly grease with butter.

Ladle 2 ounces of batter into the pan and cook for about 3 minutes or until the underside is golden brown and the edges begin to set up.

Flip and cook an additional minute or until golden.
