Ingredients

1 cup flour

1/4 cup yellow cornmeal

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Salt

1 1/3 cups low-fat buttermilk

1 large egg, lightly beaten

3 tablespoons maple syrup, plus more for serving, optional

1/2 cup diced apples

3/4 cup Jimmy Dean(R) Hearty Original Sausage Crumbles

2 tablespoons butter, for greasing griddle

Cinnamon Walnut Butter, recipe follows

Cinnamon-Walnut Butter

1 stick unsalted butter, softened

2 tablespoons toasted walnuts, finely chopped

2 tablespoons maple syrup

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Pinch of salt

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. 
  2. In a large measuring cup combine the buttermilk, egg, and 3 tablespoons maple syrup and stir with a fork. Stir into the flour mixture with a spatula until just combined. Mix in the diced apple and sausage crumbles. 
  3. Heat a pancake griddle over medium-low heat and then grease with a small amount of butter. Drop ladles of batter to form 4-inch pancakes, cooking pancakes for 2 to 3 minutes before flipping, or until the batter puffs up and bubbles form. Flip pancakes and continue to cook for an additional 1 to 2 minutes, until cooked through and nicely browned. Top with Cinnamon Walnut Butter and additional maple syrup, if desired.
