Sift together flour, baking powder (1 Tbsp amount is correct), baking soda, salt sugar and cinnamon. Beat sour milk and eggs in a small bowl. Add apples, unpeeled and cut into small pieces and melted butter. Add the sour milk mixture to the dry ingredients. Stir well.

Cook as you would ordinary pancakes in greased cast iron fry pan.

Brown on both sides. Serve plain or with butter and maple syrup.

to quote Mme Benoit, " Each year at the end of September, the whole family would go to the Eastern Townships Apple Festival. And there, instead of eggs in syrup as was the custom at sugaring parties, apples pancakes were served with lots of butter and delicious Townships maple syrup."
