Apple Pancakes

From Captain Jefferds Inn (Kennebunkport, ME)
2 c. unbleached flour
2 1/2 c. sugar
2 t. baking powder
1/2 T. salt
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. ginger
1/2 t. nutmeg
1 t. ground cloves
1/2 t. mace
3 eggs
2 1/2 c. buttermilk
2 1/2 T/ bacon drippings or oil
1 1/2 c. tart apples, shredded, firmly packed
1 1/2 c. pecans or walnuts, coarsely chopped

Combine flour, sugar, and dry ingredients. In a large bowl, beat eggs lightly and stir in oil and milk. Add flour mixture and blend just until dry ingredients are moistened. Batter will be slightly lumpy. Stir in apples and pecans and let stand for 20 minutes. Stirring lightly, pour 1/4 c. batter onto a hot skillet. As bubbles appear on top, turn and brown on the other side.
