    In 10-inch skillet, melt 3 tablespoons butter over medium-high heat. Add apple slices; stir to coat with butter. Sprinkle with brown sugar. Cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

    Meanwhile, in medium bowl, mix pancake ingredients just until blended. Heat griddle or skillet over medium-high heat (375°F). Brush with vegetable oil if necessary (or spray with cooking spray before heating). For each pancake, pour 1/4 cup batter onto hot griddle. Cook until edges are dry and bubbles form on top. Turn; cook other side until golden brown.

    Serve pancakes with bourbon-apple-bacon sauce and bourbon-maple syrup.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Stir pancake batter with a wire whisk or fork just until the ingredients are moistened. Any remaining lumps in the batter will disappear during cooking.
  • tip 2
    To test if the griddle is ready for cooking pancakes, sprinkle with a few drops of water; if bubbles jump around, the heat is just right.
  • tip 3
    To keep pancakes warm, place in a single layer on a cookie sheet. Cover with foil and place in a 200°F oven up to 10 minutes
