Apple Pancakes

1/4 c. butter, melted
1 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
1 egg
1 c. milk
1 1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 c. shredded tart apple
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 Tbsp. white sugar

In a large bowl, combine butter, egg, milk and apple. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, cinnamon and sugar. Stir flour mixture in with the apple mixture, just until combined. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Serve hot.
