APPLE PIE PANCAKES, FALL’S FINEST BREAKFAST

APPLE PIE PANCAKES, FALL’S FINEST BREAKFAST Posted on October 22, 201613 Comments

AN APPLE A DAY KEEPS THE DOCTOR AWAY

My youngest baby cannot get enough of apples. We always have a few in the fruit bowl. She is not picky: Granny Smith, Gala, Red Delicious……it does not matter to her. Most of the time she will just cut an apple into wedges and sits down with a jar of peanut butter and goes to scooping. However, she does enjoy using them in a homemade baked good occasionally.

She has made apple pies, tarts, and turnovers with fresh apples. Now, you know I have never proclaimed myself as a top notch baker (I leave that to Maddie), but I thought I could come up with an apple inspired pancake.

FALL APPLES ARE THE BEST

Now, that Fall is in the air and the apples seem to be amazingly fresh I am inspired to make an apple pie type pancake. I love apples paired with cinnamon and nutmeg. That sounds just amazing. I want my apples to be in big slices, not chunks or just flavored in the cakes. It took a little experimenting, but I think I have come up with a winner. Fluffy cakes with apple pie filling cooked right in.

Placed sifted baking mix in a large mixing bowl. In another bowl add eggs, milk, orange juice, yogurt, vanilla extract, and vegetable oil and stir until combined. Add wet ingredients to baking mix and stir. Do not over mix batter, there will still be some small lumps in the mix.

On a griddle set to 352 degrees, melt butter and scoop 1/2 cup portions of batter onto grill. Place slices of cooked apples on uncooked side of pancake. Cook for about 4-5 minutes then flip. Cook on second side for 4-5 minutes. Remove from griddle. Serve hot with warm apple slices and maple syrup. Makes 16 pancakes.

  1. You have just brought me back to my childhood. I ate is a lot as a child. I cannot wait to make these again I totally forgot about them. I’m excited to try them.

  2. These sound so perfect for fall. One of my favorite things about fall is that it is apple season! Nothing like fresh apples!

  3. These apple pie pancakes look and sounds so good. My family would love these pancakes and they really would make for a great breakfast. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  4. Oh wow, an interesting way to make pancakes. I never tried this since I am a fan of the classics but I might just try how this is – seems to add flavor and yumminess to pancakes as a whole.

  5. These look wonderful – I also have been using egg to make a banana-type pancake.
    This would be a leap up from just eating apple slices dipped in peanut butter (something I do frequently as well).

  6. Alright, so I have never hard of Apple Pie pancakes, but I was hooked instantly. This would be a dish to have on a cold morning, in a cozy house just watching the snow float in the air. I am going to have to try it out this winter.
