Here’s the thing: one of my most popular recipes of all time on the blog is my Pumpkin Pancakes with Cinnamon Syrup. They’re amazing, and I knew if so many people loved that recipe, than I just had to share these Apple Pie Pancakes!! If you’re a lover of breakfast foods and a lover of fall, do yourself a favor and make these…SOON! They’re another one of my all-time favorite fall pancake recipes! They have actual grated apple in them, plus a bunch of other delicious fall spices, and the end result will melt in your mouth!
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 Tbsp light brown sugar, packed
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp ground clove
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1 cup whole milk
- 1 large egg
- 1 Tbsp butter, melted and cooled slightly
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup grated apple (about 1 medium apple, peeled and grated)
- 1 apple diced
- 1 1/2 tsp Brown sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp sugar
- 1 Tbsp butter
- Cinnamon, to taste
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and salt.
- In a separate small bowl combine the milk, egg, butter and vanilla and beat to combine.
- Preheat your skillet over medium heat and grease lightly with butter or cooking spray.
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix just until combined--don't over mix, the batter should have some small lumps. Gently fold in the grated apple.
- Spoon about 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake. Cook until small bubbles form on the surface of the pancakes (2-3 minutes), and then flip and cook on the opposite side until golden brown.
- For the topping, combine diced applies, brown sugar, sugar, butter and cinnamon in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat until apples are slightly softened (about 5-8 minutes).
- Serve pancakes immediately with diced apple topping and your favorite syrup.
- *The pancakes are just as yummy without the apple topping
