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.
