Growing up my family loved to have breakfast for dinner. That usually consisted of Dad making us apple pancakes with and Mom making bacon. Pancakes are a staple weekend breakfast food and instead of resorting to a pre-made mix take an extra few minutes to whip up this batter; the ingredients are probably already in your pantry.

Key Ingredients in This Recipe

  • Apples – My dad always used Granny smith apple in these pancakes and I love the contrast of the juicy, tart apples and the sweet pancakes and syrup.
  • Baking powder – The baking powder acts as a leavening agent in the batter. It helps to create bubbles in the batter and keep the pancakes lighter while browning the outside.

How to Make Apple Pancakes

  1. Heat griddle or non-stick pan. Heat a large non-stick sauté pan or griddle over medium heat.
  2. Make the batter. In a small bowl whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt and set aside. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together milk, oil and egg.
  3. Mix to combine and add apple. Add the dry ingredients to the milk mixture and whisk until ingredients are just combined. Gently stir in the apple.
  4. Spoon batter into the pan. Spray sauté pan or griddle with cooking spray. For each pancake spoon 2 to 3 tablespoons of batter onto the pan.
  5. Cook. Cook until the surface of the pancakes have a few bubbles, 1 to 2 minutes.
  6. Flip and continue to cook. Flip the pancakes carefully with a spatula and cook until the underside is golden brown, an additional 1 to 2 minutes. Remove and transfer to a serving platter.
  7. Serve. Serve warm with maple syrup.

Tips and Tricks for This Recipe

  • If making many pancakes, preheat the oven to 200°F and arrange pancakes on a baking sheet covered loosely with aluminum foil to keep warm while the rest of the pancakes are cooked.
