Cinnamon Spice Pancakes with Sauteed Apples

23 Jul

This is one of my favorite ways to make pancakes – the spiced pancakes are bursting with warm flavor and the apples add a nice texture with each bite that compliments the pancakes perfectly. It’s like an apple pie in breakfast form 🙂

Look how big and fluffy these cakes are – delish to the last bite!

Cinnamon Spice Pancakes with Sauteed Apples

2 cups all-purpose flour
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs, slightly beaten
2 cups milk
2 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp vegetable oil

1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
1 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp cinnamon sugar
Maple Syrup

Combine the first 5 ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Combine the eggs, milk, honey, and oil in a separate bowl, then add this mixture to the dry ingredients. Stir together until just combined – make sure not to overmix! Let the batter sit until ready to cook.

In the meantime, melt the butter in a skillet. Add the apple slices and sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar. Stir to combine and cook until apples are soft.

Pour about 1/3 cup of batter on a nonstick griddle/skillet/pan. Flip when bubbles form, then cook on the other side until golden brown. Top your stack of pancakes with maple syrup and sauteed apples.

    About how many pancakes and/or servings does this make? Looks delish!

      Whoops – I’m bad about putting the serving size, sorry! This will make 12 pancakes and the apples are usually enough for two small stacks, so you might want to make more of those!

    mmm…. I wonder if you sauteed small chunks the apples until they are very close to done and then mixed it in, if that would work… I may have to experiment. I bet these would be lovely with whole wheat flour as well!

      Hmm, that might work too! The original recipe had grated apple in it, so that’s another option, if you want the apple inside the actual pancake!
