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
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.
