I came up with this recipe as one of my food projects. I wanted to try to make pancakes with different flavors.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

These little gems taste like an apple pie, but in pancake form. They're jam-packed with apples and spices. Don't let the bourbon scare you. It's not overpowering in the sauce. The warm caramel glaze is the perfect complement to the pancake.

Tip: We recommend dicing the apples small so they cook faster. The batter will be thick, but we cooked these in a cast iron pan with a bit of butter and they turned out fantastic. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Apple Pie Pancakes w/ Caramel Bourbon Glaze

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a small saucepan, heat 1/2 cup of caramel topping and 3 Tbsp of bourbon.
  • 2Simmer on low heat while preparing pancake batter and pancakes.
  • 3In a large mixing bowl, combine Bisquick, egg, milk, apple pie spice and sugar.
  • 4Using a wire whisk, beat until batter is somewhat smooth.
  • 5Gently fold in the apples.
  • 6On a heated griddle or non-stick skillet, spray non-stick cooking spray. Pour just under 1/3 cup of the batter into the skillet. If using a large skillet, you should be able to get about 2 pancakes per batch. Don’t overcrowd the skillet.
  • 7Cook until edges are dry and batter starts to bubble a little in the middle. Carefully turn the pancake over using a spatula. Once you have flipped the pancake, take a basting brush and dip into butter. Carefully spread the butter over the pancakes while they are in the skillet.
  • 8Place one pancake on a plate, add about 1 tablespoon of the bourbon glaze, top with another pancake and additional bourbon glaze.
  • 9Garnish with fried apple slices with cinnamon, if desired. Sprinkle with additional apple pie spice, if desired.
