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. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Apple Pie Pancakes w/ Caramel Bourbon Glaze

Step-by-Step

  1. In a small saucepan, heat 1/2 cup of caramel topping and 3 Tbsp of bourbon.
  2. Simmer on low heat while preparing pancake batter and pancakes.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine Bisquick, egg, milk, apple pie spice and sugar.
  4. Using a wire whisk, beat until batter is somewhat smooth.
  5. Gently fold in the apples.
  6. On 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.
  7. Cook 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.
  8. Place one pancake on a plate, add about 1 tablespoon of the bourbon glaze, top with another pancake and additional bourbon glaze.
  9. Garnish with fried apple slices with cinnamon, if desired. Sprinkle with additional apple pie spice, if desired.
