Easy Apple Pancakes

Crystal Cap


My husband used to make Apple Pancakes and I was never a big fan of them. When I added cinnamon, they became my favorite weekend breakfast. The recipe would likely work with homemade pancakes, just add cinnamon to dry ingredients. Also, If using an electric griddle, I recommend setting the temperature slightly lower than indicated (mine says 400* for pancakes) to let the apple cook a bit longer.

1 c
pancake mix
water (according to pancake mix directions)
1/2 tsp
medium peeled apple


1Mix dry pancake mix with cinnamon. Add water and mix a few times.
2Cut small, THIN slices of apple (dime-nickel sized) directly into wet pancake batter. (nothing fancy. just use your paring knife and work your way around the apple and let the pieces drop in until you're down to mostly core. You could grate the apple, but I don't prefer it.)
3Mix batter a few more times to distribute the apple pieces.
Cook as you would regular pancakes, about 3 minutes per side. They will be lumpy and not circular, but they'll be delicious.
4Serve with syrup or granulated sugar.
(To make more, increase ingredients while keeping the ratio the same - for each 1 c mix, use 1 apple and 1/2 tsp cinnamon)
