Every year we take a trip to Upstate New York to a family owned apple orchard. There we walk up and down the rows, picking and tasting the apples. I always love to go apple picking because it gives me the chance to try new varieties. This year, Enceladus was able to taste some apples too! Sure sure did love eating her apples!
And so every year we’re left with a giant bag of apples, ready to be eaten and enjoyed! We do our fair share of snacking and baking with them, we especially love apple brownies, apple waffles and apple chips. While craving some weekend pancakes, I decided to bring together the worlds of breakfast and pies together to make these Apple Pie Pancakes!
Apple Pancakes Recipe
First, grab your beautiful apples. You can use your favorite type of apple for this recipe, but usually I use Gala or Ruby Frost (my favorite apple!).
You’ll need 1 cup of finely diced apples, which is about 1-2 apples depending on their size. There’s no need to peel the apples, just chop them up!
In a large bowl, gather your dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. You can even add a pinch of nutmeg if you want to up the “Fall” flavor in these pancakes!
Next, add your finely chopped apples into the batter.
Use a spoon to gently mix the apples around.
Pour about 1/3 cup of batter onto a hot griddle/pan, waiting about 2 minutes, and then flipping to the other side for 2 minutes. If you want to do toddler sized pancakes, I use about 1/8 cup of batter.
And just like that you have delicious Apple Pie pancakes to serve to your family (and yourself!).
Make sure to serve with a generous amount of maple syrup on top!
Can you freeze these pancakes? Yes!
These pancakes freeze great, so often I will make a double batch, one to eat and one to freeze. I tend to make these for my 1 year old often, freezing them to serve her for breakfast. To defrost I just remove from the freezer and microwave for about 30 seconds. Make sure they’re not too hot before serving.
Enjoy these Apple Pie Pancakes!
