Apple Pancakes

It's apple season and I love apple baked goods. We are so fortunate to have a brother-in-law who has an apple orchard in the Okanagan and is so generous with his apples. Whatever variety...they are all good in these apple-iscious pancakes!  This recipe came from a newspaper many decades ago and is an old favorite in our home.

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup coarsely grated apple
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 Tablespoon butter, melted
  1. Mix dry ingredients.
  2. Stir in apple.
  3. Combine eggs, milk and butter;
  4. add dry ingredients and stir until combined.
  5. Pour small amounts onto lightly greased hot griddle
  6. and cook until bubbles form on the surface;
  7. turn and brown on the other side.
  8. Serve with hot apple cinnamon sauce and whipped cream.

Hot Apple Cinnamon Sauce:
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup apple juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup grated apple
  • 1/4 cup butter
  1. Combine sugar, juice, and cinnamon and boil to a heavy syrup over medium heat (about 5 minutes).
  2. Stir in butter and apple...cook another minute or so.
Add some sauteed Mennonite farmer sausage, and call it a meal!


  1. Yum! I often grate an apple into my regular pancake batter and add a dash of cinnamon. It somehow makes the meal a little more special!

  2. I have never put apples in my pancakes. . until now. . Thank you for the great idea. . I love it .. I'm even considering cheating and grating apple into my organic whole wheat pancake mix that we have left from camping. The apple cinnamon sauce looks wonderful. .

  3. what a great recipe. I shall have to try it...but even without trying it I can tell that it would be a real 'winner' at my dream B&B. For boys will love it!

  4. Okay, Saturday's breakfast is planned! These sound really good!

  5. Sounds like a great backwards dinner to me!!

  6. These are bound to be a hit with my child that loves, loves, loves apples. Thanks for the recipe!

  7. What a great breakfast..apples in pancakes are so good!
