{apple cinnamon pancakes}

A chilly fall day calls for something warm and cozy for breakfast! Today I’m whipping up some apple cinnamon pancakes, a perfect Saturday morning treat. These are quite possibly the easiest recipe to throw together when you are wanting to take pancakes to the next level. Here’s the thing….I even cheat a bit and use a Bisquick recipe for the base. 🙂 Simple, right!?

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 batch of waffle batter prepared according to Bisquick box, you can find the recipe here. (Yes, I said waffles. Trust me, it makes the most fluffy pancakes!)
  • 2 tablespoons Cinnamon
  • 1 medium apple, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tablespoon all-purpose flour


Steps to prepare apples:

  1. Peel and core apple, slice into 1/4 inch thick slices.
  2. In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium-high heat.
  3. Stir in 1 tablespoon of cinnamon, brown sugar, vanilla and flour, mix until combined.
  4. Place apple slices in saucepan and stir to thoroughly cover.
  5. Simmer on medium-high heat for one minute, then remove from heat and set aside. 20140830_091215_Richtone(HDR) 20140830_091452_Richtone(HDR)

Steps to prepare pancakes:

  1. Heat skillet to medium-high heat, grease with cooking spray
  2. In a large bowl, prepare batter according to Bisquick recipe, adding 1 tablespoon of cinnamon to the mix.
  3. Gently remove apples from saucepan using tongs and add to the batter. Fold apples into batter.
  4. Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, pour batter onto skillet.
  5. When bubbles begin to appear on the surface of pancake, flip and cook until both sides are golden brown.
  6. Stack onto your plate, add a tad of butter and syrup of your choosing and enjoy!

I love seeing the little specks of cinnamon in the batter, it just makes me so happy! This recipe smells AMAZING! Definitely worth waking up early for. 🙂
