They are always creating different, adventurous (sometimes TOO adventurous) flavors of pancakes. But this pancake recipe that really highlights everything we love about Fall flavors is definitely a keeper.
Apple Cinnamon Pancakes
This recipe is SOOO easy to make. That is mostly because it is using one of our favorite ingredients: Bisquick. We LOVE making things with Bisquick, from Casseroles to Chicken Fingers, you just can’t go wrong with it! Here is what you’ll need to get started:
- Bisquick Mix
- White Sugar
- Baking Powder
- Vegetable Oil
- Vanilla Extract
- Granny Smith Apple, Peeled and Shredded
What Is The Best Apple For Apple Cinnamon Pancakes?
It’s always good to bake with a firmer apple that will hold it’s shape in the recipe. We almost always use Granny Smith Apples for recipes like this. You could also use Jonagold, Braeburn or even Honey Crisp. Just note that some apples are sweeter than Granny Smith Apples. Honey Crisps are VERY sweet!
Notes, Tips and Variations
- What Cookware To Use– We cook our pancakes on a non-stick pan over a medium-low heat. We either spray it with a cooking spray or put some butter into the pan to melt and then cook the pancakes in that. Either way works. The butter can give your pancakes a nice crispy edge to them!
- Add Nuts- Sprinkling these with some crushed Pecans, Walnuts or almond slivers would be delicious! Our son is allergic to tree nuts so we opted out of that.
- Other Toppings- We simple put a pat of butter on some real maple syrup on ours and it was fantastic. Always use REAL maple syrup, not the cheap store brand stuff. We aren’t shy about were to cut costs on recipes, but some things are worth the extra money. Real Maple Syrup is one of them. Other toppings could be powdered sugar, whipped cream or a drizzle of caramel sauce.
I hope you enjoy these Apple Cinnamon Pancakes. Once you see how easy they are to make, you’ll never have “normal” pancakes again. Just don’t talk to my daughter, she will give you some of here more adventurous pancake ideas. This includes putting Skittles in pancakes or even chopping up Oatmeal Cream Pies to put in them. Ugghh…. That girl…..
