Hopefully everyone saw my post that included pictures of mine and my family's trip to our local apple orchard! We had so much fun that day and found some really great stuff. We found some tasty apples obviously - so I've been searching through my family's old recipes looking for some apple inspiration! Once I saw this recipe for apple pancakes - I knew I had to try them!
My Mom said that my grandma used to make these pancakes all the time for her and her step-father when she was growing up. I guess he used to request them every weekend! I can see why - they're absolutely delicious! Also, be on the lookout for another recipe featuring some apples we bought on our visit to the apple orchard! Hint: It's a dessert!
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 cup non-dairy milk (I used So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Milk)
- 1 tbsp light oil
- 1/4 cup applesauce
- 1 medium apple - shredded
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and cinnamon. Once the dry ingredients are mixed well, stir in the milk, oil, and applesauce. Once the dry and wet ingredients have become well incorporated - mix in the shredded apple.
Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and lightly coat with cooking spray. Ladle the pancakes onto the skillet and flip once bubbles cover the surface of the pancake. Cook the other side of the pancake until lightly browned. It will take about half the time it took to brown on the opposite side. Serve with warm maple syrup and enjoy!
