Alrighty, first of all, these are not as bad as they sound. Sometimes when coming up with names for recipes, you have to take into consideration who you are naming them for.

Namely in this case, my children. And the short one insisted that she did NOT want anything other than plain pancakes.

She was not eating these apple pancakes. Newp, not her.

She was firm.

She had a lovely time whining about it while I was shredding apples.

She tried batting her eyes.

She stomped out of the kitchen.

She also came running as fast as she could when I said “Kids! Apple pie pancakes are ready for breakfast!”.

And proceeded to scarf down four of them.

If I was a cruel mother I would have triumphantly announced “I told you so!”

Since I am a nice mother, I will just announce it to the world on my blog.

Excuse me one moment while I drop another dollar into my children’s future therapy fund.

Ingredients Needed:

3/4 cup of white flour
3/4 cup of whole wheat flour
4 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1 egg
1 1/2 cups of milk
1/8 of a cup of melted butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup of shredded apple
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cloves

Whisk together your dry ingredients in a large bowl. Now, I didn’t make these that sweet. I tried to lower the butter used, halve the white flour and replace with whole wheat, add apples and lessen the sugar. You can go right ahead and replace it with all white flour and sugar if you really want to.

I found that since the apples lend a texture that is different than usual, you can get away with the whole wheat flour no problem.

In another bowl, mix the egg,milk, vanilla and apples all together. If you haven’t already, get your griddle preheating at this point.

Make a well into the dry ingredients and  pour the wet mixture in. Mix them together until they are just combined and they are ready to go!

Yeesh. Let’s just say there is bad lighting at 8 am in the morning in my kitchen, thanks to fall being here.

These pancakes do take a little work to be spread out to cook, but it’s worth it in the end. They will bubble a little bit on top like normal pancakes, but that’s not how you can tell they are done. Watch for the edges to look cooked, and then that’s when to flip.

These were fantastic with maple syrup, the flavors seemed to match perfectly and stay in the “not too sweet” area that I was trying to achieve with these.

These are going to be a weekend staple from now on and I might even try all whole wheat next weekend to see how it works out.
