Apple Cinnamon Pancakes are perfect for breakfast or brunch. They are an easy recipe that kids can help out with in the kitchen on the weekends.
Fall is here…I don’t know where you live but I live in New York where fall is one of the prettiest seasons of the year…if not the prettiest. The leaves on the trees are so colorful and the cool crisp air feels so nice. And what better to wake up to on a crisp morning than with a stack of these Apple Cinnamon Pancakes with maple syrup drizzling down the sides of them!
When autumn comes around, the farmers market is a great place to visit with so many colorful fruits and vegetables to choose from. At the top of our list are apples and pears. I love going there to get fresh fruits and vegetables. Do you go to one near you? The farmer’s market in our area goes from May to November it is great to get everything so fresh.

This Apple Cinnamon Pancake recipe is my husband’s favorite pancake recipe. He is the pancake maker in our house…why is it that in so many houses, it is the dad making the pancakes?!
Ingredients that you will need to make these Apple Cinnamon Pancakes:
Apple (one medium sized apple)
Why this recipe works:
The recipe is easy to make.
The baking powder in this recipe makes the pancakes light and fluffy.
Apples and cinnamon go so well together!
How to make Apple Cinnamon Pancakes:
Heat your griddle to medium heat (350 degrees)
Beat the eggs in a large bowl and add in the milk, oil and vanilla extract. Whisk all ingredients together.
Add the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon to the egg mixture. Mix well. The batter should be medium consistency…not too thin yet not too thick.
Gently fold in the diced apples into the batter. The apples should be peeled and diced small.
Using a ladle, drop the pancake batter onto the preheated griddle to make abut a three inch circle for each pancake. (or whatever size you prefer).
Flip the pancakes with a spatula once the one side is slightly browned. A good way to tell when the first side is done is when you see bubbles on the top of the pancake. You can lift the edge of the pancake up a little with your spatula to take a peak to make sure they are slightly browned.
Once they are flipped, let them cook until the bottom is done. You should cook each side about 2-3 minutes.
Serve the pancakes warm with maple syrup and/or butter. If you love pancakes as much as we do, try out our recipe for Chocolate Chip Pancakes!
Recipe tip: When making the pancakes, make sure your griddle is heated before you start making them. Here’s a little trick to tell when your pan is ready…sprinkle a few drops of water on the pan. If the water disappears, the pan is heated enough to make your pancakes.
How many pancakes will this recipe make?
This recipe makes about 24 pancakes when made about 3 inches round. How many you get depends on how big you make the pancakes.
Have fun making them and make some fun weekend memories with your family while having your delicious pancake breakfast! Our weekend breakfasts are something we look forward to often!
Have you tried my Apple Pie recipe yet? If you haven’t yet, give it a try soon! It is a hit in my house and my husband has requested it for the last few years on his birthday. I make it with a delicious crumb topping instead of another crust on top.
The apple pie recipe comes from my mother in law. I love those family recipes that are handed down. I think it might be one of the easiest pies to make…seriously! And it really is sooo good!
My Apple Pie and these Apple Cinnamon Pancake recipes are probably my favorite apple recipes. How about you…what are your favorite apple recipes? I would love to hear from you in the comments section below.
