Kitchen Adventures: Easy Apple Pancakes Recipe


This morning I woke up and felt like having something interesting for breakfast.

And just like that, I thought of apple pancakes, which I had never had before. After a quick Google search, I realized that the from-scratch recipes weren’t quite going to work. Reasons? Limited time and a lack of domestic fortitude.

So I took matters into my own hands and within 20 minutes, my tummy was happy.

So happy, I thought I would share the recipe with you. Note, I am neither a chef nor recipe writer, so measurements  and instructions are very grandma-ish (i.e. a dash of this, a smidgen of that). So work with me, let your instincts guide you and enjoy the ride!

This recipe made about 8 pancakes.




1 cup of your favorite just-add-water pancake mix (mine is Bisquick or Hungry Jack Buttermilk)

1/2 cup of water

half of a small apple, finely diced

1/4 Cinnamon stick, grated

2 dashes of ground nutmeg

2 drops of vanilla extract

Maple or pancake syrup


Whisk cinnamon, nutmeg and pancake mix in a bowl.

Stir in water and vanilla extract.

Throw in apples and mix well.

Heat skillet lightly covered in cooking spray or griddle to medium heat.

Pour about 1/8 cup of the batter at a time, turning when bubbles appear.

Cook until golden ground.

Top with your favorite syrup warmed.
