Apple pancakes and syrup

These apple pancakes are always moist and nutritious. For a delicious twist, try these pancakes with hot cinnamon syrup!


1/4 cup melted butter
1 egg
1 cup 1-percent milk
1 cup shredded tart apple
1-1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1-1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon white sugar


In a large bowl, combine butter, egg, milk and apple.

In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, cinnamon and sugar. Stir flour mixture into apple mixture, just until combined.

Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.

Variation: Apple Slice Pancakes

Apple Slices 1 Granny Smith apple

To-Go-With: Apple Sausage

Apple sausage has been commonly served as a breakfast sausage, frequently seasoned with sage. It's also been known as a fall holiday favorite.

1 large apple, finely chopped
1 pound lean ground turkey or chicken
Sage and rosemary, to taste

Season with sage and rosemary and shape into breakfast sausage patties. Cook in skillet over medium heat for 4 to 5 minutes on each side until meat reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees.

Noteable Notes

In medieval times, physicians were taught that cooked apples could relieve disturbances of the bowels, lungs and nervous system. And pancakes date back to a recipe in a cookbook by the Roman epicure Apicius.
