About This Recipe 

If you like the cinnamon and apple combo these pancakes will be your new favorite. Nothing compares to the warming, fluffy and soft apple cinnamon pancakes that taste just like a fresh out-of-oven apple pie. Double the deliciousness by pairing pancakes with golden and tart-sweet caramelized apples. I must say that apple cinnamon pancakes are among my top 3 favorite pancakes of all time.

 

Why You Will Love This Recipe

  • Perfect for fall: Two of the basic ingredients that are used in many autumn recipes are apples and cinnamon. The good news is that both of them are used in this pancake recipe. Cinnamon adds warmth, flavor, and natural sweetness to the apple pancakes.
  • Great leftover: Made a big enough batch of pancakes and don’t know what to do with the leftovers. These apple cinnamon pancakes keep well for 2 or 3 days. Just wrap them tightly in plastic wrap or place them in an air-tight container in the fridge.
  • Easy to make: These pancakes are so easy to make and they are done in less than 30 minutes! This simple recipe gives you a good reason to head into the kitchen and make your fall-flavored pancakes.

What Do You Need to Make Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

  • Flour: All-purpose flour will work just fine in most pancake recipes.
  • Baking powder: Baking powder is a leavening agent that increases the volume and lightens the texture of the pancakes.
  • Milk: Milk adds moisture and fat to the pancakes.
  • Melted butter: I think melted butter is the best option for this pancake, but if you like, you can also use vegetable oil.
  • Sugar: You can use brown sugar, maple syrup, or regular sugar as a sweetener for this pancake.
  • Egg: You will need one or more eggs, depending on the number of pancakes you make.
  • Apples: If you like the taste of caramelized apples to be completely sweet, use red apples, which have a sweet taste, but if you like the taste of pancakes and topping to be tart-sweet, you can use Granny Smith apples, which have a sour taste.
  • Salt: You will find a small amount of salt in most pancake recipes.
  • Vanilla extract: Vanilla adds sweetness and flavor.
  • Brown sugar: Use brown sugar to sweeten the caramelized apples.
  • Cinnamon: Gives a sweet and spicy taste to the pancakes and caramelized apples.
