Sliced Apple Pancakes – apple rings are dipped in pancake batter and then cooked until golden brown for a sweet breakfast treat.
Something about fall means cozy weekend mornings at home. Hanging out in our pajamas and just being lazy. But those weekend mornings aren’t complete without a delicious and comforting breakfast. Now if only I could find a way for the breakfast to just appear and the clean up to magically be done. Then lazy weekends would be complete.
Pancakes are one of my favorite things to have for breakfast. Super light and fluffy pancakes topped with maple syrup can be hard to beat. But there is one problem. They don’t always fill you up. So today we are fixing that. We are taking apple slices and turning them into pancakes! You still get light and fluffy pancakes, but you get a sweet crisp apple in the middle. A fun little twist with all the apples that are in season right now.
Apple pancakes are super easy to make. You can use whatever your favorite pancake recipe is. I used a box mix for these. You just dip the thinly sliced apples in the prepared pancake batter, and place in a hot skillet. The pancakes cook up and the apple inside stays a little crispy. Top with warm maple syrup for a breakfast everyone will love!
