I grew up with a tradition of making apple pie pancakes for Sunday breakfast. My mom would make them for us every week and it was always a special treat. I’ve been making them for my own family for years and they’re always a hit! I wanted to share this authentic recipe with you all so that you can make it for your own family.
These apple pie pancakes are the perfect way to bring your family together for breakfast. They’re delicious and easy to make, plus they’re packed with flavor. The caramelized apples add a touch of sweetness and the cinnamon gives it a warm, comforting flavor. The maple syrup is the perfect finishing touch!
I hope you love this recipe as much as my family does. Enjoy!
For a sweeter pancake, try adding 1/2 cup of brown sugar to the batter. You can also try adding a handful of raisins or chopped walnuts for a crunchy texture.
For a healthier option, use whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose flour, and replace the butter with olive oil.
For a gluten-free version, replace the all-purpose flour with a gluten-free flour blend.
