If you’re looking for a breakfast recipe that screams holiday, you’re at the right place. These apple pancakes are perfect for fall season. They’re sweet and packed with apple flavor. They have a light and fluffy texture with soft pieces of apple in each bite.

To make it, you’ll need a few basic pantry ingredients like sugar, flour, baking powder, eggs, and of course, apples. Look for tangy-sweet apples that will work well with the pancake batter. It’s so easy to make: mix the batter ingredients, fold in the apples, and cook over medium heat. Serve the pancakes with powdered sugar or fresh cream.

Prepare the batter first. In a large mixing bowl, mix together the egg, sugar, vanilla, salt, oil, and milk in a bowl. Sift in the flour and baking powder and mix until the ingredients are well combined. Prepare the apples. Chop the apples into cubes, leaving one apple to cut into slices. Fold the apple pieces into the batter.

Cook the pancakes. Pour a bit of oil into a pan over medium heat. Add a tablespoon of the mixture to the pan. Place the apple slices on top of the pancakes and cook on low heat for 5 minutes with the lid on. Turn the pancakes over and cook on the other side until the pancakes are fully cooked through.

Tips

Use any apple variety for this recipe—it all depends on your preference. If you like an apple that’s more tart, go for Granny Smith. Otherwise, a Gala apple is also a good choice. It’s not too sweet, with great apple flavor.

There’s no need to peel the apples first, you can leave the skin on!

Short on time? Why not use pancake mix instead of making your own batter? Prepare the batter and stir through chopped apples before cooking.

How To Serve Apple Pancakes

These apple pancakes can be served in so many delicious ways.

Top with maple syrup and serve with your favorite pork sausages.

Instead of powdered sugar, you can also drizzle the pancakes with a glaze icing. Whip up a quick and easy glaze icing by whisking together 2 cups of confectioners’ sugar, 2 tbsp butter, 1 tsp vanilla extract, and up to 4 tsp milk. Drizzle over the cooked pancakes. Try any of the following icing variations:

  • Almond Icing: Replace half of the vanilla extract with almond extract and top with slivered almonds.
  • Maple Icing: Replace the vanilla extract with maple extract.
  • Cinnamon Icing: Add 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon to the icing.
  • Cream Cheese: 4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature, 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar (or powdered sugar), sifted 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract, 3 to 4 tablespoons milk
