Apple Pie Pancakes


I love
dessert more than any other food.
Shocking, I
know. But dessert for breakfast is absolutely heavenly! I’ll
add just about anything to breakfast to make it more dessert-like, fruit,
spices, vanilla, powdered sugar, whipped cream and, of course, chocolate.

Pancakes are a great foundation for dessert for
breakfast. You can flavour them to taste like almost anything. Today, I was
craving apple pie. So out came the apples, cinnamon and my favourite pancake

pancake batter:
1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tbsp. white sugar
1 1/2 c.milk
1 egg
3 tbsp. butter, melted
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg or 1/4 tsp.
ground nutmeg
whipped cream

apple topping:
1 apple, peeled, cored and sliced thinly
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp water, apple juice or cider


  1. Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt
    and sugar making sure they’re well incorporated.
  2. Make a well in the center and pour in the
    milk, egg and the cooled melted butter. Fold in the dry ingredients just until
    they’re well mixed and smooth but be sure not to over-work the batter.
  3. Put apples, butter, cinnamon, sugar and water
    into a small saucepan and simmer on low until apples are tender and water has
    evaporated creating a syrup.
  4. Heat griddle or frying pan over medium high
    heat and grease well. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using
    approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides.
  5. Top with the cooked apples, whipped cream and
    maple syrup.
