Apple Spice Pancakes

Jon was actually home for breakfast on a week day, so to celebrate that occasion I got up early (for me) and made these yummy pancakes.  I thought my kids would love the concept of apples in their pancakes and be as excited about it as i was- they were not.  Which was really weird because, usually they aren't very picky eaters.  So, though they loved the pancake part, there were piles of uneaten apples leftover on their plates, which was fine since I just dumped them on top of my pancakes making them all the yummier.

Apple Spice Panckes

adapted from #23219


    • 2 cups flour
    • 4 teaspoons baking powder
    • 2 teaspoons salt
    • 3 tablespoons sugar
    • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1 dash nutmeg
    • 2 cups milk
    • 6 tablespoons canola oil
    • 2 beaten eggs
    • 1 cup finely chopped unpeeled apples (or peeled if you have picky eaters)


  1. Sift dry ingredients.
  2. Add milk, oil and dry ingredients to eggs and mix well.
  3. Fold in apples.
  4. Preheat lightly coated griddle or skillet over medium heat ( I use Pam or small amount of vegetable oil) -- Test by adding a few drops of water on hot pan -- When the drops start to "dance" on the griddle it is time to cook.
  5. For each pancake pour about a 1/4 cup of batter onto a hot griddle and Cook on first side until bubbles that form begin to pop and edges look dry.
  6. With a spatula, turn and cook until second side is rich golden brown.
