Who doesn’t love Cinnamon Apple Pancakes? Soft, fluffy, cinnamony, appley, pancakes. These are especially delectable if you top them with homemade applesauce, such Farmhouse Applesauce. The picture shows this combo with a drizzle of real maple syrup, but you won’t even need that. With so much apple flavor going on, and hints of spicy cinnamon, who needs maple syrup? Enjoy!
- Dry Ingredients
- 2 1/3 cups - whole wheat flour
- 2 tsp - ground cinnamon
- 2 tsp - baking powder
- 1/2 tsp - baking soda
- 1 tsp - salt
- Wet Ingredients
- 2 cups - water
- 1/4 cup - unsweetened applesauce, smooth style
- 1 Tbs - apple cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup - agave nectar
- 2 medium - apples, cored and chopped, no need to peel
- If you are using an non-stick, electric griddle with a temperature control, preheat it to 375 °F. If you are using a non-stick skillet or non-stick, stove-top griddle, preheat it over medium heat.
- While the griddle or skillet is heating, combine the Dry Ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring well to thoroughly mix the ingredients.
- In a separate bowl, mix together the Wet Ingredients. Pour this into the flour mixture and whisk together just until combined. The point is to not over-stir the mixture, which can result in tough pancakes. If a few wisps or tiny clumps of flour are still visible that's OK, they will cook out. Gently fold in the chopped apples.
- Check the griddle or skillet to be sure it's properly heated and ready for the batter. Test by sprinkling a few drops of water on the surface. At the proper temperature the droplets will dance around. If the griddle is too hot the droplets will evaporate on contact, in which case you should reduce the heat, wait a few minutes and test again.
- Gently ladle a scant 1/2 cup of batter onto the hot surface.
- When bubbles form on the top of the pancake, it is ready to flip. Using a spatula, flip each pancake and cook another 1-2 minutes.
- Serve warm, plain or with your favorite toppings. I suggest the Farmhouse Applesauce on top.
