Apple Pancakes

My husband loves to wake up to a hearty breakfast. I lightened up a traditional pancake recipe I had in my files so we can enjoy the comforting flavor without all the fat and calories. —Fern Motzinger, Omaha, Nebraska

    I have not made this recipe, but I will. I don't use biscuit mix of any kind. I have a fantastic hot cake recipe I would use, and add the cinnamon and vanilla, and the grated apples. Maybe some apple pie spice would be very good also. I have also added grated potatoes to my pancake batter for a different recipe and taste.

    Me and my college friends love these! We cooked them on a griddle and they turned out very well. We don't use any substitutes either, but we're college kids. Thanks for the great recipe!

    My 4 year old granddaughter is a pancake lover. I made these for her and now no matter breakfast, lunch or dinner, she asks "gammom" to make the apple pancakes using this recipe. I also used the regular ingredients instead of low fat, or sugar free. These are fantastic!!!!!!

    Very tasty. Thank you for sharing! Here's a tip for the folks that do not like Busquick, check with your local University Extension Office. I know ours has a wonderful recipe for a homemade baking mix that doesn't contain all the additives & preservatives and is economical. Or you can look up Missouri's online at and when the page opens type in the search box "Missouri Mix". Best wishes.

    Instead of using the reduced-fat mis you can use a Whole Wheat- Glutin Free Mix.

    Great flavor, delicious. I think next time I would try using a little more milk as the batter was quite thick. My husband & I loved them.

    I don't use Bisquick because the ingredients are too unhealthy - I watch the ingredients before I buy anyhing - I try to use everything that has naural ingredients in it.
