Apple Pecan Pancakes

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 30 min.


12 pancakes

Apples and pecans add a light crunch to these fluffy pancakes. Because they're easy to prepare and have a nice cinnamon flavor, they make a hearty breakfast, perfect for a crisp fall morning.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature, separated
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped peeled apple
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans


  1. In a bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Stir in milk, egg yolks and vanilla. Add apples and pecans. Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form; fold into the batter. Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a hot greased griddle or skillet. Turn when bubbles begin to form and the edges are golden. Cook until the second side is golden.

    This is my family’s favorite recipe. I recommend grating the apples; it disperses the favor and cooks more consistently, as well as toasting the pecans before chopping them. Yum!!

    I made these years ago and loved them. My kids loved them and Even my picky husband liked them. I keep meaning to make them again.

    Texture was good - very light, not heavy.

    I didn't see any cloves in the recipe.

    Made these twice and they are a good pancake. We decreased the cloves a bit.
