Apples ‘n’ Cream Pancake

This cozy recipe is delicious for breakfast or brunch. I usually make a double batch because everyone wants more! With our own orchard, we have plenty of Delicious and Winesap apples—they make this a true midwestern meal. —Ruth Schafer, Defiance, Ohio

    This was so delicious and easy. I would like to make it again and use strawberries. Definitely better than regular pancakes.

    I thought it was great cast iron recipe. Any chance I get to use cinnamon, I do because it’s healthy for you and I read reviews before I made it so I did use a little less than what the recipe called for when it came to brown sugar. I used about a 1/4 of teaspoon of cinnamon. I was really happy with the final result. It was tasty, balanced, and beautiful! I’ll definitely make it again and experiment with other fruit and nut toppings.

    Wow! I was a little unsure about how the crisp apples would taste with the warm pancake, but it was so decadent! My picky 3 year old gobbled this right up! I, personally, thought it was a bit sweet, but overall this was a very easy recipe to make and I would love to make it again.

    I was very unsure of the batter with only a half cup of flour. However, it came out awesome. I added cinnamon to the batter . It tasted like a cinnamon roll with apples. it was very good and I make it again.

    Great recipe! It was a big hit! Easy to make and very tasty. A great change of pace for breakfast but not for those who are watching their diet. I will definitely be making this again and will use it when company stays over.
