Cinnamon Apple Pancakes
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 25 min.
I’ve been cooking for about 11 years now learning from my French father. I’ve made pancakes hundreds of times. 4 teaspoons of baking powder?? That’s insane. My girlfriend tried these and they came out horrible. Overly cinnamon in taste and bitter from the over abundance of baking powder included, don’t waste your time with this horrid recipe.
I did not care for these; my family, however, loved them (guess who's making more of these!). This is a batter that is thick & not sweet. I'm okay with the not sweet (sugar-restricted diet) but I like thinner pancakes. So, I suggest 1 c. of whole wheat flour & 1 c. of unbleached white flour. Or, 2 c. unbleached flour (it turns out just fine). Also, use a food chopper or processor to dice or shred the peeled apple for consistency.
I read the comments first and edited the recipe before I made it. I did 1/2 whole wheat flour and 1/2 all purpose flour. I also added a teaspoon of pumpkin spice. They were fabulous, but I think I would add even more spice next time.
I haven't made the original recipe, but I used all-purpose flour, used butter instead of the oil, and used light brown sugar instead of the honey. They were gooooood! :)
Not ImpressedI made these and I have to say I didn't love them. I was looking for a savory and sweet apple cinnamon pancake.These pancakes came together easily and yielded a consistently fluffy product, not mushy or wet or too clumpy. My issue is that they are rather tasteless! The author notes they are so sweet that you don't need syrup - I disagree! The pancakes are flavorless. I usually put butter, lemon juice and plenty of sugar in my regular pancakes. I was shocked to see no sugar listed on the ingredients, but assumed the honey in this recipe would more than make up for it. It does not! I couldn't even taste the honey, to be honest. And I used locally sourced, amazing honey!!!I had to load my pancakes with syrup for them to be sweet enough for me to enjoy.After all is said and done, I'm probably more likely to simply add chopped apples and cinnamon to my normal pancake recipe next time and see how it turns out.Worth a shot though - maybe you will like your pancakes less sweet.
When I saw other reviews on this recipe I thought perhaps this may of been due to the fact some people do not use a lot of wheat flour. And I know tastes vary from person to person. So, I made this recipe anyways. My family and I was very disappointed in these. Normally when I make pancakes from scratch there is no leftovers. There was with these. I won't be making these again.

By far the blandest pancakes ever. No flavor.
We added butterscotch chips and all I can say is YUM!!
Great pancakes! My husband has been asking me to make these every weekend for the last 2 months! I do change up the flours, use flaxseed in place of the eggs, and use soy or almond milk. I also use applesauce instead of oil and add 1 teaspoon extra of apple spice. Wonderful!!
