Apple Pie Pancakes

What To Do With Leftovers?

My mom was never the type of person to buy canned food. Or sugary food. So canned apple pie filling...I didn't even know it was a thing. Apple pies were something to find at the church picnic, a rare treat indeed.

But for some reason at church one day, they were using apple pie filling. Probably for a picnic. Whatever the reason, mama brought home a container of leftover filling for me. Now what was I to do a plastic container with a few apples covered in what I scientifically label as "goop?"

The Solution to Everything

Pancakes. Pancakes are the solution to everything.

Why?

Because you can mix just about anything into pancake batter.

Because you can cook pancake batter in the microwave to make muffins (just a random fun fact).

Because you can eat pancakes for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Or second breakfast.

Apples in pancakes? Why, what a beautiful idea?

Of course, I don't want the whole slices of apples in my pancakes...that would be hard to cook. But what I do want, is all that goopy stuff.

For those of you who cannot understand my super scientific language...here is a picture.

The Final Result

I separated the big apples slices and got out all the goop I could. The goop is what I mix into my pancake batter, along with little tiny pieces of apples.

Whatever that goopy stuff is, it makes the pancakes super moist and flavorful. Be sure to get as much as you can into your pancake batter. The more goop, the better the batter.

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 10 min
Ready in: 15 min
Yields: 16ish silver dollar pancakes

The Recipe

  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup milk, (reduce if pancakes are too runny)
  • 1 T sugar
  • 2 T oil
  • 1 T baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • as much as you can manage of goop and mini apple pieces

Instructions

  1. Beat egg until fluffy.
  2. Add other ingredients. Mix until just combined. Batter can be a bit lumpy.
  3. Pour batter by 1/4 cup onto a hot griddle. The griddle should be preheated on the medium heat setting.
  4. When batter looks bubbly, flip over and cook the other side.
  5. Try to avoid pressing down on the pancakes with the spatula and flipping more than once.
  6. Wrap pancakes in aluminum foil to keep warm while you cook the rest of the batter. You can use the foil to wrap up and freeze leftovers.
  7. Top with apples. And syrup. And whipped cream. And cinnamon. Whatever you have to top them with!

      Haha, goop is what I'm calling the extra filling stuff around the apples. I'm not really sure how else to describe it. Not the apple slices themselves, just the rest of the filling that they are all coated with.
