Apple "fritter" pancakes

Pancakes, Pancakes, Pancakes!

I LOVE pancakes! They are one of my favorite foods, but sometimes the family gets tired of eating the same kind of pancake all of the time. Earlier this week I tried an apple fritter recipe from Jeff's Kitchen blog. It was really good, but I felt kind of guilty giving it to my family for breakfast since they are deep fried. So, I got to thinking, "I wonder if I can make them like pancakes?" So I took the basics and came up with Apple "fritter" pancakes. The family LOVED them! So I thought I would share with all of you! I hope you and yours enjoy them.



  • 4 medium apples (whatever kind you like), peeled and chopped
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 stick butter/margarine, melted
  • 4 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups milk


  1. Mix together dry ingredients: Flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, cinnamon (you could add ½ tsp of nutmeg if you like; I don’t care for it so I didn’t use it).
  2. Add milk, eggs, vanilla, and melted butter. Mix well; add chopped apples and stir until completely coated in the batter. The batter is thick; if you would like it thinner, add more milk.
  3. Preheat a lightly greased griddle to 350 degrees. The griddle is ready when a few drops of water splashed on top quickly evaporate.
  4. Use a 1/3 cup measuring cup to put batter on the griddle. I used the back of the cup to spread the batter out a little bit. Cook until tiny bubbles appear on the top and the edges look slightly “dry” about 3-4 minutes. Flip and cook for about 3-4 minutes longer or until a toothpick or knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
  5. I got about 16 pancakes out of this. Serve with a pat of butter and a sprinkle of cinnamon & sugar or syrup.
