~Apple Pancakes with Apple Maple Syrup~
Ladies and gents start your griddle as you are in for a real treat today! We love these Apple Pancakes with Apple Maple Sauce. They are the fluffiest pancake recipe I have ever tried and the apple topping sauteed in maple syrup is fantastic.
Don't wait for breakfast, have these any time your heart desires. And in our case they were an afternoon snack. Yep, you know being a food blogger means you might not be able to make and take pictures for the actual meal and this was one of those time. Of course my taste tester never turns down the 'goods' even if it is close to dinner time.
Trust me - you, your family and friends will flip over this tasty recipe.
Wake up sleepy head and enjoy these Apple Pancakes. Full of great apple flavor!
I wasn't kidding either when I said these were the fluffiest I've ever made. You will be able to see in one of the pictures below from a side angle. I think I'll be using and tweaking this recipe for future pancakes. We love 'em fluffy!

How to make fluffy pancakes?
The key to fluffy pancakes is not over-mixing the batter. It is totally fine for the batter to have a few lumps in it.
Also, if you have the time, let the batter rest about 20 minutes.
The baking powder and baking salt are chemical leaveners in the batter that cause small bubbles to appear. If you see those, then you did everything right!
I found this recipe a grocery store called Lunds and Byerly's - it was the first time I had stepped foot into one but had certainly heard how great they were.
On the way in I picked up a complimentary Real Food magazine where I came across this recipe. I'm always looking for ways to use up apples. We have one lone tree in the yard but it looks like it has about 250 apples on it! While we love crisps, pie and applesauce, it's sure nice to have some other recipes on hand.
Time for the syrup.
How are these stacking up for you 🙂

- In a medium bowl combine the egg, melted butter, vanilla and 1 cup of milk
- Stir the wet ingredients in the dry with a wooden spoon and only mix until just combined. Fold in the grated apples.
- Spray your griddle with PAM or lightly oil
- Place about ⅓ cup of batter on griddle and use the back of your scoop to spread out it out to about 4" since the batter is quite thick
- When the bottom turns a medium brown, flip and continue cooking until the other side is done (mine took about 5-6 minutes)
- For the sauce melt the butter then add the apples and saute for 5-6 minutes until apples are soft
- Add maple syrup, corn syrup and brown sugar
