Secret Recipe Club: Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

Happy Secret Recipe Club reveal day!! I was so excited to visit Angel's Homestead and view her extensive recipe index; I knew I wouldn't have any trouble finding something my family would really enjoy. And honestly I didn't make it very far through the list before I knew what I was making for breakfast that very morning!

Learn more about April (our very own Secret Recipe Club's owner!) here; at Angel's Homestead you will find a blog focused on family - frugal tips, down-home comfort cooking, and posts focused on good food and good living.

So, back to my recipe selection! I was thinking about seeing if I could find something to make for breakfast over the weekend, and it didn't take me more than a few seconds after clicking the "Breakfast" link to spot this fantastic Apple Cinnamon Pancakes recipe. I knew that's what I would be making. I could imagine the smell of them cooking - and let me tell you, the smell is pretty dang fantastic!

These are absolutely delicious. I loved the tender, warm pieces of apple blended into the lightly cinnamon-flavored pancake batter. It all works absolutely beautifully together. Top these with a pat of butter and some warm maple syrup and you will be in apple-cinnamon heaven.

I only made 4 very large pancakes out of this recipe - one was enough for each of us for breakfast.

A few other recipes I tucked away to try soon include Dijon Turkey Burgers, Crock Pot Applesauce, or Blue Ribbon Mac and Cheese - YUMM!

Apple Cinnamon Pancakes from Angel's Homestead

1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 TBS brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup applesauce
1 apple, peeled and chopped
1 egg
2 TBS melted butter (or margarine)

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together dry ingredients: flour, salt, cinnamon, sugar and baking powder.
  2. In a another medium bowl blend the milk, egg, applesauce and melted butter.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and combine gently, just until just blended.
  4. Stir in the chopped apples; the batter will be thick and lumpy.
  5. Prepare a skillet, and let the batter rest for at least 10 minutes.
  6. Melt a tablespoon of butter over medium to medium-low heat. Once the skillet is hot and butter is melted, pour about 1/3 cup scoop of pancake batter onto the prepared pan.
  7. Let the pancake cook until bubbles begin to form on the top, the edges begin to appear dry, and the bottom is lightly browned.
  8. Gently flip the pancake with a spatula and cook the second side until it is also golden brown, about a couple minutes more.
