How to Make Apple Pancake Recipes 

When I learned how to make apple pancake recipes I found that they go way back in America’s history, large due to the abundance of apples grown in this country. Pancake recipes, griddlecakes, a hotcake recipe or your favorite flapjack recipe (basically all the same) vary a little from hearty buckwheat cakes to very delicate ones.

The one basic difference is that they are cooked in a waffle iron rather than on a griddle. The cakes all should be light, tender and a uniform golden brown in color. The cakes can be thin or a little thicker but must be able to cook all the way through; the thicker ones are harder to cook through.


The thicker and stiffer the batter, the less the pancake batter should be stirred. Too much stirring makes tough soggy cakes because it develops gluten and makes for loss of leavening. When thin batters have to stand for a while before using, more baking powder needs to be added because leavening powder is loss.

APPLE RAISIN PANCAKES

When I learned how to make apple pancake recipes I found that raisins go very well with them like this recipe below. 

  • 2 ½ Cups flour
  • 2 Tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 Teaspoon salt
  • 1 Teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 Teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ Teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 Teaspoon ground cloves
  • ¼ Cup molasses
  • 2 Cups milk
  • 2 Beaten eggs
  • ½ Cup melted butter
  • 1 Cup finely peeled and diced apples
  • ¼ Cup raisins


Mix flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda and spices together in a large bowl.

Combine the molasses, milk, eggs and butter in a medium bowl.

Add molasses mixture to the flour mixture and stir until moistened; fold in the apples and raisins.

Cooked on a lightly greased hot griddle using ¼ cup of the batter for each pancake.

Use back of spoon to spread batter out evenly.

Serve pancakes hot with butter and molasses or syrup.

APPLE BACON PANCAKES

I learned how to make apple pancake recipes that add a little “twist” to what we generally have as pancakes. A little bacon is added to the batter to give it a sweet smoky flavor.

  • ½ Cup apple cider
  • 3 Tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1 ½ Teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 ½ Teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 Cup whole wheat flour
  • ¼ Cup plus 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1 Teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ Teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 Large egg
  • 1 Large egg white
  • ½ Cup buttermilk
  • 1 peeled and diced medium apple
  • 4 Regular slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
  • 1 Teaspoon vegetable oil

To make CIDER SYRUP combine the cider, 2 tablespoons of the brown sugar, lemon juice and cornstarch in a small saucepan; bring to a boil over medium heat and cook 1 to 2 minutes until thickened. Set aside.

Blend together the whole wheat flour, all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda and remaining 1 tablespoon brown sugar in a small bowl.

Wisk together the egg, egg white, and buttermilk in a large bowl; stir in the dry ingredients, bacon and apple until moistened. (Batter is thick)

Spoon ¼ Cup batter on the hot oiled griddle and spread out with a spoon; cook until each side is brown.

Reheat cider syrup and serve with hot pancakes.
