Old Fashioned Pancakes with Caramelized Apples

Sometimes it’s the simple recipes that steal my heart.  The ones that are so classic, so familiar, just so…..right.  It’s a given that everyone loves pancakes (well, everyone who’s anyone).  And if you don’t, this is your chance.  For the love of breakfast! 

These pancakes are derived from one of my favorite pancake recipes from a gal named Dakota Kelly. 

Old Fashioned Pancakes

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted

Caramelized Apples

  • 4 apples peeled and cored, such as golden delicious
  • 1/4 cup butter, unsalted
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar

 For Pancakes: In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and cinnamon. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg, vanilla and melted butter; mix until smooth.

Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.

For Apples: Slices apples and melt butter in sauce pan over medium-high heat. Add apples and saute for about 4 minutes. Add sugar and cook until they are golden brown and tender.

  1. My favorite!

    I only look for that special, “never seen before” Pecan Pie Recipe. I’m sure it’s in your anima somewhere. …even if you haven’t found it yet.

    But, I’ll wait.


  2. The consistency of these pancakes are what we would call crumpets or flapjacks. We know pancakes are those thin little fellows – what a lot of people would call crepes I guess. Either way, these are top of the list for a weekend breakfast!

    I tried this recipe a few days ago and I have to say it is absolutely delicious, and I think there a many more things you can use this dough for.
    Thanks for this amazing recipe!
