Warm Apple Pie Pancakes are the perfect thing for a Fall breakfast or brunch. With hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, & clove, these stacks are topped with a warm sauteed apple syrup. It’s a whole some dish, with just the right amount of sweet thrown in. Get your apple pie fix, without all the work since it’s not just for dessert anymore.
How’ve you been enjoying #AppleWeek so far? Have you seen the sheer number of yummy recipes going live this week? It’s been an awesome mix of sweet, savory, and plenty more that are a beautiful blend of the two.
We’ve tried to bring you a fair mix, with hopefully a little something for everyone.
Apples are a great snack all by themselves. Shoot- slice ’em up and sere them with a slab of peanut butter, and my kids think they’re eating the greatest snack ever imagined.
Apples are so much more than that though. We’re no strangers to incorporating them into every meal of the day.
Breakfast, lunch, dinner– even snacks and desserts. Apples are a treasure trove when it comes to recipes they’re made for.
Take Breakfast for example, we love a good Caramel Apple Stuffed Waffle. Or even a Healthy Applesauce & Oat Muffin. Lunch? Well, I’m gonna have to recommend the Apple, Red Onion, & Cheddar Panini on Naan Bread. Or if you’re looking for something ‘greener’ the Spinach, White Cheddar, Apple Salad with Nuts, Berries & A Honey Cider Vinaigrette.
Dinner’s a no brainer- Pan Fried Chicken with Apple Cider Gravy or the equally easy Sausage, Apple, And Herb Sheet Pan Supper. Snack or Dessert, a yummy Apple Pie Taquito or a thick slice of Apple Walnut Bread both fit the bill nicely.
So it totally felt appropriate that we should end this year’s Apple Week with a recipe that could and should be enjoyed for any meal of the day.
It’s a meal for the people, whatever their craving may be. It is called Apple Pie Pancakes, and it is a meal for the ages. All ages!
Moist and fluffy pancakes tasting, and smelling, lightly of cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove are piled high in stacks.
Meanwhile diced apples are sauteed in a simple sauce of butter and brown sugar, creating the perfect simple syrup with soft apples spread lovingly over the stacks and dripping lazily down the sides.
It creates such a pretty picture, you almost don’t want to cut into these lovely Apple Pie Pancakes. Almost.
In the end, you’ll end up cutting into your stack just fine. Because let’s be real, it’s that, or dive face first into the plateful. Whether you choose to enjoy them for the first meal of the day or the last, they’re the best way to enjoy a sweet apple treat.
Apple Pie ain’t just for dessert anymore, folks!
