Apple Cinnamon Pancakes with Cinnamon Syrup



Once again, pancakes on the menu for dinner.  Breakfast for dinner is awesome.


The syrup for these pancakes was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.  I could have drank it with a straw!  I like to put different things IN my pancakes but I don't usually make different toppings or syrups.  That will change. This changed already very good pancakes into spectacular pancakes. 


 I loved the whole wheat flour in the pancakes too. The kids never even knew they were getting something healthy!  Shh.  I won't tell!



Apple Cinnamon Pancake Recipe
Adapted from Finding Joy in my Kitchen

Pancakes:
2 eggs
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cup milk
1 cup smashed apples (or applesauce and use less milk)
1 tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tbsp. baking powder
1 tbsp. olive oil


Syrup:
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 cup corn syrup
1/2 cup sugar
1/8 cup water
1/2 cup evaporated milk


Peel and cut about 3 - 4 apples into chunks.  Place in a bowl with a couple of tablespoons of water for about 10 minutes, until you are able to smash them with a potato masher. We left ours a bit chunky but if you want it smooth, you can put them in a food processor.


Lightly beat the two eggs in a large bowl.  Add in the flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, apples, oil and milk.  Stir until just moist.  Allow batter to sit for just a few minutes and heat your pan.


Ladle the pancake batter onto the hot pan, cook until a few bubbles form and then flip.  Cook until done. 


While pancakes are cooking away, combine all the syrup ingredients except the evaporated milk together in a saucepan.  Heat until sugar is dissolved and then bring to a slow boil for 1 - 2 minutes.  Remove from the heat and add in the evaporated milk. 


Serve pancakes with syrup.

  1. That syrup does sound good!
    I use whole wheat flour in everything. You can pretty much just take out 2T/cup of flour and things turn out fine. I like the white whole wheat or the superfine whole wheat instead of the stone ground. It's a personal preference and a texture issue.
