I’m a huge breakfast fan. I can eat scrambled eggs or pancakes anytime of day - or night. A few weeks ago when E was home, I made her and Mr.P's favorite, Apple Cinnamon Pancakes. These pancakes are a really quick and easy fix, making them ideal for a week night meal. I use the 'souped-up' recipe from the back of the Bisquick box. Out-and-out, they are by far my favorite pancake. Turning out delicious and fluffy flapjacks every time. Once the batter is mixed it can be held in the refrigerator for several hours. After pouring the batter onto a hot griddle, simply top the un-cooked pancake with any number of ingredients, making a variety of pancakes to please everyone around your table. Being foolproof, whipping up a stack takes only a matter of minutes, I’m sure glad I did! Find your perfect version and bring a smile to someone's face! Even if it's your own!
These are my families faves.... we NEVER have any leftovers!
MAKES 4 SERVINGS
- 2 cups Bisquick mix
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 tablespoons Vegetable Oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 tablespoons Sugar
- 1 cup Milk
- 2 large Eggs
- 1 large Apple, peeled and chopped
- 1/2 cup Chopped Pecans
WHAT TO DO
- Mix all ingredients until JUST mixed. Don't over mix, you want lumps. They help leaven the batter while cooking resulting in fluffier pancakes. At this point you can refrigerate batter; cover with plastic wrap.
- If you are using an electric griddle, heat to 375 degrees. If you're using a skillet, use medium heat. You know it's ready when a few drops of water sprinkled on it sizzle and disappear.
- Pour slightly less than 1/4 cup batter onto hot griddle or non-stick skillet. I use a good 1/2 of batter, just our preference.
- Sprinkle with chopped apples, pecans and cinnamon.
- Cook until edges are dry and bubbles start to form on top. Turn; cook until golden brown and cooked through.
- Serve with butter and syrup!
Tip: I like to oil my griddle with a combination of butter and Pam. Butter adds a really nice flavor to the pancakes, but butter by itself will burn too easily. Adding a bit of cooking oil spray will prevent burnt pancakes.
Notice Mr.P and E don't wait for a stack. These pancakes get eaten up as fast as I take them off of the stove. All they needed was ice cold milk and syrup. I could have gotten fancy by topping them with Apple Butter and whipped cream, but as you can see, it was not needed!
