Apple Spice Pancakes

A sweet, apple crisp like filling and topping makes these apple spice pancakes smell and taste like a cider donut. Perfect for a fall breakfast!

It’s pancake day! I don’t usually eat pancakes this often I swear, but I’m kind of playing a little game with myself of how many different seasonal iterations I can come up with. We’ve done pumpkin. Twice. So, this time around I did apples and spice (that really wasn’t meant to rhyme.)

Apple Spice Pancakes

Sweet potato and butternut squash did enter my mind, but in the end I was craving something a bit sweeter.

Spiced Apple Pancakes

It’s almost like a lazy man’s apple crisp with softened apples, brown sugar and cinnamon in and on top of the pancakes.

Apple Pancakes

The pancakes themselves aren’t super sweet, more spice-like, because the topping takes care of that. I also knew I’d be drizzling maple syrup on top.

Cinnamon Apple Pancakes

The house smelled like cider donuts when these were cooking and that was through my congested head cold nose. If that’s not impetus enough to make them, I don’t really know what else to say.

Enjoy your Sunday!

    Oh my, you had me at your description of their smell. They sound so good, I’m going to try these soon. I love how you can adapt pancakes to every season, but fall has to be the best, there are so many delicious flavors :D

    I recently came across your blog a few days ago, I gotta tell you I am really loving all the recipes you’ve posted. You’ve inspired me to bust out my wheat flour that’s been sitting in the pantry for more than 3 months! Thanx! =)
