Apple Ring Pancakes

APPLE RING PANCAKESBreakfast for dinner is comfort food, don’t you think? I do.

This particular recipe includes fruit, making it a wee bit healthier than plain old pancakes.

That might be wishful thinking.

I like to serve these pancakes with an omelet or sausage patties and a dish of diced apples. They are delicious, and pairing them with protein and raw apples makes a perfect dinner.

  • 1-2 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 cup prepared pancake mix
  • ¾ cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  1. Peel and core the apples. Slice into ½" rounds.
  2. Pour water into a mixing bowl. Add vanilla and pancake mix; whisk until smooth.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Place one apple slice in the butter and pour about ¼ cup of pancake mix over top, until it just covers the apple slice.
  4. Cook pancake until bubbles begin to form and edges dry out. Flip. Sprinkle with cinnamon and cook another minute or two.
  5. When pan begins to dry, add remaining butter and melt in the skillet.
  6. Serve with additional butter and syrup.

    Have you tried freezing or refrigerating these? I wonder how well they’d keep. I’d love to do a batch or two to have for my kiddos’ breakfasts.

      We do freeze our pancakes to reheat later. Just lay them in a single layer on a sheet of waxed paper on top of a cookie sheet. When they’re frozen solid, you can stack and put them in a zip top bag. Reheat for about 30 seconds in the microwave. :)

    These sound great! I love to add fruit to stuff since my kids barely eat any veggies anymore. Fruits the next best thing I think! Btw, I liked you on FB as my page and as myself :)
