I was looking for a fun recipe for a weekend breakfast for the kids. My son loves pancakes, but I wanted to give him something a little more nutritious. With that in mind, these apple stuffed pancakes came to be. He absolutely loved them! If you have kids, or if you are a pancake lover, put these apple stuffed pancakes on the menu.
This is a super easy recipe. You can use your favorite apples and your favorite pancake batter. This will take only minutes to make, and you likely already have these ingredients at home.
Start by peeling and slicing your apples. I used gala apples, but any apple will do. Once you’ve sliced them, cut out the core. I used a small, round cookie cutter, but you can certainly use an apple core tool, or just a knife.
Mix your pancake mix and water to make a batter. I prefer Birch Benders pancake mix, but any will do. Dip each apple ring into the batter, making sure they are coated, and pan fry them, like you would any other pancake. Flip after a minute or two, and cook the other side. Do this with each of your apple rings.
Dust your apple stuffed pancakes with powdered sugar, drizzle with maple syrup and garnish with your favorite fruit. We used strawberries because it is what we had on hand.
Make as many of these as you would like, as they are great for a crowd!
