Prep Time


Total Time



Spiced Apple Pancakes


1 cup. all-purpose flour

1 1/2 tsp. baking powder

1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, divided

1 tbsp. granulated sugar

1/2 tsp. kosher salt

4 tbsp. butter, divided, plus more for cooking

1 large egg, separated

1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

1 cup milk

4 large apples, peeled, cored, and finely chopped (about 5 to 6 cups)

1/2 c. brown sugar


    STEP - 1

    Mix flour, baking powder, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, sugar, and salt in a medium bowl. Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter. In a large bowl, whisk to combine egg yolk, vanilla, milk, and melted butter. Gently fold dry ingredients into wet ingredients until just combined, then fold in 1½ cups of chopped apple.

    STEP - 2

    In another medium bowl, using a hand mixer, beat egg white until stiff peaks form. Fold egg white into batter gently with a rubber spatula until just combined.

    STEP - 3

    Make apple topping: in a small saucepan over medium heat, melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Add remaining apples, brown sugar, remaining 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and a 1/4 cup water. Cook, stirring occasionally, until apples have softened and mixture is jammy, 10 to 15 minutes.

    STEP - 4

    In a large frying pan over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon butter. Pour about 1/4 cup pancake batter into pan. When little bubbles appear, about 1 to 2 minutes, flip and continue cooking until both sides are lightly golden. Repeat with remaining batter, adding more butter to pan as needed. Serve pancakes topped with apple mixture.
