Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Servings 18 pancakes


  • 4 Granny Smith apples
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 TBSP. cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla for pancake batter
  • Pancake batter of choice I use New Hope Mills Buttermilk pancake mix


  • Peel your apples and slice them very thin. Then chop the slices again into little 1/4 inch pieces or use a chopper like this one and chop them using the smallest attachment.
  • Add the chopped apples, butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon to a saucepan and cook until they are tender, stirring frequently.
  • Make your pancake batter and add in 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla. I made one and a half batches of pancake batter which was 3 cups of dry mix.
  • Preheat a frying pan or griddle over medium heat, then spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Pour a large scoop of apples (a 1/4 cup or a little less), onto the hot griddle and spread out, then pour the batter by 1/3 cupfuls on top of the apples.
  • Cook the bottom side of the pancake and then flip the pancake gently and cook the other side for an additional 1-2 minutes or until the bottom is golden brown.
  • Continue process until the batter is gone.
  • Then top your pancakes with butter and maple syrup and enjoy!
