Caramel Apple Pancakes

I went to the grocery store the other day, as I do every single day of my life it seems, and they had bags and bags of apples.

Ah, yes. It’s Fall. Bring on the apple onslaught.

We’ve already done Apple Fritters, which are often served for breakfast, so let’s keep with the trend, right?

Caramel Apple Pancakes.

Yeah, buddy.

These only take an extra minute to make, too. Peel and dice your apple before mixing up your pancake batter and they can cook while your flipping the pancakes. Easy as pie. Speaking of which…I see an apple pie in all of our futures.

Caramel Apple Pancakes


For the pancakes:
1 cup all purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup buttermilk (or 3/4 cup regular milk plus 2 tablespoons vinegar - let sit for 5 minutes)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
2 tablespoons butter, melted
For the apples:
1 medium tart apple, peeled and diced
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
tiny pinch of salt
For the topping:
caramel ice cream topping, warmed


To make the pancakes:
Combine the flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl.
In a small bowl, mix together the buttermilk, vanilla, egg, and melted butter until well combined.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and whisk together until most of the lumps are gone. Do not overmix.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat and spray with cooking spray.
Pour 1/4 cup of batter into the skillet and cook until bubbles form on the surface. Flip the pancake and cook until browned on the bottom and the center is done.
For the apples:
While the pancakes are cooking, set a small skillet over medium-low heat. Add the butter to the skillet and melt.
Stir in the brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt to combine.
Add the apples and stir to coat.
Cook for 5-7 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally.
To serve:
Top the pancakes with the warm apples and drizzle the warmed caramel sauce on top.

    Don’t tell pumpkin, but caramelly-apples are my favorite fall flavor. Shhh! I’d happily wake up every morning this fall to a plate of these caramel apple pancakes. And I totally want an apple pie in my near future please!

    I’ve been trying to resist the fall baking because it’s still too hot here in Memphis, but I don’t think I can wait anymore.

    I made these this morning and wow!! So delicious! I didn’t have Caramel sauce so I doubled the butter and brown sugar in the apples to get a little extra sauce. I will be making these again and again!

    I just wanted to let you know that WOW these are just amazing and so quick and easy to whip up. I didn’t have caramel sauce but to me it didn’t need it (I also used 2 apples and doubled the caramel because I had a pitiful looking apple sitting on my counter top for weeks). This is my first time finding your blog and I’m really really excited to find that you ROCK <3 Cant wait to try more of your recipes out. Thank you very much!
