So pancakes usually just do nothing for me. They usually just feel heavy in my stomach and are a bit sweet with syrup on them. Rarely do I make them and if I do I want good pancakes by scratch. When looking for a new recipe to try I came across Mom’s Applesauce Pancakes Recipe – Allrecipes.com. I found this last year just after I had finished canning about 25 quarts of applesauce.
My kids loved this recipe and enjoy eating them both fresh and cold for snack later in the day. The smell alone as they cook is like a fresh apple pie in the oven. A bit of maple syrup is pretty tasty on this apple cinnamon flavored cake. Unlike the original recipe which can be made with boxed pancake mix, I have altered the recipe to be completely homemade.
- 1 1/2 cup flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 3 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 Tbs sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 2 Tbs butter, melted
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 1 cup applesauce
- 1 1/4 cup milk
Combine flour, salt, sugar, and cinnamon. Whisk until combined well.
Add in remaining ingredients and whisk until smooth. If the batter is thick for your liking, simply add a bit more milk.
Prepare as you would any other pancake batter. I cook mine on my electric skillet set to 350 degrees or in a pan over medium heat. Cook pancakes until bubbles form on the cake and flip, continue to cook about 1 minute more.
