Thursday Recipe - Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

Pancakes came up on a discussion board recently over at Bestsellerbound, apple cinnamon ones in particular. So, because authors need to feed their brains, here's the recipe. And if you've got a few minutes, please check out BestsellerBound - Lots of fun authors and readers and a fun community with great discussions on just about everything.

I serve these for dinner many days because they're fast, easy, and filling. Who says pancakes are only for breakfast? Not me. *cheesy grin*

Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

1 c. white flour
1 c. whole wheat flour
2 T. brown sugar
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. nutmeg
1/2 t. ginger
2 eggs
1 c. orange juice
2 T. oil
1 c. finely chopped apple, leave the peel on

Mix all the dry ingredients together (flour through ginger on the list). Add the rest. Stir just until blended. If too thick, add a bit more orange juice.

Cook on a medium hot griddle for about 3 minutes per side. Serve with sliced bananas, hot blueberry sauce, and whipped topping.

Hot Blueberry Sauce

2 c. frozen blueberries
1/4 c. sugar
1/4 t. cinnamon
2 T. cornstarch
1/2 c. water

Mix blueberries, sugar, cinnamon, and cornstarch in a medium saucepan. Add water. Stir well. Cook over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil, stir constantly or it will burn. Boil and stir for one minute. It should be quite thick. Serve warm.


  1. Looking back- I really don't remember EVER eating pancakes for breakfast more than once or twice a year. We ate them quite frequently for brunch, lunch, elevensies, afternoon snacks, dinner, and the ever popular midnight snack.

    Maybe that's because it takes a really long time to cook pancakes for a horde of locusts...

  2. You never got pancakes for breakfast, except on Saturdays and holidays, because I was usually up most of the night with a baby. I refuse to get up at 6:30 am to cook breakfast when I've only had three hours of sleep. Now I'm just lazy and don't want to deal with it. Besides, it's good for you kids to learn to get your own breakfast. If you want pancakes, you know where the griddle is...


Keep it clean, keep it nice.
