Apple Pie Pancake Apple Rings

Autumn.  The season that seems to be a favorite among people living in Indiana.  I can’t say that I disagree.  I love the changing colors of the leaves.  All those colors, I would have to say, are my favorite.  That’s probably why the walls of my home are variations of orange, red and browns.  I miss jumping in the big leaf piles like we did when I was a younger kid at home.  I can’t accumulate that many leaves in my yard where I live now.

This past Saturday my parents, my husband and I went to a local orchard to pick pumpkins and apples.  It was a perfect day outside for it.  Sunny with a little chill in the air so we just had to bundle up a bit.  And of course we got some hot apple cider to accompany us.  We walked thru the aisles of the apple trees with a red wagon and filled our bushels full of the types of apples we wanted.  Then I knew what I wanted to make first with all my apples.

Apple Pie Pancake Apple Rings

  • 1 cup pancake batter.  I made mine from Bisquick and 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. apple pie spice
  • 2 medium apples, peeled and sliced
  • syrup for topping

Prepare pancake batter according to package instructions.  Add in apple pie spice.

Peel apples and then slice into 1/4 –  1/8 inch thick slices.  (I sliced and then peeled mine).

Cut out the center of each apple slice so that there are no seeds.

Coat skillet with non-stick cooking spray.  Preheat on medium heat on stove top.

Dip each apple slice into pancake batter, coating slice completely.  Place apple slice onto warm skillet and cook until browned on each side.  This doesn’t take long.

Serve warm with syrup.  Enjoy!

I originally saw something similar to this made on a morning show recently.
