apple cinnamon pancakes*

Another recipe, I know, I know! The weather is getting cold and when that happens I really like being in the kitchen.  Here is a great recipe that is easy and uses everyday ingredients.  I like to mix the batter up, take my morning walk, come back and put these on the griddle.  A cup of hot coffee goes well with them.

apple cinnamon pancakes

1/2 c all-purpose flour
1/2 c whole wheat flour
1 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
2 t cinnamon
1 c soymilk
1 T canola oil
1 medium peeled and grated tart apple
1/4 c walnuts

combine first 5 ingredients in bowl.  add soymilk and oil, mix and then fold in grated apple and walnuts.
let batter sit for at least 1/2 hour.  spoon onto hot oiled griddle.  flip when small bubbles appear on top.
drizzle with warm maple syrup.

  1. I think I know what I'm making for breakfast this weekend!

  2. Janet, this is a crazy great picture!
    Can you believe I have never made pancakes before...I never even made them for my kids. I'm afraid of the griddle! :) Shall I try this on Sunday morning....I did try your last recipe and it was superb.

    Salvation Army is coming today, the whole front yard is again filled with giveaways. Some people have even stopped and taken things right from my yard!

    Talk to you soon ~

  3. Dear Janet, Apple and Cinnamon are, in my view a marriage made in heaven. your pancakes look and, I am sure, taste absolutely delicious. Food is, I believe, notoriously difficult to photograph well, but your images just look mouthwateringly brilliant!!

  4. I want a bite right now!! Such a fab photo my friend.

  5. Um .... yummy!

    BTW, Janet, do you have a great vegan gravy recipe? I found one online (I'm craving biscuits and gravy), but I'm not sure yet...

  6. Wow, I am definitely trying this recipe.

  7. Hi J
    I'm in Europe can you believe it? It is cold but so fun. I am online for about another week so email me all your news to -can't wait to hear about all the stuff we have got to catch up on! Met Our Blighty she was lovely x

  8. It's hard to believe that soy milk alone will set them without egg replacer. They look awesome but what has impaled your poor cakes?

  9. OK... You're killing me! That looks soooooooooo good! Can you come over & cook for me? Wouldn't that be fun!
    My son this morning only wanted pancakes... I didn't show him yours because I knew he would want yours!!! lol Yummy. Thanks for sharing...


  10. Pancakes are superior comfort food...and your post is like a warm hug...
    just what I needed this morning.

    Thank you!

  11. My husband is off work tomorrow for Veterans' Day and I was just thinking about what kind of cozy, yummy, fall-like breakfast I would make for him. I have all the ingredients and will whip this up tomorrow morning. Thanks Janet!

  12. Yum. Where have you been? Surely not over cooking and eating?

  13. Having just rolled out of bed, nothing sounds more delicious than your yummy apple cinnamon pancakes! We've been making a lot of buckwheat pancakes here - they're really earthy (dense) but maple syrup makes everything taste perfect.

  14. Oh yum! Thanks for the recipe and delicious and stylish looking photo.

  15. Oh, how I love pancakes. I'm usually partial to blueberry, but this is a nice choice for fall.

  16. beautiful! no kidding, just this morning I walked through the kitchen door and said to Ryan, "as soon as our kitchen works again, I am making pancakes!"

    and now i'll have your yummy recipe to try!

    how did you manage that photograph?

  17. Now I know what to do with our last home grown apple.
    Thank you!

    PS Lovely photo

  18. Thanks! They look really yum :)
    Do you think they'd taste ok with Oat milk instead of soy?

  26. Thank YOU! Not only do I look forward to making these delicious pancakes, I ESPECIALLY look forward to your coming-soon Thanksgiving menu!
