Apple pancake rings make a great snack, party treat or breakfast. If you love homemade pancakes with apples, you’ll love these apple pancake rings. Apple slices dipped in pancake batter and then fried – yeah, it’s delicious!
I love when I can add fruit to things. Here’s a pictorial.
Apple Pancake Rings
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
- ¼ cup ground flax seed
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 2 Tbsp brown sugar
- 1 Tbsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 2 Tbsp canola oil
- 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 5-6 apples Granny Smith, Ambrosia, Gala
- In large bowl, stir together dry ingredients.
- In separate bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, oil and vanilla. Pour into dry ingredients and stir just until moistened.
- Wash apples. If using apple peeling/slicing machine, core and slice apples into rounds. Peeling is optional. Or use an apple corer to remove core from center of apple then cut apples into 1/4 inch thin slices horizontally to form circles.
- Dip apple slices (4 to 5 at a time) into batter. Use a fork to lift apples out allowing some of the batter to drip off so center holes do not fill with batter. Place rings on hot, lightly greased griddle or fry pan.
- When the top side starts to look dry, flip and cook the other side until golden.
- Make regular pancakes with any remaining batter.
Toppings for Your Apple Pancake Rings
I often serve pancakes, especially these apple pancake rings without syrup. Instead we serve them with fruit compote, yogurt, strawberry freezer jam or even just a sprinkling of icing sugar and a squeeze of lemon.
Thank you Pinterest for giving me the idea to try these.
These apple pancake rings are easy to make and can be eaten on the run (best to leave the syrup!). They made a great offering at IBEX Payroll‘s Bike to Work Day Pit Stop. Here Spencer and I are whipping up a batch outside using the electric frying pan.
