I love our breakfast for dinner nights. Pancakes and waffles are a favorite of ours. We love breakfast foods just not for breakfast. Experimenting with flavored pancakes and waffles is something my family loves. These apple cinnamon pancakes were from apples that were over ripe to eat but perfect for cooking. They were just a bit mushy but not browned so the kids didn’t like them. I mixed them into the batter and we had apple cinnamon pancakes!
Verdict: These pancakes remind me of fresh apple pie. I love them. Some butter and maple syrup and I am happy! My kids sprinkle a bit of butter and brown sugar over theirs to eat. However you like to top them they are yummy!
Add a side of cut fruit makes the meal complete.
