I love this pancake recipe, just throw everything in the blender! It’s been a favorite breakfast of ours for years.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 apples - peeled, cored, and quartered
  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • ⅓ cup shortening
  • 2 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Place apples in a blender. Add milk, flour, eggs, shortening, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon and blend until well mixed, scraping down sides of blender several times.
  2. 2 Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium heat. Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto the griddle; cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, about 1 minute. Repeat with remaining batter.

  1. I’ll admit I didn’t try the original recipe first. I read reviews and went with majority. I do regret using the blender for the whole process tho. Next time I’ll use my food processor for the apples and then add all ingredients to my stand mixer bowl. I used 1.5 cups flour, 1 cup milk, - Read more ...
  2. I follow this recipe is exactly as stated, and they turned out great the only thing I changed was our used walnut milk instead of regular milk, I switch this to only two servings but it still made like 10 pancakes is very generous portions. great recipe I can't wait to make it again
  3. Very good! Made these with the Apple cinnamon syrup recipe on here, cooked exactly to what the recipe said, I used ~1/4 cup per pancake and I got 17 pancakes out of it.
  4. This thin batter is more of a Swedish pancake and should be very thin. We loved this recipe.
  5. I liked it alot but I did change it like instead of 1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour I put in 1 3/4 cups of all purpose flour and I put 1 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and only 1/ 2 teaspoon of salt and I added 3 tablespoon of brown sugar and I like - Read more ...
  6. It looked interesting to use whole apples but the batter is about as thick as water. They don't cook all the way through and burn on the outside. Very frustrating. Would NOT recommend
  7. these were great and pretty easy (if not a bit time consuming) for a novice like myself, however the amount of salt seemed quite high so i cut it in half. STILL WAY TOO SALTY! i will definitely try these again but just a pinch of salt is enough a quarter tsp at the most! - Read more ...
  8. You have to be VERY carful with the heat. It takes forever for the inside of the pancake to cook. I tried making them small and big to see which one works best but for someone who is somewhat new to making pancakes this is not a good recipe to start off with.
  9. The taste of these was really nice. Warning - watch the heat of your griddle - I usually use a 1/4 cup measure for pancakes and did so with these but the bottom tries to burn before the top is set which makes flipping them rather messy. After a couple of disasters I started making - Read more ...
