Easy Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

I confess, I put off going to the grocery for as long as I can.  When it gets to the point where I am scratching my head trying to come up with SOMETHING to fix for supper, I know it is time to go. 

I had this trouble one night a couple of weeks ago.  I was going to the grocery the next day, so the cupboard and fridge was almost empty.  When this happens, it is time for the pantry to take over!  Let’s see what I found that night…a package of buttermilk pancake mix, an apple, cinnamon and I had bacon in the fridge.  Hmmmm.  This looked promising.  Here is what I came up with…

1 package of buttermilk pancake mix

1 medium apple, peeled and grated

1/4 tsp cinnamon (use more if you want a stronger taste)

1 cup milk


Preheat electric griddle to about 350 or medium-high.  Pour pancake mix into a medium bowl, then add grated apple and cinnamon.


Add milk and stir to combine just until everything is mixed.  Do not overmix.


Pour about 1/4 cup of batter on the griddle and cook until bubbles form on top and the edges of the pancakes are set.  Flip and cook until golden on both sides.

I served these with butter and warmed syrup with bacon on the side.  Enjoy!!
