Applesauce Pancakes

Evan and I just enjoyed what has become our standard Sunday night dinner: applesauce pancakes. These are hands down, the best pancakes ever and perfect for fall! I'll share the recipe here, even though most of you reading this are family, and are no stranger to their perfect tasty goodness : )

1.5 cups all-purpose flour (sometimes I substitute in 1/2 cup whole wheat flour for some extra fiber)
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoons salt
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 beaten eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup applesauce
2 Tablespoons butter, melted (sometimes I only use 1 T)

Stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg
Combine eggs, milk, applesauce, and butter (I use a whisk)
Add wet to dry ingredients, beating until blended.
Cook as per usual (using a good griddle is key to perfecting these, but they'll taste good any way.)
I like to eat mine with yogurt and berries, but sometimes i'll have bananas and walnuts, just plain ol' syrup, or whatever else I can think of. Great as leftovers - just pop them in the toaster! Or even eat them cold!

(Makes 18 pancakes)

I am actually making applesauce right now (first time ever!) since we still have a ton of apples from last weekend. Evan is also whipping up his version of apple crisp. I feel like we've been just stuffing ourselves with apples! Well, back to the apples, and then hopefully I will have time to post some pictures from our weekend at the lake.


  1. sounds great! i'll have to try it this week. we need to have apple themed day's a perfect time for apples.

  2. Glad those pancakes are still a favorite. The original recipe is from an old Betty Homes and Gardens Quick Breads Cook Book that I got free from the Savings and Loan that I worked at....way back in the early 80's....I don't even think you were born yet! And now it's a family favorite!

  3. Yummmm! We made these for brunch today. Even Camille loved them :) Thanks for the great recipe!
