This delicious recipe is perfect for our Sabbath morning breakfast. One recipe is never enough for my family. The pancakes are always moist and nutritious. I recommend these pancakes to be eaten with hot cinnamon syrup!

I altered these to make them less caloric, and they still came out fabulous! My daughter loved them. I substituted 2 Tbsp. Splenda for the sugar, 1/8 c. applesauce for half of the butter, two egg whites for the one egg and used nonfat milk. I also doubled the cinnamon. I ate mine completely plain - was almost like dessert instead of breakfast! Read More

Too dense for a pancake in my opinion. But I doubled the apple so I compensated by almost doubling the flour (whole wheat) which made it thick and hard to flatten so I added another egg. I thought I could skimp on the sugar but DON'T. And I'd QUADRUPLE the cinnamon. It's not very cinnamonny at all! I'll try it again following the recipe exactly and re-rate. Read More

Great recipe! I added a bit more cinnamon like other reviews suggested and added a tbsp or so more splenda on top of the pancakes. I discovered they need to cook quick to be fluffy, on medium high heat. If you cook them too slow, they will turn out dense. Will definitely make again. Thank you! Read More

So so good! I've made this twice already and everyone in the family really loves it. I've just used one apple each time. Once it was a little over a cup once a little under and both times it turned out fine. I grate the apple with the skin still on and you don't really notice it. My only very slight complaint is that I usually make double recipes of pancakes and freeze the extra so I can just pop them in the toaster in the morning for a quick breakfast for my toddlers. Well for some reason these don't taste very good reheated. Oh well it's worth making fresh whenever we need some apple pancakes! Thanks for the yummy recipe! Read More

These were really tasty! I made them for Sunday morning breakfast for my kids along with Orange Smoothies (also found on allrecipes)and they just loved it. I also used my food processor to grate the appples - what a timesaver. The pancakes are very dense and the apples really give this recipe that extra something special. Read More

Very simple to make in the morning. Great tasting if you don't use cinnamon syrup they could definitely use more cinnamon in the batter. Read More

These were great! I chopped the apple into tiny little pieces instead of shredding. It gave the pancakes a nice texture. I also followed the advice of other reviewers and doubled the cinnamon and sugar. Served them with whipped cream. Yum:) Read More

Wonderful pancakes! Here's my tweak: I tossed finely chopped apple with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar while I prepped the rest of the batter (I added a pinch of salt to the dry ingredients). Then I folded the cinnamon apples into the batter. Cold leftover pancakes made a great after-school snack today because the apples made the pancakes moist and tasty even without butter and syrup. Yeah baby! Read More
