I had some cider that was getting sour (hardening?) and I always use powdered milk for cooking and thought why not give it a try? So we had pancakes made with powdered milk and apple cider instead of liquid milk. Surprisingly yummy!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Sift flour, powdered milk, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and baking soda together in a bowl. Whisk apple cider, 1/4 cup vegetable oil, and eggs together in a separate bowl. Stir apple cider mixture into flour mixture until batter is just combined.

  • Heat 1 teaspoon vegetable oil in a griddle over medium-high heat. Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto the griddle and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

Cook's Note:

If you prefer a thinner pancake, add a bit of water or more cider to the batter.

Griddle is hot enough when a drop of water skitters across it.

I cut this recipe in half for a trial run just to see if we liked it before I made a full batch. In a half batch I did increase the baking powder to a full teaspoon and the baking soda to a half teaspoon. I also used a teaspoon of apple pie spice instead of plain cinnamon. I did use a good quality apple cider as well. The kids thought these were great--they ate all six pancakes. Thumbs up--this recipe's a keeper. Read More

My family loves anything Apple. But these pancakes were disappointing. The apple flavor was barely detectable they were thin and elastic. I think this recipe has potential. Read More

Makes a nice smooth pancake not too sweet. Good use for leftover apple cider. Read More

This recipe has potential but needs tweaking. I followed this recipe to the letter my review is based on the way it is written and how they turned out without modifications. The batter was very thin so I added a little more flour (the only change) and what I ended up with were pancakes that had no rise at all and were a bit rubbery. These pancakes were not even remotely "fluffy". On the positive side it did have a nice subtle apple-cinnamon flavor. This recipe definitely needs more baking soda and baking powder to get a better rise and some additional flour. I won't be making this again instead I think I'll just go back to my tried and true pancake recipe and add some apple pie spice. Read More
