Pancake Apple Rings

Yay it's Sunday! 

That is what you will here almost every Sunday in my house. 

Why? You may ask

Well I will tell you. 


I love to try new version of this weekend staple. So when I found this it was an instant hit! 

The younger kids call them "Breakfast Donuts". Mainly because anything that's round with a hole that you eat is a Donut. 

So give them a go..

Pancake Apple Rings


2 medium Granny Smith apples, pared and cored
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup milk 
1/2 cup cinnamon sugar


Slice apples crosswise into 1/8" thick rings. (a mandolin slicer works great for this)

Whisk together flour, baking power, baking soda and salt. Beat in eggs and buttermilk (or sour milk), mixing just until incorporated.

Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat and grease lightly. Dip apple rings into cinnamon sugar then into batter and allow excess batter to drip off. If the batter is too thick, add more milk, one tablespoon at a time, until it is thick enough to stick to the apple ring, but thin enough to have excess drip off. You might want to cook a test apple ring to make sure the batter is to your liking before adding too much milk.

Cook apple rings on skillet until golden brown, turning once. Skillet temperature is important here because if the skillet is too hot, the outside dough will burn before the apple inside starts to soften. Once again, you'll probably want to try a test apple ring and adjust the skillet temperature before cooking a bunch of rings at once.

Serve immediately with maple syrup.

  1. I would love these! I like pancakes but sometimes I find them too heavy to even finish one...I'm not a huge fan of doughy breakfast foods but I want to give this recipe a try!

    1. Oh please do! They are not heaven or doughy at all!! More warm apple then anything else!
