Pumpkin pie apple ring pancakes

6 October 2018 | Last Updated: 24 September 2020

Apple ring pancakes are a very traditional small dessert in my family, they are served mostly for breakfast. I added a twist to the recipe by adding pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice to the batter. They came out really delicious! The pancakes are fluffy, smell wonderful, and have a beautiful color thanks to the pumpkin puree. The pumpkin flavor is only slightly noticeable. They are super tasty and children love them!

How to make apple ring pancakes step by step:

STEP 1: Peel the apples and core, using an apple core cutter (shown on the photo) or a sharp knife. Cut into 5-7 mm / ¼ inch slices, pour the lemon juice over, set aside.

STEP 2: Make the pumpkin pie pancake batter: Add the egg, pumpkin puree, vanilla extract, honey, oil, and milk to a large bowl, whisk together. Then add the flour, baking powder, salt, and pumpkin pie spice or gingerbread spice mix to the bowl, whisk until smooth (but don’t overmix the batter).

STEP 3: Dunk ench apple ring into batter, allowing the runoff to fall back into the bowl.

STEP 4: Cook the pancakes: Heat clarified butter in a frying pan, preferably with a non-stick coating, over medium heat. Wait until bubbles form on a batter, then flip over. Cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side until golden.

STEP 5: Serve! Sprinkle with powdered sugar (the pancakes should be slightly cooled) or with vanilla or cinnamon sugar (the pancakes should be warm). Enjoy!

Storing tips:

These apple ring pancakes taste best fresh after cooking, but can also be reheated on the next day. Reheat them over low heat in a non-stick pan, on both sides, until warm. You can warm them up without oil or just lightly brush the pan with butter.
