Apple Cider Pancakes

apple cider pancakes

My daughter was given a small bottle of pure Maple syrup by her friend, Allison, who visited Vermont.  She didn’t want to use it on just any old “ordinary” pancakes.  Allison also loves to cook and has some really great ideas, so my daughter asked if she had an especially good recipe for pancakes.  She recommended these Apple Cider Pancakes.  They sounded awesome and we were anxious to try it.

We love purchasing apple cider this time of year because it reminds us of the cool crisp weather in Pennsylvania, visiting the apple orchards, or picking out our Christmas tree.  Apple Cider Pancakes sounded like a real seasonal breakfast treat!  

Here’s the Recipe:

  • 2 cups flour all-purpose flour (White Lily if at all possible)
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 3 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon (yes, tablespoon)
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

*The original recipe called for more nutmeg but I prefer less*

    When should I add vanilla? With wet ingredients, or just before cooking? Or does it not matter? Thank you.

      Hi Katie,

      So sorry, I didn’t realize I left that out. Thanks for bringing that to my attention! I’d add it with the other wet ingredients at the beginning, mostly to avoid over-mixing at the end…but if you forget it (like I did) you could still add it then.
      Have a blessed day and thanks for stopping by!
