Silver Dollar Apple Cinnamon Pancakes


I hope all the Mother's out there had a wonderful day yesterday.  We had a FULL weekend.  The husband usually works every stinking weekend, so of course the first weekend he has off in ages, we cram about 4,000 things into it.

We finally tucked the kids in bed last night at 9 p.m. {way past their bedtime} so I'm just bracing for a nightmare day later today as they'll be recovering.  I'm not sure about your kids but ours are kept on a pretty tight schedule, so when busy, busy days are thrown into the mix, we all seem, well....a little off the next day.

Which usually includes tantrums and timeouts.


But, pancakes always cheer the kiddos up.  {And the adults}.  I used my basic Paula Deen version pancake, but switched up the ingredients a bit.  We always have unsweetened applesauce in our fridge and we love cinnamon on most anything - so why not merry the two together, right?

Then I made them silver dollar size, as the kids love that, plus it looks like we make a ton!  They are easy to keep in the fridge until the next breakfast, or freeze if you know they won't be eaten up right away.

Also, great slathered with peanut butter.

Just sayin'.



Did you know that when the husband is around during pancake making, he likes to take the reins for a round or two to make gooey-doughy pancakes?

I usually sit on the sidelines gagging.

He'll let them cook fully on one side, but when he flips the pancake, I swear he only lets it cook about a nano-second, before he flips it onto his plate.  He loves to eat them all doughy.

I'm not sure if this is even safe?


Cook these however you like.  Fully-cooked {like me} or still doughy {like the husband}.  I honestly hope you do not pick the latter.

Silver Dollar Apple Cinnamon Pancakes
3/4 c. unsweetened applesauce
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla
1 1/2 t. cinnamon
1/4 c. sugar
2 t. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
1 3/4 c. buttermilk
2 c. flour

In a large mixing bowl combine applesauce, eggs, vanilla and buttermilk.  Sift together all remaining dry ingredients and combine with the wet ingredients.  Fold gently to combine.

In a hot skillet, melt some butter and spoon a small doll-up of batter into the pan, cooking on one side until bubbles form and pop.  Flip and continue cooking for 30 seconds or until bottom is also golden brown.

Serve with desired toppings.


I'm so mad we ate up all these pancakes in less than two days.  The Little Miss was downing about 5 each sitting and then still asking for more.  I made her stop, only for the fear that she might explode.

What is one food your kids cannot get enough of?

  2. Delicious! I also can't help but notice the maple praline syrup in the background - I have that same syrup in my fridge right now! It's so tasty. :-)

    I don't have kids, but when I was a kid, I couldn't get enough of perogies! They were definitely my favourite food.

  4. I had to laugh because I love silver dollar pancakes - my Dad used to make them growing up. The first time I made them for my husband, he was like "why are they so tiny??!!" But ew to the gooey ones!
