Fried Apple Pancake Rings

Has anyone seen the new talk show The Chew?  I am able to catch it on Mondays and Fridays when I'm not working, and so far love it!  They seem to have endless ideas on cooking and home decorating, along with the latest trends in both.

This recipe comes courtesy of The Chew.  It's a new twist on the usual pancake.  Your kids will devour them, and more than likely you'll eat a few yourself.  With apples in peak season right now, here is another way to use them up.

Fried Apple Pancake Rings
3-4 apples, cored, peeled, sliced to 1/8" thick
pancake batter
1 t. pumpkin pie spice
1 t. cinnamon
maple syrup

Using your favorite pancake batter, add pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon.  Dip apple slices into batter, coating all slides.  Cook like a pancake, one minute the first side, about 30 seconds after you flip. Serve with your favorite maple syrup or top with powdered sugar.

After shouting out on Facebook last night, "What should we have for dinner?".  The resounding answer was pancakes.  So here was our version - delicious!

The rest of today is all about housekeeping and watching football (Go Hawks!).  The little miss gets baptized in the morning, so we'll be busy with family and friends tomorrow, with a yummy breakfast spread I hope to share for you - simple and easy, yet scrumptous.

Here's a double sided question for you...

What are you doing today and where are you from?

I love hearing what people's weekend plans are and where they hail from.  Oregon?  Florida?  North Carolina?  Canada?

Would you like to comment?

  1. I'll have to DVR that show - love the idea of this! You know I am from Illinois :D

  2. Oh wow this is so fun!! I love it!! Thank you for sharing Ally :)

    I'm in North Carolina now. Our weekend plans today included lots of volunteer work for a non-profit music program. I'm in charge of the reception and J is doing the programs. Tomorrow I have to help my mom ebay some more stuff for wedding funds and we get to watch Dexter!! :) It flew by way too fast and J doesn't have off Monday :(

    I am from Illinois - I haven't taped that show either, but I will have to check it out! Love the apple pancake rings!!

  4. I have been wanting to check out the show. These look delicious! It was a quiet baking weekend here in South Carolina.


  5. Yum! This looks good! I'm surprised at how much pancake batter it looks like stuck to your apple slices. Was it hard to get that much batter to stay on??

    Today I went to sunday school, church, and out to lunch with my family. Homemade chili for dinner!
    And I'm from Kansas.

  6. So fun! I haven't seen the show, but am willing to bet I'll love it if it features recipes like this :)

  7. Hey Megan! The batter stuck on to the apples very well, I think a semi-thick batter helped?
