Apple Pumpkin PancakesApple Pumpkin Pancakes – the Ultimate Fall Recipe!

It’s finally Fall. In fact, yesterday (Saturday) was the first official day of Fall. And in St. Louis where I live it finally feels like Fall.

If you know me at all, maybe you’ve heard me mention how much I hate summer and that my favorite time of year is Fall.

You might imagine how happy I am now that the St. Louis weather has shifted and the heat is gone, replaced by cool, crisp weather.

I love it. I love Fall clothing, I love Fall baking, I love Fall… well, everything.

Apple Pumpkin Pancakes Recipe

Fall makes me think of apples and pumpkins, making caramel apples, carving pumpkins with the kids,  sipping hot apple cider and roasting marshmallows around a bonfire in my backyard, making pumpkin pie or even pumpkin pancakes.

I think of the leaves changing and then falling to the ground and the crunch they make beneath our shoes when we walk. I can smell pumpkin pie baking when I think of Fall. I think of corn stalks and mazes. This really is my favorite time of year.

Our theme this week is Apples. And while many people think of Apples first when they think of Fall, I actually don’t. I think of Pumpkins.

It’s the time of year where my kitchen is almost always filled with the sweet scent of pumpkin baking from Pumpkin French Toast to Pumpkin Pie Donut Muffins.

And I hit the savory side of things as well, with a delicious Pumpkin Ravioli that is coming up this week.

Don’t get me wrong, I love apples too. One of our favorite, quick go-to snacks are these Easy Apple Dumplings.

So when the theme popped up, I thought why don’t I combine the two delicious flavors – pumpkin and apple – and create a recipe with both. The ultimate (if you will) Fall recipe. I already had the pumpkin pie pancake recipe,  I just needed to add the apples and make sure it would work.  

Oh, and it did. It was most definitely Fall on a plate smothered in delicious maple syrup.

So I present to you, these delicious Apple Pumpkin Pancakes I made this week.

Note: If you don’t have Pumpkin Pie Spice, you can substitute the Pumpkin Pie Spice with

  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves

I know I already have a ton of pancake recipes on my blog, but this one that tastes a little like pumpkin pie with the sweet, tart flavor of apples, really is wonderful this time of year.

  • ¾ cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 Tablespoons pumpkin pie spice
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tablespoons butter melted
  • 3 Tablespoons canned pumpkin
  • 1 cup chopped apple


  • Measure out the milk. Add the vinegar. Allow to sit for about 5 minutes. If you have buttermilk you can use ¾ cup of that instead. I love buttermilk but I rarely have any so I just do it this way.
  • In a bowl, combine the flour, the sugar, the baking powder, the baking soda, pumpkin pie spice and the salt.
  • After five minutes has passed, whisk the egg and the butter into the soured milk. Add the canned pumpkin and whisk again.
  • Pour the flour mixture into the pumpkin mixture whisk until lumps are gone. At this point, you can see whether you need more liquid or more flour. (this will probably depend somewhat on how much pumpkin you used) Add milk and/or flour by Tablespoons until you are happy with the consistency. (usually I just leave it as is, but in case you like a different texture batter).
  • Mix in the cup of chopped apple.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat or a griddle set to 360 degrees, and coat with cooking spray. Pour ¼ cup of batter onto the skillet or griddle, and cook until bubbles begin to appear on the surface.
  • Flip ONLY once with a spatula, and cook until golden on the other side.
  • Remove from griddle/skillet and serve.
  • Top with whipped cream and some pumpkin pie spice or syrup.

    1. Happened to be what I had at the house. I use green apples for most baking related projects because they usually retain their quality and taste through high temps. I don’t think it would hurt to use another type of apple, but some will get a little mushy at higher temps.
