When I saw this idea of adding a streusel topping over the pancakes I really wanted to give them a try. Apples are one of my family favorites so this apple crisp pancakes sounded like a wonderful healthy delicious treat.
I must say these apple crisp pancakes are the best pancakes I have ever had.They are really fluffy and so flavorful, with chunks of soft apples inside and the best part of all is the crispy streusel topping. The sugar gets caramelized and crispy while cooking. Such a great texture and taste, I will be making these again and again.
Whenever you are craving for pancakes I highly recommend these delicious recipe. They are so good that you can even serve them as they are without any maple syrup or whipped cream on top though any of these toppings would make them even more tempting.
Recipe slightly adapted after BettyCrocker
Apple Crisp Pancakes
- 1/4 cup (50g) brown sugar
- 1/4 cup (30g) flour
- 1/4 cup (25g) oats
- 3 tbsp (45g) butter
- 1/2 tsp (2g) cinnamon
- 1 ¼ cups (160g) flour
- 1 tbsp (15g) sugar
- 1/2 tsp (2g) salt
- 1 ½ tsp (6g) baking powder
- 1/2 tsp (2g) cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp (1g) nutmeg
- 1 egg
- 1 cup (240ml) milk
- 2 tbsp (28g) vegetable oil
- 1 cup apple , peeled and diced (about 1 apple))
- Prepare the streusel. In a medium bowl, mix brown sugar, flour, oats and cinnamon. Cut in butter using a pastry blender or fork until mixture is crumbly. Set aside.
- Prepare the pancake batter. In another bowl, mix flour with sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add egg, milk and oil. Mix until smooth.
- Peel and dice the apple and combine with pancake batter.
- Heat a nonstick pan over medium high heat. For each pancake, pour 1/4 cupful batter onto hot pan. Sprinkle each pancake evenly with 2 tablespoons of Streusel mixture. You can press the streusel slightly to stick better to the pancake. Cook for about 2 to 3 minutes or until bubbly on top and dry around edges. Turn and cook on the other side until light golden brown around edges about 2 or 3 minutes more.
- Drizzle with maple syrup, honey, or top with whipped cream.

Apple crisp is one of my favorite desserts. This totally takes it to the next level! And makes it breakfast appropriate 🙂

I love apple crisp and pancakes, and these pancakes sound like the best of both worlds! Lovely idea. 🙂
I love apple pancakes and these look awesome! Need to make some soon! Pinning 🙂
Apple desserts are truly some of my favorites—so your apple crisp pancakes MUST be the best pancakes! I can’t think of any I’d rather eat 🙂
Streusel on top of pancakes!!!!! Such a great idea!
Pancake perfection! My daughter has recently become obsessed with pancakes (especially blueberry) and she loves apples (“apple” was actually her 3rd word after “mama” and “dada”) so I know she would devour these beauties!
Let me know if you try them out for your daughter. It is good she loves the blueberry ones too, my little ones are quite avoiding dishes with blueberries lately.
This looks amazing, have you tried them with other fruits? I am thinking Peach or Blueberry may be as scrumptious too?
Didn't try.. but both blueberries and peach sound wonderful. I can hardly wait to try once they are in season.
Could you please add measurements in grams or dcl – beside cups/tsp/tbsp… If you could do that in every recipe, it would be great. Thank you.
Did it for brunch without the streusel and both my boys could not believe how wonderful the taste was. Thank you.
I am so glad to hear that Noula.. I am sure they were delicious
The best way to use my apples before they rot!!
The idea of using streussel, unique!!!
Now, the only way to improve them is to substitute 1/4 of the pancake flour with flaxseed meal and add 1/4 more of milk and let the pancake mix sit for 15 minutes so the flaxseed does its magic. Also, you can add half a spoon of unflavored psyllium in order to make them more fluffy.
By the way, here, for the pancake mix, you use baking powder, whereas in the youtube video you use yeast!! I will try both, with yeast, and instead of baking powder, I will use sodium bicarbonate in order to avoid any aluminates!!!
What a delicious recipe ! Thank you so much, all my family was delighted by these pancakes
Just had this for breakfast today. Didn’t change a single thing. Turns out amazing. Thank you, Ella, for the recipe.
they seem to be wonderful but every time I flip it on the streusal side they end up burning. is it because i dont have a non-stick pan? I put cooking spray before I put the pancake on the pan. what am i doing wrong? 🙁
I tried these today. The recipe was awesome but I didn’t had a nonstick pan… all I had was an old looking pan… the pancake failed so I decided to use a waffle machine 🙂 It worked!!!
