Apple Crisp Pancakes

Apple Crisp Pancakes

Watch the video for this recipe:

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.

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.

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!!!

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!!!
