Apple Pancakes Recipe

Makes 12 Pancakes

  • 1¼ cups flour                                     
  • 2 tablespoons sugar                           
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder               
  • ¾ teaspoons salt
  • 1-1/3 cup milk
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1 medium apple, peeled, cored & chopped

Mix  the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together in the large mixing bowl. Add the milk, egg, and apple and stir just until flour is moistened. 


Assign jobs among the children; one can peel and chop the apple while a couple others mix up the pancake batter.  Heat the skillet on the stove, coat the bottom with shortening.  When the pan is hot, pour in about ¼ cup batter for each pancake.  When the top of the pancake is bubbly and the edges look dry, flip the pancake over to cook the other side.  Serve each child a pancake on a paper plate with a napkin and a fork.  Let them add butter and syrup to taste.  When everyone has finished eating, assign each child a task to help clean up and put away utensils.
