Pecan Apple Pancakes

Who doesn’t love a great pancake? Everybody at my house, that’s for sure. These beauties came off the griddle the morning after Thanksgiving and they were the perfect start to our relaxing weekend.

At first I didn’t know if they were going to be a hit with all the members of our family. Little guy was not too excited when he saw the browning shredded apples on top of the batter. In fact, he declared he was not going to eat breakfast that morning. Now don’t get me wrong, he can be a stubborn little boy but I can be just as stubborn. The first batch of pancakes and bacon went to Grandma. Once he got a whiff of the pancakes and heard how yummy they were he was retracing his steps quickly. Good thing his mama is so forgiving! 🙂

These will definitely be made again. The recipe was easy to follow and the pancakes were so tasty. The only negative to this was that it made a lot of pancakes and we could only cook three at a time so it took a while to get all the batter cooked up. I guess if you didn’t want as big of a batch you could halve it, but they were great the next day so maybe you will want a full batch. Enjoy!
