In case you didn’t know, today is National Pancake Day, and in celebration I’m sharing a festive, fall pancake recipe that I think you’re gonna love — Apple Cinnamon Pancakes! These cinnamon spiced pancakes are light and fluffy with a maple-flavored homemade apple topping that’s really simpler to make than you might think.

John is usually the official pancake cook at our house, so while he was mixing up his normal pancake batter recipe (to which he added cinnamon) and heating up the griddle, I peeled and diced a couple of apples for the topping. That was literally the most difficult thing about this recipe, so I know you can tackle it!

Because the apples are diced into small pieces, they cook very quickly. Within five minutes, this sauce is done and ready to pour over your stacks of pancakes! I used Golden Delicious apples, but really any type of apples will work just fine in this easy recipe.

When the girls were small, we often made chocolate chip pancakes sprinkled with powdered sugar as a special treat on Saturdays. (I know, I know…sugar overload!). Not that there’s anything wrong with chocolate chip pancakes, but now we also enjoy more “sophisticated” pancakes like today’s Apple Cinnamon Pancakes, Raspberry Oatmeal Pancakes, Lemon Poppy Seed Ricotta Pancakes, Peach and Sour Cream Pancakes, or Pumpkin Walnut Flapjacks. There’s nothing boring about any of those pancakes!

“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,” said Piglet at last, “what’s the first thing you say to yourself?”
“What’s for breakfast?” said Pooh. “What do you say, Piglet?”
“I say, I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today?” said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully. “It’s the same thing,” he said.
