Apple Butter Pancakes are an easy fall breakfast recipe. Loaded with sweet, cinnamon apple butter. These are the perfect way to start the day.
Do you treat yourself on the weekends to something a little yummier than the standard breakfast??? We do sometimes- if I’m up for it we will make a full breakfast.
But the other day I decided I would whip up a small batch of Apple Butter Pancakes for the kids. Nothing special happening that day – it just seemed like a great idea. Partially because I am up to my eyeballs in apple butter around here.
So I’m finding all sorts of useful ways to add it to all sorts of things. Everyone is thankful – it’s all to tasty!!! We all love apple butter in this house- so really, I can’t go wrong when adding it to pancakes.
This recipe made about 9 pancakes – slightly larger than a saucer.
If you were doing silver dollar size you could probably get double that.

These pancakes are so light and fluffy. I like to top them with homemade buttermilk syrup or a traditional maple too.
Here are some commonly asked questions
Do I have to use homemade apple butter?
No, not at all. If you happen to have a jar that you picked up at your local farmers market or grocery store, by all means use that. I just happen to have apple butter on hand most of the time so it makes it easy for me to use homemade.
Can I use this method with pancake mix?
Sure you can. If you would prefer to simplify things for a busy morning, you can add the same amount of apple butter I call for in this recipe to your boxed pancake mix. We certainly do that when we are in a pinch for time. But whenever I can I like to make these 100% homemade.
