Apple Topping

Apple Cider Pancakes

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour*
  • 1/3 cup Imperial Sugar Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon apple pie spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil

*Spoon & Sweep method: Use a spoon to fill measuring cup with flour until required amount is obtained. Scooping measuring cup directly into flour bag will firmly pack flour resulting in too much flour required for recipe.


  1. For apple topping, melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Add in diced apples and stir until they start to soften.
  3. Mix in brown sugar and cinnamon. Stir until sugar dissolves and makes a syrup, about 5 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and set aside.
  5. For pancakes, heat griddle or large skillet over medium heat.
  6. Place flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, apple pie spice, and salt in a large bowl. Whisk to combine.
  7. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, buttermilk, apple cider, vanilla extract, and oil.
  8. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir to combine being sure not to overmix. Batter will be slightly lumpy.
  9. Spray griddle or pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  10. Scoop out batter with 1/4 cup and pour batter on hot griddle or pan.
  11. Cook until bubbles start to appear. Carefully flip over and cook for another 2 minutes.
  12. Spoon apple topping over pancakes to serve.
