Perfectly fluffy apple pancakes with cinnamon streusel topping! These beauties are the ultimate Fall breakfast!


  • 1 cup flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup milk (more as needed)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons oil (or melted butter, whatever you prefer)
  • 1 medium red apple (I used gala – use your favorite!)
  • Streusel

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 6 tablespoons cold butter, diced
  • Instructions

  • Preheat a large pan, skillet, or griddle to medium-low heat.
  • In a small-medium bowl whisk together the flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon for the streusel. Cut in butter with two forks or a pastry cutter until mixture is crumbly. (You can also use your fingers!) Set aside.
  • Peel and dice apple, discarding core and seeds.
  • In a medium bowl whisk together flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt. Add milk, egg, and oil (or melted butter) and mix until ingredients are incorporated enough that there are no more flour streaks but the batter is still a little lumpy. Stir in diced apple pieces.
  • Lightly grease your pan/skillet/griddle. Drop 1-2 tablespoons of streusel mixture onto the pan. Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to pour batter directly on top of the streusel. Allow to cook for 1-2 minutes until edges begin to look “dry”, then flip, top with another 1-2 tablespoons of streusel, and allow to cook another minute or so until puffy and golden. Continue process until all of the pancake batter has been used.
  • Stack pancakes and top with any remaining cinnamon streusel. Serve warm with powdered sugar and maple syrup.
