Tips & Tricks:

  • If pancake mix package calls for milk, use non-fat (skim) or low fat milk (1-2%). Health information will differ based on pancake mix and milk used.
  • Granny Smith apples work best in this recipe, but feel free to try your favorite variety.
  • To test the griddle to see if it is hot, sprinkle it with a few drops of water. When the drops sizzle and dance, you are ready to cook!
  • Use a ¼ cup measuring cup to pour the batter on the hot griddle. It makes it way easier and less messy!
