Applesauce Pancakes are a go-to pancake recipe for my family made with basic baking ingredients like eggs, flour and baking soda with applesauce instead of oil and a pinch of cinnamon.
These are just like the pancakes my mom would make growing up. They are thick and hearty and really tasty with fresh fruit on top or a drizzle of warm maple syrup. My mom would also put lemon juice in her batter so that is something you can try out! Start with 1 teaspoon of lemon juice and see how you like it.
Applesauce Pancakes made for one delicious morning with the family. Family time and pancake mornings just go hand in hand. Do they not? I have memories of my mom cooking pancakes on Saturday mornings and we would all come to the table in our pajamas and I know I am giving my children those same memories. Makes pancakes sort of special.
