Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

Sunday Morning breakfast can be quick and easy, and that s what I need some mornings! I always use this pancake Krusteaz because its low fat and high fiber as well, with a nice blend of whole wheat and white flour…Plus no one notices the difference šŸ™‚

This AM I added in a snack pack sizeĀ  of natural no sugar added applesauce and 1 tbsp cinnamon, and made them on the stove top. I chopped up a large beautiful Gala apple and cooked it for about 8 in on high with 1 tbsp butter, 1 tbsp brown sugar ,1 tbspĀ  cinnamon and added 1/4 cup of raisins . Placed on top of the pancakes and drizzled lite maple syrup on top…:) Lets just say the kids devoured it and actually enjoyed the cooked apples. As did my husband and I. Happy Sunday!

An easy dessert that looks like you spent hours making it! So delicious and perfect for the Fall.

1 box of spice cake with cinnamon mixture that would be used to make a coffee cake. Make batter as directed in bowl and keep cinnamon crumbles seperate.

4 apples peeled and sliced thin

1/4 cup Maple Syrup

2 cake pans sprayed with cooking spray

Pre heat oven to 350. Drizzle the maple syrup on the bottom of each cake pan. Place sliced apples in one single layer in each pan. TopĀ  apples with 2 tbsp of the cinnamon crumbles/mixture . Add remaining cinnamon crumbs to batter and mix together. Spread batter on top of apples between both cake pans.Ā  Bake for 35-40 minutes. Allow to cool before inverting pan.Ā  Place 1 st cake layer on your serving platter by flipping the cake pan upside down. Place 2nd cake on top of the other one, so that the apples are in the middle and on top! Serve with cream and enjoy!
