Pancake Apple Rings

Pancake Apple Rings

Whether you’re a pancake enthusiast or a donut lover, these apple rings are a must-try this fall season.

These apple pancake rings are the ultimate way to savor the apple harvest. All you need to do is dip these apple rings into some pancake batter, give them a quick pan fry, and finish them off with a generous dusting of cinnamon-sugar to create a delightful twist on classic fall pancakes.


  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • 2 medium apples, cored and sliced into 1/4-inch thick rings
  • 1 cup of prepared pancake batter (from pancake mix)
  • Maple syrup for serving


  1. Mix sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and set it aside.
  2. In batches, melt some butter in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until it starts sizzling. Take an apple ring, dip it into the pancake batter, making sure it’s fully coated on both sides. Gently tap off any excess batter, and then transfer the apple ring to the hot skillet. Cook without flipping until bubbles start forming around the base of the “pancake,” and it turns golden brown on the bottom, which should take about 2 minutes. Flip it and continue cooking until the other side is browned, approximately 1 more minute. Finally, transfer the cooked pancake ring to the bowl with the cinnamon-sugar and turn it to coat both sides. Move it to a plate and repeat the process with the remaining apple rings and butter.
  3. Serve your apple pancake rings with some maple syrup for dipping or drizzling. It’s a delightful fall treat that’s as easy as pie! 🍏🥞🍩
