Applesauce Pancakes

(4 servings)

  • 1 and 1/4 cups applesauce
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 large egg - lightly beaten
  • 1 Tablespoon butter - melted
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
These pancakes tend to be way more moist than your average pancakes. Some people like that because you get a real sense of the applesauce in the recipe. Other say it's too "gooey". Personally, I like it for a change of pace from normal pancakes. For an applesauce pancake that's more fluffy and traditional in texture, check the recipe for Applesauce Oatmeal Pancakes.
