Yummy Apple Cider Pancakes

"I had some cider that was getting sour (hardening?) and I always use powdered milk for cooking and thought why not give it a try? So we had pancakes made with powdered milk and apple cider instead of liquid milk. Surprisingly yummy!"

  1. Sift flour, powdered milk, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and baking soda together in a bowl. Whisk apple cider, 1/4 cup vegetable oil, and eggs together in a separate bowl. Stir apple cider mixture into flour mixture until batter is just combined.
  2. Heat 1 teaspoon vegetable oil in a griddle over medium-high heat. Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto the griddle and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

Using buttermilk gives these pancakes a nice tang and makes them fluffy.

How to Make Pumpkin Pancakes

These seasonal favorites are light, airy, and delicate, not dense and cakey.


  • Cook's Note:
  • If you prefer a thinner pancake, add a bit of water or more cider to the batter.
  • Griddle is hot enough when a drop of water skitters across it.

I cut this recipe in half for a trial run just to see if we liked it before I made a full batch. In a half batch, I did increase the baking powder to a full teaspoon and the baking soda to a half teaspoon. I also used a teaspoon of apple pie spice instead of plain cinnamon. I did use a good quality apple cider as well. The kids thought these were great--they ate all six pancakes. Thumbs up--this recipe's a keeper.

Makes a nice smooth pancake, not too sweet. Good use for leftover apple cider.


This recipe has potential, but needs tweaking. I followed this recipe to the letter, my review is based on the way it is written, and how they turned out without modifications. The batter was very thin, so I added a little more flour (the only change), and what I ended up with were pancakes that had no rise at all and were a bit rubbery. These pancakes were not even remotely "fluffy". On the positive side, it did have a nice, subtle apple-cinnamon flavor. This recipe definitely needs more baking soda and baking powder to get a better rise and some additional flour. I won't be making this again, instead, I think I'll just go back to my tried and true pancake recipe and add some apple pie spice.
