Diner Style Pancakes with Stewed Apples

Diner Flapjacks Pancakes

This recipe is the only diner-style pancakes you need in your life. It’s full fat, fluffy, and soaks up whatever saucy toppings you desire! I went with a simple and light stewed apple syrup. My favourite combinations are any of these salted butter, syrup, whipped cream, stewed fruit, powdered sugar and fresh lemon juice.


Side note: Allowing the dough to rest in the fridge results in a fluffier pancake. If you’re in a rush and you don’t have the time to allow the batter to rest/refrigerate for 30mins, just know the pancakes will still be deeeelicious.
