Apple Pancake Recipe: sort of from scratch

Over the Thanksgiving weekend, one of my amazing sister-in-laws cooked a pancake breakfast for everyone that I'm about 99.9% sure was entirely from scratch. She's an amazing cook, and I wish she'd start blogging again, but that's another story for another time.

While I'm not going to share my SIL's pancake recipe, I am going to share with you how I like to spice up my own not-entirely-from-scratch pancakes.

It's really simple. Just use your favorite pancake mix, but before adding any water I shred a full apple into my mixing bowl. Toss to coat, then add a little water (or whatever other ingredients your particular mix requires).

Don't forget to add a generous sprinkling of cinnamon. Then cook in heavy pan to a golden brown.

Sometimes I use banana instead of apple. Top it off with a little peanut butter and YUM.

I'm not a huge breakfast person. Honestly, I'm just not a morning person in general. Lately, I've really been into all kinds of breakfast foods, though. What are some of your favorite breakfasts?
