Kris Kringle Cakes

Okay, so I know it's a little early for Christmas...but these pancakes are perfect for a fall morning too.

My mom used to make a version similar to these during the winter and their warm cinnamon oatmeal flavor would be a great way to start a weekend.

Yum.  I can smell them now. 

Kris Kringle Cakes - Adapted from Mom

1/2 C white wheat flour
1/2 C wheat flour
1 C oats (I used quick cook)
2 T brown sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
1 egg
1/3 C applesauce
1 C milk (+ a little extra)
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Mix together applesauce, egg, and vanilla.

Add milk.

Then, mix together the dry ingredients.

Combine wet and dry ingredients and stir until moist. You may need to add additional milk if the mixture seems overly thick. I added about 1/8 C more milk because as the mixture sits, it gets thicker.

Cook pancakes on a griddle heated to medium. Flip when little bubbles begin to form.

Enjoy warm, topped with fruit syrup, maple syrup, or applesauce!

  1. Ymmm! These sound awesome! I bet they smell wonderful baking too.

  2. Kris Kringle? Argh, another sign that Christmas is on the way - I've seen several in the past couple of days; I am so not prepared or ready.

    They sound really tasty though!

  3. Those look so pretty and sound great! I am horrible at making pancakes. I always burn them.

  4. These really sound wonderful for a lazy Saturday breakfast. They've become a must-do :-). I hope you're having a great day.u

  5. Yum! These look delicious =D. I might have to convert them!

  6. That last shot with the blueberry syrup looks just amazing. I've still been searching for the keeper pancake recipe, I'll have to give this one a try!

  7. These look great--especially w/the fruit topping!

  8. Oh, how special these look and I love the name!


  9. These sound delicious. I love the name!

  10. I like that - Adapted from Mom. These look comforting on a chilly Saturday morning.

  11. Pancakes are wonderful when they're made from scratch - a huge knotch above the boxed kind.

    Noticed you used applesauce - what did you sub it for? Oil?

  12. These sound delicious! I am going to try them this weekend. I also copied your Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Bread to try during the week! Great recipes on your site; I'll definitely be back.


  13. These sound like a perfect breakfast! I can practically smell it cookin'!

  14. Do you take these pictures yourself or have a helper? Love the story you tell with the images. Hope to see you over at Momtrends.

  15. These look really great. I love that they have oats in them. Yummy!

  16. OK Girl, you are 2 for 2! (Well, actually 4 for 4 if you count the cheese steaks and rolls...!) We tried these with the blueberry syrup and have another family winner!! They can't wait for tomorrow so they can have peanut butter sandwiches on these (a tradition around our house)!! Can't wait to try more of your recipes =)

  17. I am an old home cook that "retired" a few years ago and has had to come out of retirement. I stumbled upon you site and am really LIKING quite a few of your recipes (including this one)! I love how you SHOW how its done. GREAT JOB! I will be sending this on to my daughter who is just starting her "mommyhood" (and I am picky about what I send her for cooking)!


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
