Blogger Brooke McLay from Cheeky Kitchen loves apple pie. Especially when that pie flavor comes in the form of a pancake!

Streusel Topping

  • 1/4 cup Original Bisquick™ mix
  • 3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened


  • 1 cup Original Bisquick™ mix
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/8 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 can (21 oz) apple pie filling
  • Additional butter, if desired


  • 1
    In small bowl, mix topping ingredients with fork until crumbly; set aside until serving time.
  • 2
    In large bowl, stir together 1 cup Bisquick mix, the egg, milk and vanilla with whisk just until blended. Remove 1/4 cup batter to another small bowl; stir in 1 tablespoon cinnamon until batter is dark. Add cinnamon batter, 1 tablespoon at a time, to remaining vanilla batter, swirling lightly with spoon.
  • 3
    Heat griddle or skillet over medium-high heat (375°F). Brush with vegetable oil if necessary (or spray with cooking spray before heating). For each pancake, pour about 1/4 cup batter (or desired amount) onto hot griddle. Cook about 3 minutes or until bubbles form on top. Turn; cook other side until golden brown.

    Meanwhile, in small microwavable bowl, microwave pie filling uncovered on High 1 to 2 minutes or until warmed.
  • 5
    Top pancakes with a pat of butter and spoonful of warm pie filling; sprinkle with streusel topping.

  • Try cherry pie filling instead of apple for a fun twist!
  • Don’t have time to make the streusel? No worries! These pancakes taste just as good topped with butter and sprinkled with a bit of cinnamon-sugar.
  • If your measuring cup set doesn’t include an 1/8 cup, use 2 tablespoons instead.
