For pancakes


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp corn syrup
  • 3-4 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 cup heavy/whipping cream boiling hot


  • 2 cups apples peeled, cored, diced
  • 1/4 cup sugar


To make the caramel

  1. Combine 1 cup sugar, 1 tbsp corn syrup & 3-4 tbsp water together in a pot. Bring to boil and stir with a wooden spoon until the sugar is dissolved.

  2. Bring cream to boil in microwave or in a different pot.
  3. Allow the sugar to cook undisturbed over medium heat until it’s amber in color. (WATCH IT, as it goes from amber to burnt in a matter of 5 seconds, literally)
  4. Slowly pour in 1/2 cup hot cream into the caramel, and stir with a wooden spoon to combine.

  5. Cook for another 1-2 minutes. Take off the heat.

Make the apples

  1. Combine 1/4 cup sugar & 2 cups apples together. Allow cooking in a pot over medium heat for about 20 minutes.

  2. Take off the heat when soft.

Make the pancakes

  1. Whisk 4 eggs and 1/2 cup sugar together, add 2 cups buttermilk and 3⅓-3½ cups flour and mix using a whisk or a mixer until smooth.

  2. In a cup mix 2 tsp baking soda and 2 Tbsp vinegar. Add to the batter and whisk until smooth.

  3. On medium low heat, using a non-stick pan, bake the pancakes using 1-2 tablespoons of oil for every 'round' of pancakes. Using a ladle or a large spoon, pour batter into small rounds. Turn pancakes when bubbles start breaking on the top.

To serve:

  1. Place apples over pancakes. Drizzle with caramel.

  • Wow, amazing pancakes! I have never made caramel before this but well worth making it homemade 🙂 These are perfect for a fall morning when fresh apples are in season.

    • Hi Tina, Thank you!
      To honest I do not remember, but it might’ve been from Home Goods or Crate & Barrel. It’s been a while since I got it.

    Looks really good. But what do you mean by cream?

    · Reply
    • It’s heavy cream or whipping cream (liquid).
