To make these pancakes, start by simply making the pancake batter of your choice. Next, sprinkle a bit of salt and a dash of cinnamon to both sides of each apple ring. Heat up your skillet and add the butter. Once the butter has melted, add your apple rings to the skillet. Cook for about 2 minutes and then flip. Then, simply cover the apple rings with the pancake mix and cook as you would traditional pancakes. Voilà! Now you have an amazing breakfast to serve your family!
