The tastiest pancakes to make for your breakfasts this weekend!

Am I the only one who thinks that sometimes fluffy pancakes can be a bit dry? I have to smother them in maple syrup sometimes. A couple of weeks ago I had a load of apples to finish off before some new arrived, so I started experimenting with a pancake recipe. I served it to the kids and had some myself and I immediately fell in love! The addition of apples here not only adds flavour, but also makes them really moist. They are our family’s new favourite by a mile and I now can’t wait to get new apples every week just so I can make more! I’m so addicted.

  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tbsp sugar or maple syrup
  • 4 tbsp milk of choice (I use cow’s milk)
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 small red apple, cored and sliced into big pieces
  • 1 1/4 cups self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Put all the ingredients in a blenderexcept the flour. When they are blended add the flour too and pulse until you get a smooth batter.
Heat up a non-stick pan on a low heat. Put one or more tablespoons of the mixture, gently shape the pancakes and let them cook. I like to make them relatively small as they are easier to flip and I can fit more in the pan so I just use one tablespoon for each one.
Flip them when you see bubbles starting to appear on the other side. For a small pancake that will only take 1 minute. Let them cook for another minute on the other side and plate them up.
Make sure not to overcook them to keep the middle nice and moist! Take them off the heat as soon as you see the outside is done.
  • if you are fed up of the classic apple and cinnamon combination and want something fresher, try replacing the cinnamon for the zest from one lemon!

    What about using applesauce?

      I am sure that would work too, and it's a great idea, but I've never tried. Let me know if you do and how they turn out for you :D

    I’ve been using apples for years. Also use peaches, strawberries, raspberries, bananas, blackberries, mango…whatever fruit I have in my fridge and want to use up. My favourite is apples with cinnamon of course!!❤️
