Pancake Day is almost upon us. Today I have for you super delicious Apple pancakes!!
Don’t worry if you a vegan or dairy free as you can easily make Apple pancakes suitable for yourself.
Crazy about (Apple) pancakes?
In our house pancakes come as a regular thing… weekends, during the week, doesn’t matter. As soon we think about pancakes there is more likely one or a dozen going to magically appear on our table… Even Zara can whip up her own batch and guess what – her signature are chocolate ones obviously!
We eat them sweet or savory adding various fillings depending on mood, weather, season of the year you get the idea.
I don’t think anyone ever can get bored of traditional lemon pancakes though and because we like variety I am saving it for Pancake Day next Tuesday.
Thick, chunky (apple) pancakes? Sounds intriguing?
Yesterday I have made some super tasty, super delicious Apple pancakes.
Apple pancakes can be eaten topped or plain because the apples I have used are already sweet.
Well, I have to admit, yesterday I have made it extra naughty. I have topped it with agave syrup and cream brûlée ice cream. Because Apple pancakes contain fruit I counted it towards my 5 a day.
The apple slices inside were still warm and slightly crisp. I have used my all time favorite Gala apples as those are the ones that we always have in the house. However if you prefer it less sweet or have your own preference you can use pretty much any apple brand.
What do Apple pancake taste like?
Crunchy apples dipped in cinnamon sugar covered in delicious, melting in mouth batter.
The pancake mix keeps the apple rings from fully cooking and it gives Apple pancakes a tasty, warm bite. The apples are sweet and juicy and the soft warm pancakes literally melting in your mouth!!
An absolute must try if you ask me plus super simple.
- 5 to 6 apples
Slice it into 3 to 4 rings each and core each ring. Drop the apple rings in cinnamon sugar. Set aside.
Prepare batter. Mix together gently:
- 250ml milk (or coconut milk if making Apple pancakes VEGAN)
- 150g plain flour
- 1 tbsp icing sugar (optional)
- dash vanilla
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
Semi warm up a frying pan. I have use non stick pan with a tiny bit of coconut oil. Depending on your pan and preferences you can as well use 1 calorie spray oil for super light Apple pancakes or fry it in a dash of sunflower or rapeseed oil.
Dip earlier prepared apple rings in batter and fry it for couple of minutes on each side or until golden brown.
Enjoy hot or cold.
