Apple pancakes

Breakfast: sometimes I will feel like eggs and salmon but 9 times out of 10 I opt for something sweet.

Pancakes have got to be one of the best breakfast options out there. I don't think I have ever heard someone say they don't like pancakes. The mere fact that there are 24hour Pancake Parlour, adds weight to their popularity (in fact I shall be eating my dessert at the Pancake Parlour tonight, most likely my childhood favourite, the Alice in Wonderland.)

I've tried many pancake recipes but I have never made one that only used around 3tbs of flour and was mostly grated apple. It seemed like a healthier version of my favourite breakfast so I was happy to try this one out.

ease: 5/5.
prep time: 5mins.
cooking time: 6mins.
total: 11mins.

taste: 4/5. These are basically apple fritters - I sprinkled mine with cinnamon sugar which gave a beautiful sweetness to the crispy tart apple. I increased the sugar in the batter to 1tsp.

would I make it again: Yes - Ryan prefers normal pancakes but I think these are a great healthier option.



  1. I was just thinking of making breakfast, and I have a Granny Smith apple!

  2. Hello pancakes! This sounds and looks delicious.

  3. I just made these for breakfast and put them up on my blog.

    They have a nice flavor and go well with coffee.

    Thanks, Greedy Gourmand, for providing us with inspiration for Sunday breakfast.

  4. Those pancakes look divine! The photo is beautiful as well.
