Apple Pancakes.

Here is a quick and easy snack for tea-time. The best part about this snack is the use of apple and you do not even notice it. These pancakes were a sure hit with my children. Here goes the recipe :-

You need :-

  • 250 gms plain flour
  • 1 and a half tsp baking powder
  • 4 tbsp castor sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 15g/half ounce butter melted
  • 300 ml milk
  • 1 apple
  • Chocolate sauce or maple syrup to serve
Method :-
  1. Sift the flour and baking powder in a mixing bowl. Make a well in the centre and add the egg and melted butter. Gradually whisk in the milk to form a smooth batter.
  2. Peel, core and grate the apple and stir it into the batter.
  3. Heat a heavy based frying pan over medium heat and grease it lightly.
  4. For each pancake, place about 2 tablespoons of the batter onto the frying pan and spread to make a 3 inch round.
  5. Cook for a few minutes until you see bubbles appear on the surface of the pancake. Turn over and cook for a further 1 minute. Remove from the pan and keep warm.
  6. To serve, stack 3 or 4 pancakes on a serving plate and serve them with chocolate sauce or maple syrup.
