I don’t know about you – but I absolute love pancakes! It’s the perfect way to enjoy a gorgeous weekend brunch (or even a cheeky easy dessert).

This recipe is an absolute favourite in my house, not only because it’s quick and easy – but the pancakes come out super light and fluffy.

I hope you enjoy it – and if you do test out the recipe, I would love to see your creations.

Apple pancakes 


  • 2 apples – grated
  • I egg
  • 1/2 cup of buttermilk

  • 4 tablespoons of self raising flower
  • 1 teaspoon of raw sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • Cup of berries and caster sugar to decorate


Combine egg, sugar, cinnamon and salt, and whisk together with fork until smooth

Add buttermilk and continue whisking until it’s all one mixture

Add the flower and whisk (preferably for a electric whisker/mixer) until smooth

Add the apples and stir through

Heat pan and add oil

*I am a huge fan of Cobram Estate oil – for this particular recipe I have chosen to use the ‘light flavour intensity extra virgin olive oil’. It is a subtle blend with beautiful ripe fruit and apple notes with a distinct sweetness in the palate that work perfectly with the pancakes.

Take a tablespoon and scoop out the mixture – 3 pancakes at a time

Cook for 1 to 2 minutes on each side – and voila!

Add some beautiful fresh berries sprinkle with caster sugar, grab your favourite coffee and enjoy!

Serves: 11 pancakes
