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 

Ingredients:

  • 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

Recipe:

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
