Apple Pancake

Fed up of coming down like a robot each morning and popping the bread in the toaster and waiting for the obligatory pop up , I thought why not do an apple pancake to add a twist and excitement to my dull January day. I know there are very recipes out there you could use but I just made one up as I went along and that for me is the best way as I can tweak it every time I come to cook it in future.


2 eating apples
1 and half table spoons of plain flour
a tea spoon of spread
Splash of milk to bind
Fillings if you wish , you are only limited by your imagination.


Grate the apples 

Add the flour combing with the apple into a paste , add a little low fat spread 

Add a splash of milk mix until smooth 

Heat some oil in a pan 

Pour in the mixture 

Flip !

Ensuring you cook all the way through a couple minutes on each side should do it .

 Place any filling in the middle and serve !!

I drizzled Candian maple syrup on mine.

Apple Pancake

This is my entry into this months Credit Crunch month as nearly everyone will have these ingredients in.As this January I had had to buy new furniture and my washing machine has just given up the ghost so it is definitely a Credit Crunch Month.


  1. Oh yum. Although come on use butter! I am not a low fat spread girl!

  2. Ooh this sounds amazing! I've done banana pancakes before but never thought to do apple ones. I'm definitely adding this to my list of things to try. Ooh with cinnamon. Mmmm :)

  3. Ohhhhh sounds so delicious! Apple pancakes. I haven't thought of that before, but now I seriously have to try it. With cinnamon. And loads of maple syrup. That's the way to start a day :)

  4. I do love a pancake. Like you, I have a rebellious streak and never wait til Shrove Tuesday!

  5. Ooooh nice - have never put them with fruit before though! Im a firm believer of "A pancake is not just for Shrove Tuesday" ;) Do me one with maple syrup and one with lemon and sugar and Im a happy girl x

  6. Oh wow, what a great idea, sounds delicious! I am so going to try that - was a bit disappointed with banana pancakes if I'm honest...

  7. Ooh yummy! This looks delicious, I must give it a go! I like the idea of putting the fruit in the mix x

  8. Loving the addition of apple to these pancakes Claire - thanks for a great
    #CreditCrunchMunch entry:-)

  9. What I love about these is that you can make them without eggs, so they are super scalable. Thanks for sharing with #CreditCrunchMunch
