Tasty apple pie pancakes made with whole grain flour and topped with delicious cubes of sweet sautéed apple.
Ingredients
  • For the Pancakes:
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ⅛ tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 medium apple, peeled and grated
  • For the Topping:
  • 2 apples, cored and diced
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
Instructions
  1. In a medium bowl, mix the milk and cider vinegar and put to one side.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
  3. To the milk mixture, add the egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract, and whisk well.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined (don’t over mix or you will get tough pancakes).
  5. Gently fold the grated apple into the mixture.
  6. Heat a skillet over a medium heat, add a touch of vegetable oil, and pour about ¼ cup of batter per pancake onto the heated griddle.
  7. Once bubbles start to surface, flip the pancake and cook for another minute or two, until both sides are lightly brown.
  8. Meanwhile, for the topping, place the butter in a pan over a medium low heat.
  9. Once it has melted, add the apple, sugar, and cinnamon, cover, and cook gently for 5 to 7 minutes.
  10. Serve the pancakes with a spoonful of the sautéed apple.
