Apple & Cinnamon Pancakes (GF)

Listen up folks, Pancake Day is not far off! I wasn’t going to make anything new this year, but last weekend Mr Fox was feeling poorly so I said I’d make pancakes to cheer him up. He loves his apples and so requested apple and cinnamon pancakes, so I experimented a little with our usual pancake recipes. When I’ve made apple pancakes in the past, I’ve done them with apple slices on top like my mum used to make, but she is obviously much better at flipping pancakes topped with apple slices as mine always ended up in a mess. So I decided to grate the apples in to the batter this time, and it worked a treat! The grated apple and cinnamon also makes these so sweet, you don’t need any sugar though I did add a little honey.

apple and cinnamon pancakesIngredients

  • 200g gluten free plain flour (I use Dove’s Farm)
  • 2 heaped table spoons shredded psyllium husks
  • 4 heaped teaspoons gluten free baking powder (I also use Dove’s Farm for this)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 heaped teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 eggs
  • 300ml milk
  • 100ml vegetable oil (plus extra for the pan)
  • 2 tablespoons runny honey
  • 2 small Gala apples (plus extra to serve)

apple and cinnamon pancakesDirections

  • Peel, core and grate the apples and set aside.
  • Mix the flour, psyllium husks, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a bowl.
  • In another bowl, whisk the eggs and mix with the milk, vegetable oil and honey.
  • Pour the wet ingredients in to the dry ingredients and mix well until combined. I used a hand held whisk for this.
  • Once you have a smooth batter, mix in the grated apples.
  • Heat a little oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat – too high and the pancakes will start to burn before they are cooked through.
  • Spoon two to three small pools of batter in to your pan. They will try to run in to each other, but as long as the batter hasn’t fully set you can push it back with a spatula to separate them. You can see in the photo above how mine ended up. It that seems like too much faff, you could also just make one large pancake but then I’d recommend using a smaller pan as gluten free pancakes are hard to flip without breaking if they are too big.
  • Once the batter starts to bubble and set on top, it’s time to carefully flip your pancakes to cook the other side. It should take about 2-3 minutes for each side.
  • Serve with extra slices of apple. You can also drizzle more honey on top if you like, but we found the pancakes sweet enough as they were.

    These look delicious – I love the apple & cinnamon flavour combo, it’s one of my favourites! I would never be able to flip a pancake with apple slices on top – your mum clearly has amazing skills – but grated in the mix I could just about manage. I’m so lazy with pancakes usually that I tend to stick to the classic batter, but these sound so good, I will have to give them a go!

    Yum! They look good, I always forget about pancake day despite buying everything ready and it usually ends up being about a month later for us lol I usually stick with the traditional lemon juice and sugar but my son loves trying new flavours on his.
