Apple Pancake Recipe

Ingredients (Makes 4)
Time: 35 minutes

  • 2 tablespoons applesauce

  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

  • 2 egg whites (or 1 egg)

  • 1 cup milk

  • 1 tart apple, shredded

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour(see suggestions)

  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons white sugar

  • Directions

    In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the applesauce, melted butter, egg whites, milk, and shredded apple.

    In a medium mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and sugar. Make a well in the center of this dry mixture and pour in the wet mixture. Stir just until everything is moistened (lump are okay).

    Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour 1/4 cup apple pancake batter onto the griddle. Brown on both sides and serve hot. These are great just plain or topped with your favorite syrup.

    Follow these directions then experiment with your own ingredients, using our tips and techniques, to make your own apple cinnamon pancake recipe from scratch!

    Make this apple pancake recipe even better
    (for you) by substituting the all purpose flour for a whole grain flour. Whole wheat flour is an obvious substitute. Worried about compromising flavor and texture? Don't be! There are many types of whole wheat flours that are sweeter and lighter. Hard white wheat flour creates similar results as all white but is much better for you. There are other choices, too, like kamut flour, spelt flour, oat flour, and teff flour. These are all healthier alternatives. So ENJOY!
