Sundays are the only day of the week when we’re not in a rush to get somewhere, so we try to make sure we have something a bit more interesting than cereal for breakfast.
Everyone loves pancakes, which are alway accompanied by plenty of fruit, then one day I thought about putting the fruit into the pancakes!
- 4 apples
- 100g plain flour
- 2 eggs
- 300ml milk
- 1 tbsp sunflower oil or vegetable, plus extra for frying
- pinch salt
- maple syrup/honey
- icing sugar
- First, make the batter
- Put the flour and salt into a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the centre & crack the eggs into it, then pour in about 50ml milk and 1 tbsp oil.
- Start whisking from the centre, gradually drawing the flour into the eggs, milk and oil.
- Once all the flour is incorporated, beat until you have a smooth, thick paste. Add a little more milk if it is too stiff to beat.
- While still whisking, pour in a steady stream of the remaining milk.
- Continue pouring and whisking until you have a batter that is the consistency of slightly thick single cream.
- Then, prepare the apples by peeling & slicing them into rings
- Heat some oil in a large frying pan
- Dip the apple rings into the batter & place in the pan
- Fry until both sides are brown & crispy
- Drain on kitchen roll
- Serve with maple syrup or sprinkle with icing sugar
