Usually on the weekend we make some form of pancakes or some form of 'big breakfast' as we call it! This past sunday I decided to make pancakes but wanted some form of change so this is what I ended up with..
Apple and Cinnamon Pancakes
1 basic pancake mixture
2 apples cored and quartered
2 tbspns brown sugar
2 tsp ground cinnamon
You just use your standard pancake mix..mine is as follows..
Pancake mix for 4
320g flour (either self raison or plain with a raising agent..i just added a tsp of bicarb soda)
pinch of salt
Normally I put the flour and salt in the thermomix and turbo a couple of times to mix it through, then add the eggs and mix on speed 3 or so for a couple of seconds to mix through and finally i add the milk in two or three lots and mix after each addition until you have a smooth mixture. Let sit for 30 minutes or so then cook as usual.
For this recipe though I put two apples, cored and quartered but with skin on (i used organic so I leave the skin) into the bowl and chopped on speed 4 to 5 for about 5 seconds or until finely chopped. If you dont like 'bits' you could mix until a puree. I then added the cinnamon and brown sugar followed by the flour, salt and egg and mixed for a few seconds on speed 4 to mix well. Finally add the milk in 2 or 3 lots until you have a smooth mixture.
Ideally you should let it sit for about 30 minutes but I didnt have any time so cooked it straight away and it was still fine.
You could serve it with whatever you like, either a little butter, maple syrup, cream, icecream, custard..whatever takes your fancy. It was a nice change to standard pancakes..
